Gloria S. Daly

Comments Off on Gloria S. Daly Artists

Daly’s art challenges the accepted need to find beauty in what is new. It asks the viewer to look for the inner beauty within the old and used.
The textiles she creates are labor intensive and thought provoking as they explore the relationship between yesterday’s discarded cloth and today’s philosophy of recycling.
Her hand stitching is a significant expression of her sense of personal commitment to each individual piece.
Daly holds diplomas and certificates in embroidery and design and an Associate Degree in Arts and Science from Vancouver Island University. She has received awards from BC Arts Councils and the Canada Council for the Arts. She has also exhibited two and three dimensional works with SAQA (Studio Art Quilt Associates), FAN (Fibre Art Networks) and SDA (Surface Design Association) groups. Her last exhibit “Blanket Statement – No Shame in Patches” has so far had 5 solo shows.
Daly’s works are in private and corporate collections in Australia, Canada, Japan and the USA.
Gloria S. Daly lives in the Cowichan Valley on Vancouver Island.
