Artist Round Table Zoom Bi-Monthly Sessions Follow Up Letter

Greetings, you are receiving this newsletter because you are registered for our Artist Round Table Bi-Monthly Zoom Sessions. We will be sending a follow-up newsletter like this after each session to highlight the key points that were discussed. We hope that you and your family are healthy and safe. From our bubble to yours, we wish you a Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year!

We would like to first congratulate everyone who made it to the 15th ARC Salon Finalists List! ARC received 4,941 entries this year from 83 countries. 1,977 works have been selected as semi-finalists. We look forward to the announcement of honorable mentions and winners, which will be posted by ARC on January 13th, 2021. (We apologize if we forgot to mention anyone)

Please take a moment to check out this Virtual Exhibition, which Shawna Lampi-Legaree is a part of, together with many internationally acclaimed artists. At least 40% of the proceeds from artwork sales benefit conservation and environmental education, and each artwork is dedicated to supporting a conservation organization of the artist’s choice.


Here is the artist that Natalie Featherston mentioned - Donald Roller Wilson.

We are all thrilled to find out that Kelly Birkenruth was invited to participate in the International Women’s Day Exhibition at the European Museum of Modern Art (MEAM) in Barcelona, Spain. The Exhibit is scheduled for March 2021. Kelly’s work will be on display among 70 international artists.
