Artist Talk: Louise Hamlin, Milkweed

March 22 at 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm


Join us Friday, March 22, 5:30-6:30 PM for a gallery discussion with the artist Louise Hamlin of Norwich, VT. Louise Hamlin studied art at UPenn, Skowhegan, and the New York Studio School. While commuting out of Manhattan to teach at various colleges, she returned home to make on-site paintings of the city at night and learn various aspects of printmaking. She has received awards from the Ingram Merrill Foundation, the New York Foundation for the Arts, the Mellon Foundation, and the Vermont Council on the Arts, and was awarded residency at the Djerassi Foundation. She has written numerous art reviews and provided cover art for many books and literary magazines. She worked with Coffee House Press to produce a limited edition of hand-printed poems by 15 poets, each accompanied by an etching of hers. She and videographer Michael Sacca collaborated on the printmaking film “Ink Across Time”, which won a Circle of Excellence Gold Medal from the Council for the Advancement and Support of Education. In 1990, she joined the Dartmouth Studio Art faculty and over the years taught painting, drawing, design, printmaking, freshman and senior seminars, and figure drawing. She was a Department Chair, Area Head of Printmaking, faculty advisor to the Book Arts Workshop, and designed the printmaking studio for the new Visual Arts building. Her work has shifted subject matter to address different aspects of her surroundings, which are often explored in both painting and printmaking. She shows regularly in group and solo exhibitions across the country, most recently at Dartmouth’s Hood Museum of Art, and is included in many public and private collections. The catalog for In the Moment, her 2022 solo exhibition at the Hood Museum of Art, is available through Amazon.
