Live music by The Dawn Patrol.
Using media including sculpture, drawing, lithography, etching, and collage, Daley chronicled the particularities, personalities, and quirky beauty of Montana’s people, architecture, celebrations, and landscapes—seeing as an outsider, yet immersed in the daily life of the community. Her work reveals essential but often overlooked details of place—from workers changing shifts at the Anaconda smelter to Marcus Daly’s opulent Montana Hotel, from the frescos and ornate grillwork of the Washoe Theater to Hi-line grain elevators. Daley believes that “the ordinary things of life deserve to be seen,” and considers it part of her mission as an artist to see and re-present things that are so commonplace as to go unnoticed.
