Powerpop Trio Opening Reception: Hester.Piersanti.Waks

  • 140 Newark Avenue jersey city, nj United States (map)

This August, LITM brings three of Jersey City's biggest names in the art scene into one powerful show. The Powerpop Trio is Kayt Hester, Robert Piersanti, and Joe Waks. Each artist will be showing new pieces in the signature styles and mediums they are known for. Hester searches for beauty in the everyday mundane with her bold, stark pieces created with torn bits of masking tape. 
Piersanti draws upon a lifetime fascination with 50's and 60's pop culture featuring Jersey City locals as subjects. His paintings have evolved into a visual diary of the people and events in his life. 
Waks tempers reality (America’s faded grandeur and current status as a junkie desperately fixing for cheap Chinese-made smart phones) with a heapin’ helpin’ of humor, a super-sized serving of irony and a couple of squirts of hope. His art is a commentary on our absurd, interconnected world. 
$6 Drink Specials all night
Light Refreshments will be served. 
Full Dinner Menu and Bar available.
