Seeing Art San Antonio offers artists’ studio and gallery visits in San Antonio’s nationally recognized contemporary art community.
Seeing Art San Antonio is led by Donna Simon who is uniquely qualified as a guide and facilitator. Donna has been involved in the San Antonio art community for many years as a painter, founding board member of SAY Si, a Kronkosky Fellow at the McNay Art Museum, retired art teacher, and lecturer for the Contemporary Art Appreciation classes at the Chautauqua Institute in upstate New York. Donna is a dedicated supporter of creative talent in San Antonio and is eager to share her knowledge and enthusiasm for the contemporary art scene in San Antonio, Texas.
Seeing Art San Antonio will introduce you to top artists, as well as emerging talents. Our events are a series of studio visits where participants meet and talk with the artists about their work, their creative processes and what influences and inspires their art-making. Informative, insightful and inspirational, Seeing Art San Antonio events mean time well spent.
