It will be presented Thursday, August 5th. Come to the reception and have an opportunity to meet the artists. Mike had an interest in people and how they responded to life. We are showing how he was “painting simple things that are true.” Our gallery will be displaying 58 wonderful pieces of Mike Dally’s artwork. Mike was born in Pittsburg, PA where he lived briefly till his family moved first to Des Moines, IA, then Scottsbluff, NE. In the tenth grade he moved with his mother to Rochester, NY. While there, he attended the Rochester Institute of Technology for a few months of formal art training and met and married Jerrette. After returning back to the area he owned a small antique and furniture restoration shop in Mitchell, NE. He and his wife also operated a crisis care center for Scottsbluff County which served as an alternative to jail for juveniles awaiting court dates. Following the sale of his shop and closing of the crisis care center he started Mike Dally Painting, a house painting business, and J&M Dally Art Service, working with his wife doing photo restoration, print enhancement and negative retouching for area photographers and out of state photo labs. The reception is 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. on August 5th. Hors d’oeuvres and refreshments will be served.
