Artist:

Dahlov Ipcar

The artist of “Taking the Lead…” is perhaps the only muralist from the Depression-era to have her own Facebook-page. Born in 1917 and raised in New York’s Greenwich Village, she has lived in Maine since 1936. Her mother and father (William and Marguarette (Thompson) Zoarch) met in Paris at an art school. The husband-to-be recalled later; “I couldn’t understand how such a nice girl could paint such wild pictures.” Both parents painted murals and William later switched to sculpture. The Internet is full of information about the family.

    While visiting the Yukon, Oklahoma post office for the photos, the editor was photographing the mural when a woman waiting in line spoke up: “I know the artist who painted that mural!” She then mailed her package and introduced herself as Judy Chancellor and gave us the story of her Maine connection with the artist. Although the meeting was brief, Ms. Chancellor’s exuberance and candor makes us feel we have a friend in Yukon, Oklahoma. - Editor
