L. A. Dahlmer

b. 1946

Painter of Gloucester

L. A. “Larry” Dahlmer has lived in Gloucester his entire life, and on the East Gloucester waterfront for most of the last 40 years. The son of a Gloucester fisherman, he is the grandson of a northern Michigan gill-netter who, with several other families, moved east with their boats from the Great Lakes about a century ago.

Idiosyncratic, and a follower of his own vision and singular way of life, he has made his living mainly as a self-taught wooden boat builder. He began painting seriously about 8 years ago.

It has been a privilege and a pleasure to encourage his unique talent. These paintings, painted from subjects dear to the artist and his heritage, are, I believe, among the most original and extraordinary being done today on Cape Ann.

All paintings are oil on masonite.
