Montclair Through An Artist’s Lens


Karen Kaplowitz is an outer-Baristaville artist (Westfield) whose loves include jazz and photography. When our Barista-in-Chief, Debbie Galant, asked her to turn her eye on Montclair’s beautiful old buildings and elegant, eclectic sights, Kaplowitz was delighted to comply.

After photographing the images, Kaplowitz uses her skill and her imagination to transform the digital files into highly graphic yet still quite literal depictions. Here are the beautiful results.

    I assume Bristaville is Bloomfield, Glen Ridge & Montclair. Am I correct,
    or are there other towns included? Verona?
    Very neat and original art !!
