Throwbacks come on Tuesdays next week with a new art exhibit in Jersey City by masking tape artist Kayt Hester.

Hester, who has recently made NJ.com headlines as a #HudsonCeleb and as a guest at Grumpy Cat’s birthday party in April, is best known locally for her bold, intricate art created with hand-torn masking tape.

Her upcoming fourth solo show at local art gallery and bar LITM, called “Ninety Summers Later,” brings viewers back in time to the 1920s, or 90 summers ago.

“I wanted to do a more serious show about Prohibition with historically accurate pieces but I realized it wouldn’t be as much fun and it felt like school, so I decided to do something fun with show girls and good times,” said the JC resident.

The show features showgirls, models and silent film actresses whom Hester says were some of the bravest women of their time.
