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 and China 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 now being an exhibitor in the first Art Fair in Abu Dhabi 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. This emphasis encompasses a wider scope for the expansion of the diversities of international artists and concerns.
Exhibitions highlight only the most provocative and relevant contemporary artists, whose diverse practices include paintings, works on paper, sculpture, video, photography, performance and conceptual future media installations.
