By Maureen Smullen
Citra Solv recently announced that internationally renowned artist, Victoria Pierce, has been chosen as the first place winner of the “Shades of Summer” art contest, professional division.
Citra Solv, a natural cleaning product, is also a medium used by artists to create unique collage, transfers and painting effects. Every year, Citra Solv sponsors art competitions to showcase artwork that was created using this unique product.
Pierce’s painting entitled “Reflections of Summer Rain” was selected as Grand Prize Winner. Judge Cathy Taylor commented on Ms. Pierce’s winning submission: “The sense of rhythm is wonderful. Colors are carried beautifully through the composition leading the viewer’s eye. There are quiet places of rest and exciting passages of movement. Lovely piece.”
Victoria’s prize-winning artwork can be seen at Gallery CSEIS in La Fábrica Aurora, San Miguel de Allende, Mexico and in several personal collections internationally. Her work may be viewed online: http://victoriasartwork.blogspot.mx/.
