Christopher Cascio is a painter based in Houston, TX who works with mixed media and explores themes of obsession, compulsion and ritual. He is no longer emerging and not quite at mid-career, and is a graduate of HSPVA (’95), the San Francisco Art Institute (BFA, ’99) and the University of Houston (MFA, ’13). Cascio has shown extensively at Cardoza Fine Arts, Front Gallery, Blaffer Museum, Diverseworks and Lawndale Art Center in Houston, New Image Art and CalArts in Los Angeles, UTSA Satellite Gallery in San Antonio and The Luggage Store, Partisan Gallery, Artists Television Access and ArtPad in San Francisco. In 2014 he was included in the Contemporary Art Museum’s 65th anniversary show Outside the Lines. Cascio is represented by Devin Borden Gallery.

A Kickstarter campaign was launched by The McKinney Avenue Contemporary in preparation for the exhibit and successfully raised $1,500!

In support of Cascio’s exhibition Current Obsessions, the Kickstarter campaign supported:

  • artist travel expenses
  • artist’s accommodations
  • exhibition documentation
  • installation expense

Supporters who donated $50 or more received a ticket to the private VIP Reception to meet Christopher Cascio on Saturday, November 15.

Our goal was $1,500.
