HOUSTON CHRONICLE: THREE ART EXHIBITS TRY TO MAKE SENSE OF A DIFFICULT YEAR
Dimmitt Contemporary Art is also just a few weeks from closing “SHIFT,” an exhibition with a title that, like “Fresh and Contemporary,” speaks to looking for a new start after a horrible year. For “SHIFT” Dimmitt assembled works by 15 women. The stylistic breadth on display is great, but there emerges among the pieces a bright cohesion. A wispy melancholy intermingles with nostalgia in Melissa Chandon’s “Barn With Turquoise and Green.” Like her paintings of swimming pools (but never swimmers), the canvas finds a notable mid-20th century mood that counterbalances that era’s optimism with a sense of solitude.

A Martini Moment with Donald Martiny
Best known for his ‘frozen’ brushstrokes, Donald Martiny’s large scale abstractions manage to be both sculptural and painterly, while somehow effecting the action of performance art. It is no wonder then that Open, Martiny’s latest solo exhibition on view till January 2nd at the Dimmitt Contemporary Art in Houston, continues the artist’s exploration of the "gesture," which is made to exist forever in the present.

I first saw her art in my friend’s home. My friend referred me to Dimmitt Art, an art gallery in Houston, where I discovered the artist’s name. I like how her paintings draw your eye in with the depth she creates.
