Orin Carpenter is a mixed media artist who uses collage to visually portray a story based on the African-American plight in America. Using images from the Civil rights movement until now, mixed media helps him create the energy needed to depict stories that allow the viewer to see beyond their normal view of the world.
Evri Kwong is a San Francisco based Artist. Received his BFA and MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute and a full fellowship to Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture. Kwong’s drawings and paintings dismantle the "candy-coated" America we all grow up in. In his bold narratives, he shines a light on issues of race, income disparity, Covid-19, LGBTQ, voting rights, lynchings, standing rock, immigration, Japanese concentration camps, and other concerning topics. His work has been exhibited in Galleries and Museums around the country and abroad.
Rupy C. Tut is an Oakland based painter dissecting historical and contemporary displacement narratives around identity, belonging, and gender. Her work engages in strict practice of traditional materials and methodology associated with Indian miniature painting as she continues to add contemporary images and characters to a centuries-old visual language.
Timothy Anglin Burgard is The Distinguished Senior Curator and Curator-in-Charge of American Art for the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, where he designed the 2005 reinstallation of the new de Young Museum's permanent collection of American art.
