Free - Talking Art in Maine, Intimate Conversations: artist, Henry Isaacs and historian, Dan Kany

Talking Art in Maine is a series of intimate, one on one conversations between artist, Jane Dahmen, and notable artists and curators who have made a substantial contribution to the arts in the state of Maine. They are offered free to the public.

Guests are Dan Kany, art historian, critic, musician and author who has published a book, Travel Notes: Paintings by Henry Isaacs, about his very good friend, painter Henry Isaacs. The book explores Isaac's process, techniques, inspiration and greatest influences. An extensive traveler, Isaacs tells stories about the sometimes-quirky genesis of his paintings. As Kany explains, "Humanism and moral urgency certainly fuel Isaacs' painterly output, but so does his love of painting and culture-
that shared community space of people."
