Congratulations Stephen Jesic
ARC Living Master™ (A.R.C.L.M)

Morpeth Gallery is delighted to announce resident wildlife artist Stephen Jesic
has received prestigious recognition from the Art Renewal Centre in America. 

Stephen Jesic has been inducted as an ARC Living Master ™ (A.R.C.L.M).

After a stringent application process and meeting of a jury the Art Renewal Centre has inaugurated Stephen Jesic with their highest honour ARC Living Master™ which is awarded to affiliated artists who demonstrate command over the art fundamentals as taught by the masters of prior centuries. ARC Living Masters have successfully created an identifiable body of work which demonstrates their understanding of the craft and it’s traditions. Their work exhibits strong, poetic sensibilities which intertwine great universal subjects with powerful original compositions and have mastered all aspects of their craft.

Stephen holds memberships with Artists for Conservation (AFC), is a Signature member of Animal Artists New York and is a multiple international award winning artist. His originals are available exclusively at Morpeth Gallery.

He is the second of our resident artists to be awarded this prestigious title. Metalpoint and wildlife artist Gordon Hanley received this accolade in 2015. Still life Artist Ann Morton and Wildlife artist Maegan Oberhardt have previously been awarded the honour of ARC Living Artist ™.
