Jane Dahmen, who moved to Maine in 2004, is a contemporary realist whose recent landscapes explore the trees, fields, rivers, streams and coastal regions of midcoast Maine. Dahmen's work has been shown in solo and group shows both in the U.S. and abroad. Dahmen was Maine Audubon's signature artist in 2005, and was a featured artist in the September, 2009 issue of Maine Home + Design magazine, and their Artists' Issues of 2011 and 2012. She was featured in the September 2014 issue of Old Port magazine. One of her paintings hung in the White House in Washington D.C. in the late 1980's- 1990's, and several of her paintings were part of a show at the U.S. Embassy in Bosnia Herzegovina in 2002. Graphique de France sold posters of her work all over the world during the 1990's and early 2000's.
Since 2013, Dahmen has hosted "Talking Art in Maine: Intimate Conversations," one-on-one conversations with other Maine artists, including painters and sculptors such as Alex Katz, Yvonne Jaquette, Lois Dodd, Eric Hopkins, Katherine Bradford, Anna Hepler, John Bisbee, William Wegman, Alan Bray, Tom Hall, Jesse Salisbury and Kazumi Hoshino, and curators Sharon Corwin of Colby College Museum of Art, Suzette McAvoy of CMCA, and Anne and Frank Goodyear, Co Directors of the Bowdoin College Museum of Art.
