Dahlov's 2015

Ipcar's Cats Poster Calendar

Dahlov, who will turn 97 on November 12, is a remarkable figure in American arts and letters.  The painter grew up in New York City, spending her summers in Georgetown with her brother and her parents, Marguerite and William Zorach. At age 19, she and her husband Adolph bought their own farm on the coast of Maine and she lives there still.  She has enjoyed success both as a fine art painter, with her paintings in museums and galleries around the nation, and as an illustrator and author of more than 30 childrens' books.

 

This event is free and open to the public; all proceeds from this event benefit GHS.
