The mission of the Center for Contemporary Arts is to encourage, empower and inspire artists, children and the community through the arts. The Center for Contemporary Arts, a 501 (c) (3) corporation, was founded in 1989. The Center's exhibits and community education programs serve over 26,000 individuals annually. By offering free admission to all exhibits, the Center serves a broad cross-section of the community, reaching individuals of a variety of ages, ethnicities and socio-economic backgrounds. While we are proud of the quality and variety of the Center's exhibits, we recognize that providing an enriching and educational experience for gallery visitors requires more than hanging art on the walls. As our gallery offerings have grown, so have our efforts to make the Center more accessible to the broad demographic served by our programs. The Center currently has more than 60 artist members and rents ten artist studios. Five galleries, one devoted to photography, present more than 20 different admission-free exhibits of regional art, international photography, and award-winning short films to more than 26,000 individuals each year.

It is with great excitement that we announce our name change from John Cleary Gallery to Catherine Couturier Gallery. In the last four years, the gallery has evolved to embrace both that which John Cleary and I both loved (mid-century French street photography and portraits of children, to name two) and more contemporary art that was always my area of expertise. The range of work represented is broader, and my eye is apparent on every wall and in every bin. It is now very much Catherine Couturier Gallery, and I am proud to put my name on this group of artists and these works of art.
The primary goal of the Deborah Colton Gallery is the creation of a continually evolving innovative showcase for the ongoing presentation and international promotion of strong historical and visionary contemporary artists worldwide. While living in Asia for eight years, Deborah Colton's first emanation was a virtual gallery, starting in 1998, whose main focus was to create an awareness and appreciation for the multi-media talents of artists from Thailand, Japan, China and throughout Asia.
Moving to Houston in 2000 after living in Tokyo and Bangkok, Deborah Colton first curated and presented several public space exhibitions in conjunction with many prestigious art non-profits both from the United States and Asia. The Deborah Colton Gallery opened FotoFest of 2004 and since then has been continually presenting significant national and international contemporary art exhibitions. As part of the Gallery's continued aspiration to provide a visual forum which connects both national and international artists to create an awareness and help make positive social change, the Deborah Colton Gallery has focused on many key cities, including having been an exhibitor in the first Art Fair in Abu Dhabi in November of 2007. In 2008 Deborah Colton Gallery debuted the exhibition titled Qatar Narratives consisting of contemporary artists from Qatar in conjunction with Consular Forum 2008, honoring the Kingdom of Qatar. In 2009 the Gallery similarly honored Spain and in 2010, Mexico. During FotoFest 2012, the Deborah Colton Gallery focused on Russia, which included important exhibitions on both Olga Tobreluts and Oleg Dou. This emphasis encompasses a wider scope for the expansion of the diversities of international artists and concerns.
In addition to the Gallery's stable of artists, Deborah Colton Gallery provides consultative services both nationally and internationally to individuals, corporations and institutions so they can start to acquire specific works through a comprehensive program of collecting. Exhibitions highlight only the most provocative and relevant contemporary artists, whose diverse practices include paintings, works on paper, sculpture, video, photography, performance, conceptual future media and public space installations.
