On exhibit at Central Library, November – December 2017.
Kathleen Gilman’s Artist statement:
Due to my love of the outdoors, I have been painting landscapes since 2006 and find myself especially attracted to water. I found my artist’s voice more than a decade ago working in pastel and acrylic paint when I began painting the north Shore of Lake Superior and shortly thereafter the coast of Maine. Since then, I’ve broadened my subject matter to include what I find locally (Virginia) and while traveling. I’ve also returned to oil – a media I explored in college and sometimes work en plein air. Themes in my work continue to evolve from my quotidian outdoor walks, from my youth spent in New England, and current explorations near and far.
