About JoMar Visions:
JoMar Visions spanned their areas of service from photography, graphic design, fine art representation of the founders' fine art, Joana Esteves and Mark Roden; growing quickly to other areas of supporting the Houston Art Community and giving chances to artists that otherwise might find difficult to find venues to exhibit their works. The hosting of art events and representation and support of other artists started with Houston ArtCrawl 2010 as part of Hardy & Nance Studios, jump starting the many incredible events that JoMar Visions enthusiastically continues to organize, focusing on other hidden emerging talents and also well known established names within the community.
JoMar Visions was awarded Best Art Gallery in 2014 and in 2015 by the A-list voters and in 2016 was awarded by voteforus.com as top rated Photographer and Art Gallery in Houston, through Facebook ratings and reviews.
"There is nothing that gives us more pleasure than giving the opportunity to other artists to have their works of art on the walls for the public to see and buy. And every time an artist makes a sale is a true thrill and a sense of accomplishment that cannot be put into words. We feel just as excited as when we sell our own work. We believe that being artists ourselves and by feeling the artists obstacles and difficulties, we can get closer to their needs and work together with them towards success. We are positive people and we think that that kind of energy is felt by anyone that works with us. We wnat that to be felt, we want excitement and joy in what we do and we believe that that positive energy and focus is what gets things going. We are here to have fun and be happy in what we do, and to 'infect' other people with that fun and happiness as well which, we believe, results in everyone's success."
