Synergy is a Houston, Texas-based contemporary artists’ group that has gathered monthly for more than 15 years to share lives, objectively critique art work, and support each other on their artistic journeys. Under the name of 10+Artists and now Synergy, the group has exhibited at the Pearl Fincher Museum of Fine Arts, at Archway Gallery in Houston, and Northwoods Resh Gallery. These accomplished, award-winning artists have had numerous solo and group shows over the years, including local, national, and international exhibitions.
This show presents new ideas and directions that each artist is taking in their artistic journey. The challenge included the unusual size of the paintings, challenging each artist to take on the shape and create an interesting composition. Learn more about the artists by clicking here.
