November Artist Dan Daniels

Watercolors on Exhibit the Month of November at the Milne Library

Artist Dan Daniels will be exhibiting his watercolor still life, landscape, and wildlife paintings inspired by our Native American heritage at the Milne Library in Williamstown for the month of November. Dan, a resident of Hancock is an avid birder which accounts for the many birds in his paintings. He spent many years working for the United State Government Bureau of Indian Affairs in the American Southwest. The influence of the Hopi, Navajo, Plains, and Pueblo Indians id reflected in his work.  All of his artwork are for sale and make great gifts.
