15th ARC Salon Final Results Have Posted

The Art Renewal Center is pleased to present the winners and finalists of the 15th International ARC Salon Competition! This year the ARC received 4,941 entries from 83 countries. For the first time we introduced a semi-finalist round and are presenting both finalists and semi-finalists in these competition results, as we are proud to host the images of all these works for public view. 40% of entries, which translates as 1,977 works, qualified as semi-finalists, which is in and of itself a great accomplishment, as there were a large number of very fine works that did not qualify as semi-finalists. Our ARC Salon Finalists comprise of a select group of the very top-rated entries, 1,155 works in all, or 23% of entries. ARC has acquired 11 new works for the ARC collection, valued at over $140,000. Our highest award, Best in Show, which is a $25,000 prize, has gone to Robert Liberace (USA) for his entry of “Spartan”. “Spartan” has also won an ARC Purchase Award with an additional prize amount. In total, 208 awards and honorable mentions have been given out.
