went on to work as Director of Art at a local private design firm, managing
large (over 40 artists per project) public art projects for national
healthcare facilities. In 2003, she established her own art consulting
business and later that year, she, with three colleagues, founded Synergy
Art Foundation. She is currently active in an ambitious community arts
project to establish a permanent arts district in Barrio Logan/East
#1 What is your highlight Visual art experience from the last year?
"The most impressive arts experience for me was Jen
Trute's collection exhibited at the
W. D. Cannon Art Gallery Juried Biennial 2007. Jen's classical technique
is magnificent and her content is visionary. Her message confronts environmental
issues head-on, most often in a surrealist style. She is truly a great
painter, way ahead of her time."
#2 What is your vision of the future of the Visual arts for San Diego?
#2 "Through Synergy Art Foundation's Barrio Logan/East Village
Arts District (Believe Project), we hope to provide local artists with
work/live spaces, a cultural center, exhibition/workshop space, and
the ability to unify and support our visual arts community. The ultimate
goal is to establish San Diego as a vital international cultural destination."
