Art Exhibits

Unstudied Nature

Paintings of John Daly

September 4 - October 30 in the Meeting Room Gallery

John Daly is an historian as well as an artist. At one point in his career he worked for PAL (Public Historical Laboratory) where he was Senior Industrial Historian. He has spent over ten years documenting the landscapes of industrial sites and examining the intersection of the natural with the built environment. Daly brings that dynamic to his landscape paintings. He regards landscape as the manifestation of the intersection between nature and culture. His particular concerns are the relationship between contemporary or historical activities and specific physical environments, and the future ramifications for the cultural landscape because of technological development.

His website can be found at
