My name is Lori Daugherty and Darty Art is my new studio space located in the Front Street Buildings in downtown Dayton, Ohio. As a freelance artist much of my work is done at home, however in order to create artwork I simply needed some more space. I enjoy working with Alternative Photography Methods, Pastels, Painting and Pottery and the studio space has been designed to accommodate most of my methods of work. 


Darty Art not only gives me the space that I need to create, but a place to showcase my work as well. The Front Street Building is a community full of local artists, and most of the studios and galleries are open to the public a couple days a month. At Front Street we connect, interact, and learn from one another and I’m very grateful to have this fantastic opportunity to become more involved in the wonderful world of art.


My talented husband (and best friend) Jon and my creative daughter Kelsey both share in the passion of art. They have been very supportive and I could never have accomplished this journey without them. Occasionally you’ll encounter Jon or Kelsey working at the studio, and sometimes their wonderful artwork will be on display. 


Darty Art will be OPEN to the public on the First Friday (6pm-9pm) of each month, the Third Sunday (11am-4pm) of each month and by appointment. Please stop by and visit the studio when you get a chance.
