Michael Dailey has been making landscape paintings for more than 40 years. During that time he has been balancing line and color to produce paintings about the nuances of space, light, and atmosphere that comprise our memories of time and place. We value Dailey's paintings not because they provide a literal description of a landscape, but because they offer us a chance to revisit and savor part of our past.

Born and educated in Iowa, Michael Dailey moved to Seattle in 1963 to teach painting and drawing at the University of Washington. He is regarded as an influential and much loved teacher by his former students, many of whom are now practicing artists. Dailey retired in 1998 but continues to live and paint in the Northwest.
Robin Updike writes about art and cultural affairs from Seattle, Washington. She is the former art critic for the Seattle Times and has worked as a reporter on newspapers in California, Colorado, and Washington.

"I want a painting that coaxes the viewer into it. So much painting out there seems to hit people over the head. I'd much rather make a painting that people want to look at again and again."
