Visions 10
http://visions10.com/

Visions 10, an alliance of ten Texas Hill Country artists, began meeting monthly in 1994 to critique their work, share their expertise, and improve their art. All have experienced artistic growth in this supportive, motivating environment. Members of Visions 10 share a common enthusiasm for life and the world around them, a zest reflected in their art. They are creative in using the visual stimulation around them to produce exciting, innovative artwork. Common interests and goals do not lead to commonality in the members’ art. They have wide diversity in media, style and subject matter. Several members focus on exploratory and experimental art. Others employ more traditional methods using an array of subjects and techniques. View the varied Visions 10 artwork and enjoy.
