Art Synergy has grown considerably since its inception and our volunteer staff and support has grown along with it. The organization, run by Rolando Chang Barrero and Ilene Gruber Adams, artists and advocates, holds several meetings yearly, open to the public, where we request help from the community to work with us in everything from planning, to finance hanging the shows. We look forward to another successful year and cannot thank the Lesters enough for the support they have shown us.
