Artists’ Studios: Lois Dodd

In our Artists’ Studios series four artists talk about how their studio and sense of place affect their work, and what Maine means to them.

American painter Lois Dodd began her career in New York during the postwar art scene and was the only female founding member of Tanager Gallery, one of the 10th Street Cooperatives. During the summers, Dodd migrated to mid-coast Maine along with her many of contemporaries, including Alex Katz and Neil Welliver, to create work inspired by the rich character and natural beauty of the region.

Lois Dodd’s first museum retrospective, Lois Dodd: Catching the Light, will be on view at the PMA from January 17 through April 7.
