We got a wonderful email yesterday notifying us that Charles has been named a finalist in the 2013/2014 ARC Salon exhibition!
We don't know yet which painting made it in since their list only included artists' names. To increase suspense they're withholding title and category information until the exhibition goes live and the awards are announced in early May.
The ARC Salon is an annual online exhibition created by the Art Renewal Center and is in its 10th year. Their website is a vast repository of classical realist art and receives over 5 million annual visitors.
