From ICOSA Collective:
“ICOSA Collective is proud to present Elements of Expression a group exhibition curated by Raasin Mcintosh.
Elements of Expression is the first phase of an art exchange between Clamp Light Studios, an art collective based in San Antonio, Texas and ICOSA collective of Austin. Selected by Raasin Mcintosh, the exhibition introduces Austin to the 9 members of Clamp Light. In turn, Clamp Light will be presenting the work of ICOSA collective’s 20 members in San Antonio in August of 2021. The first exhibition of this two-city art exchange is comprised of a diverse range of works from: Xavier Gilmore, Taylor Galvan, Sarah Fox, Sara Corley Martinez, Raul Rene Gonzalez, Randy Guthmiller, Jacqueline Ramirez, Cassie Gnehm, Ursula Zavala. While close to 100 miles separate the two artist collectives, the common goal to support their fellow artists and share their community’s creative output brings them together.
“Infinite autonomy equals infinite possibilities of expression. Through the artist lens, you see endless creative expressions communicated through concrete, graphite, clay, dust, wood, cotton, embroidery, digital print, and mixd media masterpieces. The creation is ongoing, it is endless, it is happening in every moment.”
– Raasin Mcintosh
