“…two strong entries by Mr. Chavez. What strikes me with Sean’s work is his thoughtful attention to design. Great shapes and movement through out… “Nothing Gold Can Stay” moves ahead in this category for the subtle muted color harmony and solid use of values to emphasize the poetry of the tree.” – Kim Lordier, ArtMuse April, 2016. Special congrats as well to Damien Gonzales who was selected as finalist in the Masters category. That makes two Albuquerque painters who were honored in this competition that is open to anyone internationally.
