Kit Palencar

Born in Fairview Park, Ohio in 1992, Kit Palencar currently resides in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, and has received a Masters of Fine Arts degree from Kent State University in the spring of 2018 with a major in painting and drawing.

Graduating from the University of Akron in 2016 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, Palencar was awarded the top-honor scholarship at the Myers School of Art as well as receiving an additional private scholarship for his watercolors through the Frederic Whitaker and Eileen Monaghan Whitaker Foundation.

Having exhibited in galleries across Northeast Ohio and collectors ranging from around the globe, Palencar has taught foundation drawing and life drawing courses at The University of Akron, Kent State University, and several painting & drawing courses at the Canton Museum of Art for the last six years. As with his expanding teaching career, Palencar also teaches an art appreciation course through the Correctional Education Department at Ashland University.
