‘Divided Art Project’

Collaborations between artists can be difficult. With the amount of time, energy and thought an artist puts into creating a piece of art, there is a tendency to treat the work like a newborn child. Handing it off for another person to raise can be a stressful situation. In the “Divided Art Project,” strangers, friends and spouses work together to show how these partnerships can produce a show that is a fantastic testament to collaboration. Whether it is a painting, a piece of sculpture or fine jewelry, each creation looks like it could have been crafted by the same hand. It’s a testament to what can happen when ego is put to the side and art is allowed to grow.
