Yesterday me and the roommate went on a magical stroll through the Open Studio Tours in Jersey City. At a dilapidated art store we were advised to go see Robert Piersanti's studio, and the two of us being directionally challenged, most of the day was spent trying fruitlessly to locate it while wandering in and out of other studios.
Jersey was definitely a different vibe from the open studios I've been to in NYC. A lot of the work was located in mystery locations like basements and garages, even living rooms. Owing to Jannika's genius and with no help from me, we finally tumbled into Robert Piersanti's studio, a really cool loft filled with his campy-fun sci-fi/pop painting.
Don't you love a day that ends up in surprise burlesque? The fab Miss Saturn did three short performances rockin' hula hoops and takin names.
