FORT LEE, N.J. -- Fort Lee resident Jane Sklar will be exhibiting her unique re-creations of photographs in the Fort Lee Library gallery throughout June.
Sklar is a Cornell University graduate and a multiple award-winning artist and photographer. She was born and raised in New York City, and currently has her studio in Fort Lee.
Together with her teacher and mentor, Max Cartagena, Sklar has perfected a unique style of transforming her original photographs into dazzling digital creations, using a handful of older photo editing and graphics programs -- without using Photoshop.
Sklar has shown her work in the Edward Hopper House in Nyack, and a variety of galleries and juried art shows in the tri-state area. She has won back-to-back mixed media awards at the Washington Square Outdoor art shows in 2015 in NYC for two art pieces embedded in aluminum. She continues to expand her showings, competitions and techniques.
