GENESEO, N.Y. -- The paintings of the Daly family of New York's Wyoming County - Christine, Thomas and Jonathon - are being featured through Oct. 6 at the State University of New York at Geneseo's Lockhart Gallery, 26 Main St.

The Dalys are a family of fine artists and long time residents of Wyoming County. They live the lives of painters and produce stunning landscapes and still life works. Thomas Acquinas Daly, an avid hunter and fisherman, portrays nature in a way that reveals his unique hand and eye. His work received the Grand Central Art Gallery Gold Medal from President Ford in 1987. His art is shown throughout the country in museums, galleries and universities.

Christine Daly produces beautiful still life paintings of flowers and fruit that are painstakingly done with attention to light and color. She exhibits her works nationally and her paintings have graced the cover of national magazines.

Jonathan Daly's paintings have a touch of the surreal that exhibits a moodier side of country living. He is the son of these two fine artists, studied at Syracuse University and later received his MFA from Boston University. Since completing his MFA, he has shown in Boston, Buffalo, New York, and Massachusetts.
