Thank you to Western Art Collector for the mention and for featuring my painting, Un Punto (On Point,) in their new Fresh Paint section of the April issue.
S.M. Chavez makes a splash on the Western art scene
New Mexico painter S.M. Chavez is on the rise with his contemporary Western paintings. He’s been presenting his work since 2019, but a strong showing at the recent virtual Coors Western Art Exhibit & Sale has elevated his presence and collectors have noticed. He calls his work a “marriage of old and new,” and it frequently features cowboy, Mexican and Native American subjects. This 20-by-20-inch piece, titled En Punto (On Point), is available through Acosta-Strong Fine Art in Santa Fe, New Mexico. See more of his work at www.acostastrong.com.
