ARC is pleased to present the winners of the 2010/2011 Salon Competition. Picking finalists this year was harder than ever and we are confident that our viewers will enjoy looking through the winners and finalists as much as we did. In fact, our number of finalists is up 16% from last year, which has added a number of additional pages to the catalogue.
In addition, we have given extra pages for the winners, ensuring that each 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winner was given its own page and Honorable Mentions are limited to two per page. We have also included enlarged details in many cases and enlarged the size of the images overall. The 7th Annual Competition Catalogue also includes Edmund Blair Leighton: The Prominent Outsider, by Kara Ross, first published in Fine Art Connoisseur and then reprinted in the Epoch Times. It includes new information and exquisite images of this important 19th Century artist.
"Nothing says more about a culture then the art it idolizes. It represents what it values, what it thinks about, and essentially what it deems worth remembering. Art is the representation of a people, encapsulating its essence on every level. The artists participating in this competition are helping to bring the culture back to its most important root, its humanity."
