Ninety Summers Later – New Art Work By Kayt Hester
Renowned Jersey City Artist Returns With Her Latest Groundbreaking Solo Show
Jersey City, NJ, July 29, 2014 – Kayt Hester returns with her fourth solo show at Jersey City’s LITM: “Ninety Summers Later” features portraits of the decadent models, actresses and showgirls of the 1920s. Her striking black and white compositions are accented with subtle hints and bold splashes of color, all created in Hester’s signature medium: hand-torn masking tape.
When asked about her inspiration for the show, Hester replied, “I was captivated by the glamour and decadence of the early 1920’s as evident in the flappers and showgirls of the period. The pinup girls, the gangsters and Prohibition really all set the scene for what I wanted to bring to my show.”
“Ninety Summers Later” will debut on Tuesday, August 5th, 2014 from 7pm until closing at LITM, and will run until the end of August. LITM is located at 142 Jersey Avenue in Downtown Jersey City. A percentage of proceeds from this show will benefit the Hudson County Animal League, The Companion Animal Trust, and The Fussy Friends Cat Adoptions.
