For sculptor JinMan Jo, the process of creating his metal works reflects the complexities of life. Thick steel bends during forging and hammering. Thin wires worked together show interconnectedness, and weak materials, overlapping and supporting each other, become strong. Each piece makes an undeniable contribution to the whole. Working slowly and steadily, almost ceremoniously, JinMan Jo believes creating and viewing art are times of deep reflection. His work has been shown widely throughout the United States and Korea.

Cavallo, a professional artist living in New Jersey, creates dramatic, large-scale watercolors focusing on the figure. His work explores issues of human rights and champions individual voice. Exhibited works include those from his Comfort Women series, exploring the tragedy and resilience of women, many of whom were Korean, forced into sexual slavery during WWII. In conjunction with the Year of South Korea.
