Carol Measom: Fearless

Sawyer Yards is proud to announce Fearless, a solo exhibition of abstract paintings by Houston artist Carol Measom. The exhibition is on view July 1 through 31 in the Bay 300 Gallery of the Silos at Sawyer Yards studio building.  Measom writes of her work:

"Being largely a self taught artist, I've always painted with nothing restricting my methods and process. You might say I'm undisciplined and you wouldn't be wrong. Since I didn't know what to expect from myself when I started down this art path, I've always been jumping into any new thing with no fear
of failure. Every day is a journey of experimentation in colors and strokes. When painting abstracts what I lay on the canvas is typically not planned. Sometimes figures will emerge from those expressionist shapes. In the past I have done graphic design so I've always had a love for color and type. I think this is why I have had the desire to paint pop art and lately I have delved my brain into those flat but colorful people. I hope you enjoy my "Fearless" exhibition."

A native Houstonian, Measom currently divides her time between Houston and Coeur d'Alene, Idaho. She previously spent half of each year in Los Cabos, Mexico. Travel and life in various environments has been the inspiration of her art. After a career in marketing and design, she took up painting in 2013. Today, she is a full-fledged artist whose artwork is currently featured in monthly public shows in both Houston and Coeur d’Alene, as well as in galleries, design centers and private collections in Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Idaho, Illinois, Tennessee, Texas, Utah and Mexico. You can visit Measom at her studio, #120 at the Silos at Sawyer Yards studio building.
