I was a member of Visual Arts Alliance during the1990’s when I lived in Houston. I participated in many exhibits, even won an award! Those were the days of paper newsletters and I was the VAA newsletter editor for a while. After moving to San Antonio in 1999 I let my membership expire. My experiences with VAA were rich and memorable so recently when I decided to start exhibiting again I looked VAA up online. Wow- Visual Arts Alliance has grown into an even more exciting and dynamic arts organization. I look forward to participating as a “distance” member!
