Curated by Sarah Castillo, the latest exhibition at Clamp Light Artist Studios and Gallery features six Texan artists whose "trajectories of contextual and material choices that all work to address personal questions that are captivating and spatial in their art form." The exhibition, which opens Friday June 14, will feature installations crafted from a variety of mediums by Ana Lucia Carbajal, Audrya Flores, Carly Garza, Laura Latimer, Abby Sherrill and Jasmine Zelaya, each of whom applied to Clamp Light's 2019 open call for artists.

varied yet complementary installations investigate identity, familial and ecological roots, human connection to natural and manmade relics, symbiotic relationships and how to confront and release stress and fear in the modern world.

"I thought it would be great to present this group together for their various but similar trajectories of contextual and material choices that all work to address personal questions that are captivating and spatial in their art form," Castillo says. "I appreciate the diverse, but yet connected queries — symbiotic relationships, ecofeminism, cognitive development and fear, embodiment in identity politics, the sacred in manmade and natural environments and familial oppressions."

The exhibition will remain on view by appointment through July 6.



Free, 7-10 p.m. Friday, June 14, Clamp Light Artist Studios & Gallery, 1704 Blanco Rd., clamplightsa.com
