14th ARC Salon Results Announced

Published June 30, 2019

The Art Renewal Center is pleased to present the winners and finalists of the 14th International ARC Salon Competition! This year the ARC received over 4,300 entries from 73 countries. Our finalists represented here today constitute approximately 35% of works submitted, just over 1500 works. ARC has acquired 16 new works for the ARC collection, valued at over $125,000.

Our highest award, Best in Show, went to Gregory Mortenson, for his figurative entry of 'Standing Proud', where Mortenson depicts a young girl he met while working on a humanities project in Haiti. About the work, Mortenson said, "This young girl is growing up in an orphanage in Haiti. She has survived an earthquake and a hurricane and is still standing proud." With her feet firmly planted on rocky soil, this contemporary depiction of human strength meets the viewer eye to eye.
