CPAP Named Sponsor of ARC International Salon Competition

CPAP has joined with the Art Renewal Center to become a Sponsor for the 2016 and 2017 ARC International Salons. In 2016 CPAP will sponsor the Landscape Category and in 2017 will sponsor a brand new Plein Air Category that will feature cash awards of $4,000 for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place finishers. ARC Chairman Fred Ross and ARC Chief Operating Officer Kara Lysandra Ross had this to say: "The Art Renewal Center (ARC) is delighted to have your organization as sponsors for the Landscape Category in the 12th International ARC Salon. We are also proud to work with you on creating a Plein Air Category in the 13th International ARC Salon to provide additional opportunities to plein air artists from around the world. We  very much look forward to collaborating with your organization on promoting the work your organization does for the advancement of the 21st century Realist Art Movement and contemporary plein air works. Plein air painting is truly its own genre, style and technique and it deserves its own recognition, independently of the other current eight categories in the ARC Salon."

The most prestigious realist art competition in the Americas, and perhaps the world, the International ARC Salon offers over $100,000 in cash awards and International recognition through partnerships with prestigious magazines including Fine Art Connoisseur, Plein Air Magazine, and Collector Magazine as well as galleries, museums and a strong online presence.

Artwork from this year's event will travel from New York City to the MEAM (Museum of European Art Modern), in Barcelona, Spain an in several galleries in the United States including the Arcadia Gallery in Santa Monica, California.
