Bargue Encore by Peter Trippi

Published August 27, 2021

The article Bargue Encore, by Peter Trippi, has recently been added to the ARC website.

"For anyone interested in traditional art instruction, 19th century culture, or even just superb printmaking, 2021 is now a year of historical and educational significance. After decades of research and planning, the Bargue Encore project has launched with the publication of 10 exquisite lithographs that replicate 10 of the plates in Charles Bargue’s legendary Cours de Dessin, or Drawing Course. The visionaries who have guided this effort to completion are Daniel Graves, director and founder of the Florence Academy of Art in Italy, and Pierre Alloueteau, director and founder of Signus Publishing in southwestern Switzerland."

Nathaniel Skousen in PoetsArtists

Published August 6, 2021

Nathaniel Skousen, winner of the PoetsArtists Magazine award in the 15th International ARC Salon, has recently had an interview published in PoetsArtists.

Many times we as artists are tempted to think, I am happy where I am at, and it is easy to stop asking questions about our creative process. When the artistic mind is available to be nurtured and tuned in these artistic voices then ideas will arrive and can become reality... "
