Causey Contemporary

Mission and History



Causey Contemporary cultivates and represents contemporary artists from their emergence through their maturity. We are dedicated to helping collectors understand and enjoy their artworks within historical, cultural and social contexts. Our mission is to nourish dialogue and relationships between artists, collectors and curators. We strive to provide a multilayered platform for each artist’s individual voice, and to help that voice be heard by new and seasoned collectors alike.

About the Gallery:

Causey Contemporary represents exquisite technically and conceptually challenging art.  The gallery exhibits the work of its core group of 13 artists in 11 shows annually, in addition to hosting special exhibitions by other critically recognized artists.  Causey Contemporary participates in two or more international art fairs annually and also organizes international touring exhibitions.

Causey Contemporary and its artists have been covered in Artnews, Artforum, The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, and multiple other art and culture publications.  Gallery artists are included in the collections of MoMA, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston and other institutions throughout the world.

Causey Contemporary was established in 1999 as Ch’i Contemporary Fine Art.  Founder and Director Tracy Causey-Jeffery changed the name in September 2009 to commemorate the gallery’s expansion and its tenth anniversary.
