Northern Hardwoods

 

 

Northern HardwoodsThe inspiration for the paintings in Jane Melanson Dahmen ’63’s newest series, Northern Hardwoods (at the Firehouse Gallery in Damariscotta, Maine), comes from walks through the forests of coastal and inland Maine. A departure from her earlier art, the most recent work begins in the natural world but draws the audience into a space where the two-dimensional image is as interesting as the sense of depth. The large format of the paintings (some are nine feet by six feet) invites the viewer to enter the environment of the art.
