Fri 1/13 @ 5-8PM
Anyone who has cruised through the Murray Hill Schoolhouse during an art walk in Little Italy will undoubtedly recall the striking portraiture of painter Tricia Kaman who has had her studio in the building for decades. She captures people’s humanity and individualism with a singular warmth.
One of her interests for 40 years has been capturing women in their quiet, reflective moments. “Working with live models allows me to witness the beauty of the human form and the divine element of the human soul,” she says,
Her solo exhibition, Women in Reverie: Painting Women Through the Decades, at Ursuline College’s Wasmer Gallery, will give viewers the chance to eavesdrop, as it were, on a multitude of women. It opens with a reception Fri 1/13 @ 5-8pm and remains on view though Fri 2/17. Kaman will give a gallery talk Sat 1/31 @ 11am-noon and host a portrait workshop from 1-4pm that same day.
