Art opening reception: "CAMx (Houston): Jimmy James Canales and Lee Michael Peterson"

Redbud Gallery

San Antonio based artists Jimmy James Canales and Lee Michael Peterson will participate in a two-person exhibition at Redbud Gallery as part of an exchange program facilitated by San Antonio's Contemporary Art Month (CAM), held each year during the month of March. Each year, CAM will partner with a different city for an exchange exhibition, an initiative that will raise the profile of San Antonio art and artists and bring regional, national, and international artists and curators to San Antonio.

Jimmy James Canales' Tejano culture along with the prevalence of constantly evolving technology has greatly influenced his work. Canales is best known for his performance work, but he also works in sculpture, installation, digital video, digital photography and social media.

Lee Michael Peterson's work questions the significance of the individual, and forces the individual's existence to be confronted. Peterson who just completed an ambitious series of large scale mixed media drawings takes a usually well known individual (John and Bruce Wayne, 2013) and researches the name through social media to find other persons with the same name.
