Shogun Shido is a self-taught multi-disciplinary artist with a passion for the reclamation of ancestral identity, healing through creative expression, and storytelling through abstract design all orbiting the activation of the 6 senses.

Derrick Bell is a Cincinnati, Ohio native and Oakland-based fine artist, educator, entrepreneur, and philanthropist. His work is thought-provoking and capable of arousing strong emotions that cut across ethnic, national, and generational barriers. The artistic renderings convey a deep sense of emotion, spirituality, dignity, history, strength, and grace. Bell’s works are inspired by his personal journey through life, music, nature, and spiritual beliefs that transcend race and creed. Bell’s mission is to impact the world with his creative expressions. It is through this creative energy and passion that he seeks to evoke emotions and motivate the viewer.

Cynthia Brannvall is a California native of African American and Swedish descent. A multi-media artist and art historian, she received undergraduate degrees in Art Practice and Art History from UC Berkeley and an MA in Art History from San Francisco State University. Cynthia’s artwork explores identity formation envisioned in an imagined deep time terrain of memory, reclamation, and the geographies of forced and voluntary migrations. Her artwork has been selected for juried group exhibitions in Berkeley, San Francisco, Santa Cruz, San Rafael, Palo Alto, San Luis Obispo, and Los Angeles. She teaches Art History in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Lorraine Bonner was born and raised on the East Coast. She moved to California in 1970 and began working in clay in the early ’90s. Her work began in response to trauma but soon evolved to embrace the larger political and spiritual themes of dominationism and the mutually reflective processes of the political and personal.
