Unit B (Gallery), Redbud Gallery and Contemporary Art Month proudly presents CAMx (Houston): Triple Treat on view at Unit B March 16 – May 4, 2013.

Houston based multimedia artists Arianne Roesch, Emily Sloan, and Kaneem Smith will participate in Triple Treat at Unit B as part of the CAMx activities to be held in San Antonio, Texas during Contemporary Art Month.  The show is curated by Gus Kopriva as a part of an exchange exhibition between Unit B and Houston’s Redbud Gallery. 

Artist Ariane Roesch's work mixes a blend of humanity and technology, utilizing luminescent light wires, felt sculptures, or idyllic landscapes modified by human presence. Her works are both playful, yet dark in nature and always invoke numerous questions on the part of the viewer. 

Sculptor and performance artist Emily Sloan works with any media creating temporary pieces such as Funeral Party for the Living where the public reads their own eulogies or major permanent sculptures like Burning House in East Texas or Sabine Street Bridge large street lamps constructed of lamp shades. 

Kaneem Smith's makes sculptures constructed of fabric and coated with various surface treatments. Burlap is a favorite material and is used by Kaneem to address both social and historical topics of contention. She is not afraid to depict the controversial ills of our world.

Contemporary Art Month is excited to introduce its inaugural annual exhibition CAMx.  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.

Unit B will curate an exhibition of San Antonio artists at Redbud Gallery in Houston July 6-28, 2013 as part of the CAMx (Houston) exchange.
