The Contemporary Arts Museum Houston is pleased to present three simultaneous solo exhibitions by Houston-based artists Amy Blakemore, Thedra Cullar-Ledford, and Susie Rosmarin. The presentations are part of the museum's ongoing series Right Here, Right Now, which celebrates our region's vibrant creative community. Its second iteration showcases the work of three Houston-based artists with decades-long practices here. CAMH's Director Bill Arning, Senior Curator Valerie Cassel Oliver, and Curator Dean Daderko respectively selected Cullar-Ledford, Rosmarin, and Blakemore.
Blakemore's, Cullar-Ledford's, and Rosmarin's works are visually and conceptually diverse. These artists create moodily poetic photographs, wry and confrontational figurative paintings, and vivid, optically luscious abstractions.
"We know that Houston is a great place for young artists to be based while establishing their practices--a fact we highlighted in the first edition of Right Here, Right Now in 2014. For this second edition, we considered artists who have been long-time contributors to our city's cultural landscape and have established important practices here" says Bill Arning, Director. "We found first-rate artists whose work had blossomed in Houston's rich cultural ecosystem, and this exhibition highlights work by three of them."
