The Schenectady Jewish Community Center recently showcased the works of mixed media abstract painter Amy Hauer, who grew up in the Greater New Haven area.
Growing up in Madison and Orange, Hauer attended JCC Day Camps and worked as a counselor there and also taught pre-school at the JCC.
Hauer, who holds a degree in studio art/graphic design from Southern Connecticut State University, is also the daughter of George Hauer, Shalom New Haven’s Advertising Sales Manager.
In her artwork, Hauer explores a variety of techniques and processes, including using resin, acrylic fluid inks, tints and pigments, glass pieces, markers, pens and household paint. She also writes, designs and illustrates children’s books.
Hauer is a member of Congregation Agudat Achim in Schenectady and lives in the Albany area with her husband and three daughters.
