Tiffin University’s Diane Kidd Gallery will host “From Norway Pond,” an exhibition of watercolor paintings by Diane Kidd from March 30 through May 6, 2022. An opening reception will be held Thursday March 31 from 5:30 to 7 p.m. and light refreshments will be served. This event is free and open to the community.
Kidd earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from Beaver College (now Arcadia University) where she studied painting and printmaking with Benton Spruance and John Hathaway. Years later while living in Ohio, she had the opportunity to study watercolor painting with John Cook of Toledo, Ohio. While living in Ohio she continued to paint and worked as a graphic artist for Tiffin University. She founded and managed the original Tiffin University Art Gallery in Franks Hall in 1994. From her initial vision to expose the students to art and to artists, the gallery has grown to become the spacious Diane Kidd Art Gallery in the Hayes Center for the Arts.
After her retirement, Kidd moved with her husband, George to the Monadnock Mountain region of New Hampshire. She is a member of the Monadnock Friends of the Dublin Art Community and participates in the annual Open Studio Tour. Kidd also exhibits her work in other regional exhibitions.
According to Kidd, “I paint what I like and hope others will share my enthusiasm. I view the world as a series of potential paintings; always looking for that special piece of paradise. Painting is what I do. It is my reason for being.”
