Circle Foundation for the Arts
Since the beginning of 2019, I have received a number of distinct and very special honors that I have shared on my FaceBook page, but some I have failed to share here. These will also soon be incorporated into an updated version of my Resume, Etc. page.
To begin the year, 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 the spring, 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 his art.
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: https://www.florencebiennale.org/en/
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 has also been 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 magazine is fully available online at: https://circle-arts.com/spotlight-15/
The painting , Monsoon Sunset Over the Tianzi Mountains, will be published in the next Circle Quarterly Review published by the Circle Foundation. Once it is published a link will be added here.
It has been a blessed year thus far! Thank you!
