Introduction

12th Annual ARC Salon (2016-2017)

MEAM/Salmagundi

12th International ARC Salon Exhibition

ARC is pleased to present the winners and finalists of the 12th International ARC Salon Competition. This year we have 1,006 finalist works by 640 artists from 63 countries, representing 32% of works submitted. We will now be starting the selection of our approximately 75 works for the live version of the ARC Salon that will travel from the Salmagundi Club, New York, New York to the MEAM Museum in Barcelona, Spain. While in Barcelona, the ARC Salon's works will be mounted at the same time the MEAM mounts its 9th 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. We will be holding a joint award ceremony for the winners of the ARC Salon and Figurativas Competitions in September of 2017 at the MEAM. The list below is an expanding list of all the works to be included in the Live Exhibition. This list will eventually include approximately 75 to 100 works in total.
