"...Once again the quality of work submitted to this year's competition was overwhelming....
Since it's inception 6 years ago, the ARC Salon™ has evolved considerably. One of the most significant changes has been in the overall quality of the work submitted, which continues to impress us anew each year and makes the finalist selection process ever more challenging. Last year the finalists were narrowed down to 204 works and this year we struggled even to get the number down to the 368 that were eventually submitted to the judges for award consideration. We then removed an additional 82 images that did not receive any votes, giving you the 286 images displayed here.
For the first time this year, we added an animal category which produced 31 finalists from an enthusiastic and talented new pool of artists. If there was ever a year to purchase a catalogue, this would be it. With over 80 more works than previous years, this expanded catalogue will display over 300 full-color images from some of the best realist artists in the world."
