Patricia Oji

I am a San Francisco Bay Area contemporary painter who works in a realistic style. I show the world from above and below, using fresh angles and points of view. I use a very limited palette of 3 secondary colors (plus white) to convey my own interpretation of familiar scenes (cityscapes) and subjects (chickens & koi).

Karina Ramirez Cortez

As a native to the Central Valley California, I was submerged in my Mexican culture from the beginning. I’ve been enamored with everything from the food, to the music as well as it’s traditions. Being born and raised in America has come with some challenges, from language barriers to cultural differences, but it’s also had many blessings. Art has been my main outlet from my earliest memories and it has allowed me to stitch the gap between my two cultures. I’ve been a Marin resident for over 15 years now and I feel very blessed to have found an embracing pocket in the North Bay that appreciates diversity not only culturally but creative-wise as well.


Showcasing an altar at Art Works Downtown is a milestone for my career as well as for my family. With that said, I would like to dedicate this altar to my family members and my ancestors whom struggled, and worked very hard to give the future generations a better life in America.

Honored & Thankful

Minna Towbin Pinger

I grew up in a family of artists in New York City and have been living and working in San Rafael since 2014. Most of my work is assemblage, combining text and image to tell a story. I am interested in teasing out the sacred moments that occur in our daily lives and finding treasures in refuse. Much of my work grows out of my journals where I document what startles or moves me in my own life and the lives of those around me.

It is an honor and delight to have the altar to my mother in the San Rafael Community celebration of Día de los Muertos.
