Jane Dahmen is a contemporary realist whose recent landscapes explore the forests and coastal regions of midcoast Maine. Her still lifes are inspired by domestic scenes. 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 is featured in the September issue of Old Port magazine on the ART page, "Jane Dahmen's Majestic Paintings." 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.
Since 2014, Dahmen has hosted "Talking Art in Maine: Intimate Conversations," one-on-one interviews with influential Maine artists, including Alex Katz, Yvonne Jaquette, Lois Dodd, Eric Hopkins, and curators Sharon Corwin of Colby College Museum of Art and Suzette McAvoy of CMCA.
Dahmen's work is part of numerous private and corporate collections in the United States and the UK. She has lived and worked in Newcastle, Maine since 2005.
