Visionaries and Voices is a non-profit organization that provides support, community, resources, and markets for artists with disabilities. With a location housed in our retail store, Visionaries and Voices held an open house on Friday, March 18, to celebrate their four year anniversary. Artists and enthusiasts alike gathered together over music, awards, inspiration, and community.
At the event, the artists discussed their artwork and inspiration. Artist Rob Macke, shared his collection of mixed media paintings that were inspired from a world he created from his imagination called Egatoria. He explained that Egatoria is a [medieval] world filled with magical creatures, spirits, and animals. Many other artists shared their work and were honored at the event.
V&V supports more than 130 artists in two studios, presents major exhibits in the V&V Northside Gallery and Corner Gallery, conducts Outreach services, provides job coaching for artists employed outside the studios, and is working with 22 of the most promising artists to build professional portfolios and link them to galleries all over the United States.
