Here is an introduction to Art Renewal Center (ARC) from ART president Alexandra’York's latest NewsMax article:
Receiving its 501(c) (3) nonprofit status
in 2002, ARC was founded by Fred Ross (Chairman), Brian Yoder, and Sherry Ross.
The organization offers an online museum with thousands of painting and
sculpture images to enjoy, but it is the impact on education and spearheading
the now-burgeoning humanistic art culture out from the dismal ashes left from
20th-century nihilism that are its greatest achievements.
Education programs were begun by discovering the few schools and
ateliers teaching in the established Western-heritage tradition —
representationalism with intelligible subject matter — and made them known to
students, often giving tuition scholarships. These efforts dramatically
increased enrollment and produced accomplished artists creating a need for more
schools; there are now 75 ARC-approved schools and workshops worldwide training
thousands of eager students. ARC also sponsors a flourishing international
Salon Competition. This year is their 13th International ARC Salon with over
3,750 entries from 69 countries and a touring show of winners and finalists
exhibited recently in New York City at the Salmagundi Club that will travel to
Sotheby's, Los Angeles in December, and then on to the MEAM museum in
Fred’s background and
furtherance of realism in the arts is impressive: Founder and Chairman of the
Art Renewal Center, he is also the leading authority and co author of a
monograph on renowned 19th century French painter William Bouguereau. His speeches and essays are read by over
300,000 art professionals, educators, students and fans each year and have
become required reading in countless classrooms. Fred is also a well known collector of 19th century
European painting and of Contemporary Realism as well. All in one, he is art
educator/lecturer; President of the Bouguereau Committee; art expert and
collector, writer; artist; published art historian on the 19th Century;
and Salon and Scholarship judge.
