Shown: Julien, 'Best in Show'
by Hiroshi Furuyoshi of Japan



World class art experts brought on board to choose the winners of the Salon this year were overwhelmed with the quality of over 1600 entries from more than 30 countries.


ARC Salon Catalogues, with their beautiful color reproductions of the ARC International Salon Winners, are eagerly awaited for each year and treasured as collections of today's masters.

The 5th Annual ARC Salon was once again a demonstration of the will of artists dedicated to representational work. Art Renewal Center is at the helm of the effort to provide necessary training for dedicated artists, no longer willing to study only theories and "styles" beloved of the modern art establishment.

There were so many deserving entries which one could simply not ignore that an extra listing of semi-finalists was created to list their names in appreciation of their skill.

In this year's catalogue, ARC Chairman, Fred Ross' speech to the American Society of Portrait Painters delivered at the Metropolitan Museum of Art will be included in its entirety:
"Mr Ross was interrupted at least 10 times to thunderous applause or peals of laughter, as he blasted Modernism and its chief icons, Picasso, Mattisse and DeKooning, with some of the most biting, yet truthful satire that has ever been heard in those sanctified halls."
