Our vision is to empower and inspire the creative community
Visionary Heights is built around creating a community that empowers musical and visual artists. We want our community to feel safe and secure and recognize the role Visionary Heights has in protecting Houston from getting and spreading the COVID-19 virus. That is why we are canceling all our events through April 15th. This includes:
- The Gatherin – Sunday, March 14th (tomorrow)
- The Heather Pierson Trio – Saturday, March 21st
- Poetry Across Houston Monthly Workshop – Sunday, March 22nd (already canceled)
- Keith Rea – Saturday, April 4th.
These cancellations create financial hardship for the musicians and visual artists we serve. Look for our announcements and posts on ways you can support the talented musicians you love. Together, we can keep the music and art flowing!
For more information, please contact Jeannette Waldie at VisionaryHeights@gmail.com or call 713-505-1998.
What is Visionary Heights?
Visionary Heights is a listening room, art gallery, and community space for artists and musicians, and all of us who are fans of music or visual art. We are:
- One of the few true Listening Rooms in Houston that offers regular concerts that are affordable
- A art gallery that features work by talented new artists and mentoring them, while providing affordable original art to the public.
Our vision is to empower amateur, aspiring and professional artists and musicians to succeed in their craft. Through events, programs and education, we work to inspire our creative community to take their expression to the next level of success and enjoyment.
For five years we have helped artists and musicians collaborate, find their voice, and learn their passion makes a difference in this world! Help us continue being a space for creative expressions for the next five years!
An Artist’s Vision
“This is a place we can come and share our true art and the things that come from our hearts and our minds and our guts. This is a place where we cannot just share it, but collaborate and add to each other’s art, songs, stories and poems. It is the most important thing for an artist to have a place to like that. That is why Visionary Heights matters to Houston.”
RyanAdam Wells, Alternative Country Singer Songwriter & Vaudeville Comedian
