Jealously Curated is a collection of work by East Coast artists who all have one thing in common: they have all been featured on Danielle Krysa’s wildly popular blog, The Jealous Curator. For the first time on the East Coast, alums of the blog have organized a show at Voltage Art and Coffee to share their latest work—and to celebrate the blog that inspired and brought them together.
The Jealous Curator was launched in February 2009 as a place for Danielle Krysa to share artwork that “made her jealous”-—in a bad, toxic, soul-crushing way. Danielle stopped in her tracks every time she saw work that she loved. But now, more than six years later, that jealousy has turned magically, wonderfully, and thankfully into inspiration. She has realized that jealousy
can actually be turned completely on its head and used as fuel to get back into the studio. It can only stop you if you let it. That’s when the magic transformation from jealousy to inspiration truly starts to happen.
