Thomas Aquinas Daly exhibit opens Sunday at Kenan Center

(Continued)

Night & Day — The artist, whose family once owned a furniture store and Finn Funeral Home in the Falls, attended Sacred Heart School and Bishop Duffy High School (now Niagara Catholic). “I practically lived in the gorge,” he said. “That’s where it came from — being outdoors all the time,” he said of the pursuits that spurred his art. 

Center director Susan Przybyl is hoping Daly’s work will increase the male presence among the exhibit’s attendees, due to the outdoor nature of his watercolors and oils.

“Daly pulls the viewer into his landscapes by capturing the spirit of a place in a quiet, reflective manner,” Prysbyl said. “We were especially intrigued about the idea of presenting themes that would appeal to the male population. “

The exhibit opens at 2 p.m. Sunday and continues through Sept. 8.
