Reverie: Painting Women Through the Decades

When: Tue., Jan. 31 2017

If you’ve ever had a caricature drawn in Cleveland, it was probably by someone at Kaman’s Art Shoppes. This local staple has been owned and operated by its president Tricia Kaman for 35 years. Today, Kaman’s Art Shoppes are in over 30 major theme and amusement parks throughout the US and Canada. It is estimated that Kaman has trained more than a thousand portrait artists, who have sold more than half a million portraits, caricatures and silhouette cutouts. In addition to running this creative company, Kaman is an internationally renowned artist, with a studio on Murray Hill Road in Little Italy. Wasmer Gallery at Ursuline College celebrates the life and work of Tricia Kaman with Women in Reverie: Painting Women Through the Decades, on view through February 17. The exhibition features a collection of Kaman’s portraiture and figurative paintings from direct observation. Today, Wasmer Gallery hosts a gallery talk from 11 a.m. to noon and a portrait painting workshop with Kaman from 1 to 4 p.m. Admission to this special event is $60 per person, and includes all materials. Advance tickets are available at ursuline.edu/portrait_workshop. (Usmani)
