Jessalyn Aaland is a Bay Area interdisciplinary artist working across social practice, painting, print, and sculpture. Her work often touches upon complex social issues, but with a sense of humor, hope, and joy. Much of her work explores how systems (such as the K-12 education system) function as sites for both conformity and resistance, and conveys the possibility that a more utopian society is not unreachable. Her socially-engaged projects address public audiences of everyday people (e.g. youth, teachers, workers), and often take the form of workshops and Risograph-printed posters and booklets. Aaland’s project Class Set has provided 20,000 Risograph-printed, artist-designed posters featuring social justice quotes to schools, libraries, and educational non-profits nationwide, and the designs and accompanying curriculum are available for anyone to download online for free. Her work has been supported with funding from Southern Exposure, Portland Institute for Contemporary Art, and the San Francisco Arts Commission. She has been an artist-in-residence at Facebook (Menlo Park), Real Time & Space (Oakland, CA), North Mountain (West Virginia), and Sim (Reykjavik, Iceland), and was a 2018-2019 Political Power fellow at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco.

Contextualizing himself as a “cultural worker,” Oropeza uses the broadness of this term to encompass his work as an artist, curator, gallery co-owner, and museum employee, while simultaneously honoring the visible and invisible labor that is required of these endeavors. This emphasis is poetically expressed in Oropeza’s recent series of paintings and murals, Whatever the Work May Be, which lovingly depicts tools and materials associated with laborers, subtly calling attention to their pivotal role within the cultural ecosystem.

Location: The CIA at Copia Theater, 500 First Street, Napa, CA

Artist Biography

Sandra Ono’s sculptural work is informed by biology and physiology. Her choice of materials and forms arise from interests in the consequences of what we consume, and inversely, what consumes us. She frequently employs synthetic and ubiquitous, utilitarian products such as plastic bags, re-contextualizing these materials to create non-functioning, organic and corporeal forms which examine experiences of the human body, granting dimension to internal states.
