Richard Kathmann, the peripatetic, always comes home. Home to the family farm and the woods in the western Catskills. From Brooklyn, Chicago, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Medellin Columbia, Georgia, New Hampshire and Maine. From street theater to Tamarind’s litho workshop, large scale drawings and intimate paintings, Richard’s marks are like musical notation; nature’s song, observed, abstracted, embraced and very personal. If you can imagine Lois Dodd on one shoulder and Jake Berthot on the other. Richard seems from the East, a green sage, an angel perhaps.

His landscape drawing and painting were exhibited at Mohawk-Hudson Artists 2010 at The Hyde Collection (Glens Falls) and Mohawk-Hudson Artists 2011 at The Albany Institute of History and Art. In June 2012 he took part in the renowned painting marathon, “Arbor Vitae,” at Old Westbury Garden, presented by the New York Studio School of Drawing, Painting, and Sculpture.
Kathmann trained at the University of Chicago, The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and Pratt Institute.
He currently lives in his saphouse studio on the dairy farm, no longer active, in the northwest Catskills that he grew up on. He gives plein air and studio instruction in landscape drawing and painting.
