Bonnie Gloris is a visual artist and independent curator, originally from Albany, NY. She moved to New York City to attend Parsons the New School for Design, and graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts. She has had several solo exhibitions in Jersey City, and has participated in many group shows across the U.S. In October 2011, she was interviewed by Jersey City Magazine. Bonnie is currently on the staff of Arts Guild New Jersey, a non-profit center for the arts that presents fine art exhibitions, art classes, workshops, and other cultural events.
Stephen Chopek (aka SodaCan) lives and works as a musician and artist in Jersey City, NJ. He is a multi-instrumentalist and self-taught artist. His work explores the connections that exist in the process of creating music and visual art. Chopek's mixed media works take readily accessible materials and found objects out of their original contexts and reshape them into new compositions. As a drummer, Stephen has toured the world and recorded with Charlie Hunter, John Mayer, Marc Broussard, Jesse Malin, The Alternate Routes, and many others. He maintains a busy performing and recording schedule while spreading the word about SodaCan to new audiences.
