Though the coronavirus has forced most of us into isolation, The Arts at St. Paul & Incarnation (ASPI) invited the artists of Jersey City and the surrounding communities to try collaboration. For this virtual group show, artists were invited to submit their names to be randomly paired with another artist. Each pair then collaborated on a work of art inspired by the theme.
The theme for the first Shared Madness event was “UpRooted”. We selected this theme because for most of us, the pandemic has turned our worlds topsy-turvy. We are all affected in one way or another, some drastically and others more subtly.
Here is list of the artist pairings:
° Beth Bentley & Karen Carattini
° Rochelle Fox & Donchellee Fulwood
° Nanette Reynolds Beachner & Janhavi Firke
° Charles Lane & Seth Friedman
° Lillian Bustle & Anna Kasperowitz
° Olivia Wilber & Amy Neufeld
