Determined to restore the universal language of realism in the visual arts, a group of fine artists and experts formed the Art Renewal Center in 1999. Since their genesis, this non-profit educational foundation has dedicated itself to encouraging rigorous skill-based training in the methods of the Old Masters, bestowing the title of 'ARC Approved' on ateliers who share their core values and demonstrate technical mastery. Their annual competition is the largest and most prestigious for realist-based art in the USA, arguably the world. This year's winners demonstrate the great breadth and originality that can be found in all facets of fine art.

Categories include: Figurative, Portraiture, Imaginative Realism, Landscape, Animals, Sculpture, Drawing, Still Life, Plein Air and the DaVinci Initiative Award for the Young Aspiring Artists.
