Talking Art in Maine, Intimate Conversations: Barbara Sullivan

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.

Barbara Sullivan makes frescos, a mural-painting technique which involves wire lathe armatures, and irrichio (a plaster-like substance) which dates back to the Renaissance. Sullivan says, "I love doing things the hard way.”

Sullivan, who teaches at UMaine Farmington, infuses her work with a wry wit. Her 3-D pieces are of contemporary objects such as a shopping cart filled with groceries or a lady digging wax out of her ear with a Q-tip – subjects that show how we live our lives with humor, while done with careful expertise and skill.

About our host, Jane Dahmen. Jane is a contemporary realist artist whose recent landscapes explore the forests and coastal regions of mid coast Maine. Her work has been shown in solo and group shows both in the U.S. and abroad. One of her paintings hung in the White House in Washington D.C. during George H W and Barbara Bush's tenure, and several of her paintings were part of a show at the U.S. Embassy in Bosnia Herzegovina. Prints and posters of her paintings have been widely distributed around the world by UNICEF and Grafique de France of Paris, France. 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 the Artists' Issues of 2011 and 2012.

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. Her website is
