Kit Colman Journeys
For the month of July 1821 Gallery is proud to be exhibiting the spectacular landscape paintings of Kit Colman. In her show titled “JOURNEYS”, Colman has returned to her childhood home in Woodside California after 24 years in Texas. Journeying from her small cottage in the hills, she wanted to see the land as if for the first time, to appreciate what was in front of her without knowing what was ahead—dead branches, brambles, and all. While Woodside and the Bay Area are known for their grand vistas Colman became enthralled with the paths and details that lined the trails leading to these sweeps and views. With these paintings she has tried to see the beauty within the beauty, the parts one tends to take for granted, the sometimes coarse and imperfect perfection caught in different light and climate.
Kit Colman is a sculptor and painter, who lives, paints, and teaches in the Woodside Hills. She holds a BFA from the California College of Arts and Crafts in Oakland (now called CCA) and was in the masters program at Texas Christian University, Ft. Worth, Texas.
