I was thrilled and honored to be awarded Best of Show at the Uart Open for my painting “New Construction” by juror George Rivera.
This award was especially meaningful to me as it is the result of pushing my work to explore new possibilities.
I’d like to share George Rivera’s comment on my work.
“Congratulations Belinda! Best of Show, and very well deserved. Wait until everyone sees this work in person, and all of the award winners and the works selected for this year’s competition and exhibition. It is a very strong overall exhibition of diverse approaches,styles, statements and technical excellence.Your work Belinda just kept holding my attention and causing me to stop and reflect deeply, and wouldn’t let go. Harmony and depth throughout. Best of Show in my opinion without a doubt, congratulations”
