Lacey's painting "Eartha Delights IV" is included in this traveling exhibition.
The Art Renewal Center, a 501C3 non-profit educational foundation dedicated to the renewal of traditional training techniques in the visual arts is pleased to present the winners and finalists of the 2014/2015 International ARC Salon Competition. There was an approximate 2,500 entries this year by over 1,050 artists. The works of contemporary realism featured in this upcoming exhibit just returned from a show hosted at the European Museum of Modern Art (MEAM) in Barcelona, Spain. While there, the ARC Salon winners were shown alongside winners from the 2015 Figurativas competition, a prestigious European representational art competition. The combining of these two shows was a historic event for the representational art movement of Post Contemporary Art, and constituted one of the largest collaborative shows on contemporary realism in the Western world. The ARC portionwill hang at the Salmagundi Club from January 18th to February 4th, 2016.
ARC will be planning several lectures and educational events during the time the show will be in New York including a collaboration with the Da Vinci Initiative, whose mission is to bring skill-based techniques like those embodied by the works in the ARC Salon into K-12 classrooms. Tickets for all events are available for sale/RSVP through the ARC website. All proceeds will help fund the ARC and help to pay for the costs involved with running the show.
The Salmagundi Club is located on 47 Fifth Avenue, New York, NY 10003.
