Hermetic and deeply personal, Bill Jenkins’s objects straddle the zone between sculpture and drawing, resembling relics unearthed from a forgotten landscape. Often restricting himself to a set of parameters, Jenkins finds limitations far more rewarding than being faced with too many choices. Jenkins received his BFA from the San Francisco Art Institute, and his MFA from UC Berkeley.

Ken Lo received his MFA from UC Berkeley in 2006, and his BA in Philosophy of Religion from SF State in 2003. Despite injuries to his knee as a high school phenom, Ken Lo shunned basketball scholarships to Division I universities, and a array lucrative of shoe deals, to pursue his studies in the fine arts at the esteemed Academy of Art College. A life-long Lakers fan, he will be trying out, this summer–barring another injury– to make the team roster in time to play alongside his friend Kobe Bryant in the upcoming NBA summer league. He is currently filming commercials with other basketball legends for T-Mobile.
