Event History

Leading the revival of realism in the visual arts, the Art Renewal Center (ARC) was founded in 1999. It is a 501(c)(3), non-profit, educational foundation which hosts the largest online museum dedicated to representational art with works by the old masters, 19th century, and 21st Century Artists as well as articles, letters and other resources. The ARC is the foremost vetting service for representational art schools ensuring that the curricula and quality of work meet our standards to be ARC Approved™. The ARC also runs the ARC Salon Competition, the largest competition in the world for realist artists, culminating in a live exhibition. The first ARC Salon Competition was introduced in 2004 as an online event. In 2012 ARC started working with magazines, galleries and museums to offer partnering awards and in 2014, the live exhibition was introduced. Last cycle, the ARC received over 5,400 entries from 75 countries and exhibited at Sotheby’s NY in July of 2023. The 17th competition has a panel of 24 prestigious category jurors and over 50 jurors total including partnering awards.

What Makes this event different?

The International ARC Salon, unlike other competitions, is only dedicated to representational art and artists. Representational artwork in all styles spanning from highly realistic to impressionistic to imaginative qualify. Categories for submission include: Figurative, Portraiture, Imaginative Realism, Fully From Life, Plein Air Painting, Landscape, Still Life, Drawing, Sculpture, Animals, and a special category for teens. To ARC’s knowledge there is not another visual art competition that offers the number of categories and diversity of awards as the ARC Salon Art Competition. Organizations from around the world participate in offering a variety of prizes and opportunities for artists, launching careers and gaining international recognition. The ARC Salon is also flexible for artists in that works entered into the competition do not have to be available for sale, though there are sale opportunities for works that are, and works do not have to be available to travel in the live exhibition to compete and win the top awards in the competition. There are always enough works that are available to create the show.
