At our 2018 annual fundraiser, Art in the Dark, we renewed our commitment and announced our new name. Our registered 501(c)3 Federal non-profit is titled South End Seattle Arts Center, and we are doing business as ReVision Arts. We remain an inclusive art-education organization in South Seattle. Our mission is Art for ALL!, with a focus on artists with all types of disabling conditions and others who consider themselves underrepresented.

Peter Horan is a fine art and landscape photographer living in Portland, OR. He has studied under a wide range of photographers and attended workshops with Jim Stimson, Seth Hamel, Jack Graham, Guy Tal, Gavriel Jecan and Sean Fitzgerald.

“My goal is to use light and lines and space and color to share what I feel while I am at a particular place at a particular time. I find amazing and interesting things both in spectacular natural places and walking down the street in daily life.”

Peter’s work has appeared in Sierra Magazine and on the Sierra Club website.

“Nothing is less real than realism. Details are confusing. It is only by selection, by elimination, by emphasis, that we get at the real meaning of things.”
— Georgia O’Keeffe
