Of the 125 artworks entered, 71 were accepted from 53 artists by juror Dr. Mika Cho, a respected arts educator, researcher, consultant, curator, and artist of Cal State L.A. In addition, a full-color printed catalog will be available for purchase within a few days of the opening.
About the exhibition, Dr. Cho said, “As far as this jurying experience is concerned, the submitted work does not have unity of content or style. Some of the work certainly reflects the turbulent time that we have experienced since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, and individual art practices in two- and three-dimensional works with various conceptual and technical backgrounds; however, the passion in the works of these artists was palpable.”
The participating artists are:
MariBeth Baloga, Mariko Bird, Art Carrillo, Chuka Susan Chesney, Fred Chuang, Karen Chutsky Naud, Liz Crimzon, Marion Dies, Darien Donner, Rick Drobner, Karen Duckles, Lore Eckelberry, Martin Ehrlich, Mims Ellis, MaryEllen Eltgroth, Mina Ferrante, Emily Goff, Laura Henneforth, Karen Hochman Brown, Karen M Holgerson, Dorothe Horttor, Jeffry Jensen, Bernie Kane, Kyung Kim, Leah Knecht, Nora Koerber, Joanna Kos, Eileen Oda Leaf Warner LeMénager, Rosian Maize, Janet Manalo, Brian Mark, Kevin McCants, Peter McDonald, Claire Menegatti, Albert Natian, Victor Picou, Rebecca Pollack, Rhonda Raulston, Serena Refoua, Lawrence D. Rodgers, David Sikes, S. A. Smith, Daniela Soberman, Robert Michael Sullivan, Emily Suñez, Kathleen Swaydan, Matthew Tanaka, E. M.
