June 5, 2012- June 27, 2012


Our good friend Sondra Samuels introduced us to Daisy and suggested we get to know her and her art. We did. And now Daisy has a show, her first solo show, in our gallery.

Daisy Giles is a Minneapolis based artist with a current focus on portraiture. Her true nature portraits are based on specific women she has come in contact with as friends and acquaintances. Her paintings aim to show an undiscovered side she sees in these regular women, or how she imagines their true selves to be - unfettered by the social and physical world we are bound by everyday.

Her current interest is in portraits of women, especially women of color - aiming to fill the gap she sees in more traditional fine arts depictions of elegance, whimsy, mystery, and complexity in women of color. Daisy graduated from the BFA program at the University of Minnesota Twin Cities in 2011.

Opening Reception: Friday, June 8th from 6p to 9p

Closing Party: Friday, June 22nd from 6p to 9p
