Lacey's painting "Eartha Delights IV" will travel to Barcelona, Spain later this year as part of a traveling exhibition. This honor came about as the painting was selected as a Rehs Gallery Finalist in the Art Renewal Center's 2014/2015 Annual International Salon.
For the first time many of the works from the ARC Salon will be exhibited in a live traveling exhibition that will start at the MEAM Museum in Barcelona, Spain, where it will be on view from November 17th till December 28th to celebrate an intense collaboration between Europe and America for representational art. The ARC Salon's works will be mounted at the same time the MEAM mounts its 8th Figurativas Painting and Sculpture Competition. The MEAM competition is organized by the Foundation of the Art and the Artists, which is, along with the ARC Salon, the other most important competition for representational art in the Western world in which more than 2,300 artists from more than 90 countries participate. The 8th Figurativas Painting and Sculpture Competition, Figurativas 2015, will run between November 17th and January 10th. The Official Awards Ceremony of ARC Salon and Figurativas 2015 winners will take place as one tremendous event on November 20th, 2015 at 19:00 hours at the European Museum of Modern Art (MEAM) in Barcelona and a Forum of American and European representational artists will take place the following day on Saturday the 21st. Works for this exhibit are still being selected, though the MEAM Purchase Award and the ARC Purchase Awards shown below will all be included. The ARC Salon portion of the show will then travel to New York City, where it will hang at the Salmagundi Club from January 18th to February 4th.
