During 2019 and the beginning of 2020, Victor received a number of distinct and very special honors.  Some have been shared on his FaceBook page, but some have not been shared  altogether.  These are now incorporated into an updated version of Victor's Resume, Etc. page.


To begin 2019, Victor  was asked to participate in the public art project, Javelinas de Tubac  , which is detailed on its own page on this website.

Then, VSR was asked to participate in a website for artists called Artavita.  He currently has 5 images in his online portfolio with this site and a short artist statement.  This website and their sponsors have many different opportunities for artists that he looks forward to taking part in.

In spring 2019, Victor's work was juried into an international website for artists, Circle Foundation for the Arts.  He is one of their Featured Artists.  This website includes images of 5 of his paintings and a short artist statement/bio. The images were selected by the committee and some are images that have not shown anywhere in the Southwest because of their content. The Circle Foundation now represents his art and all inquiries about Victor's art (e.g., sales, exhibitions, publications, etc.) can be directed to them:  REPRESENTED@CIRCLE-ARTS.COM.

The Circle Foundation also has a video presentation called "Profiles in Contemporary Art: Discover Remarkable Art" that includes Victor's art.  See below:
















On Memorial Day, Victor received an email from the President and International Selection Committee for the Florence Biennale - XIIth Edition stating that after reviewing his art website and the body of work it contains, they have selected him to be an admitted artist to the forthcoming edition of the  International Contemporary Art Biennial of Florence.  Their website is:

This is considered one of the major Contemporary Art Exhibits in the world. Unfortunately, without a sponor(s) this show was not something he could financially do at this time.  In two years, maybe he will have a sponsor(s) and this will be possible. 


Victor's work was published in Issue 15 of Spotlight Magazine (page 84).  The magazine, available both online and in high quality print, includes a unique selection of artists from around the world working in variety of media and curated together to tell the story of what art look likes today.  The best view of this is to click on the brackets in the lower right for full screen.

The painting , Monsoon Sunset Over the Tianzi Mountains, is on page 102 in the Circle Quarterly Art Review, Fall 2019, published by the Circle Foundation.  See below.  The best view of this is to click on the brackets in the lower right for full screen.
