LACONIA — For the month of August, Dan Daly's exhibit "Scenic Roots" is showing at The Studio, 50 Canal Street in Laconia. Daly's work is crafted from wood scraps left over from his work as an award-winning set designer for the Winnipesaukee Playhouse. These intimate, often intricate works bring together Daly's talent as a designer and builder and his vision as an artist.
When audience members go to the theater, they take in the whole experience: the actors, the lights, the script, the set. They don't usually think about the fact that the set often begins as raw lumber. "Dan is able to see the art that is inherent in both the large stage-crafted pieces and the small remnants of construction," comments Melissa McCarthy, owner of The Studio and curator for the gallery there. "The work is lovely, a great combination of raw and finished material, and beautifully constructed." McCarthy noted that two of the pieces sold as the artist was installing, a good indication of how accessible the work is.
"Scenic Roots" will be at The Studio through August 31. An opening reception for the artist will be held Thursday August 1 from 5 p.m. until 8 p.m. The Studio is open Wednesday through Friday 10-5, Saturday 10-3, and by appointment. For more information call 603-455-8008.
