This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Active in Indianapolis, Indiana art circles in the mid 20th century as an etcher, painter, teacher, and organizer, Evelynne Daily was Director of the Brown County Art Gallery Association from 1962 to 1964, and 1969-1971.

She was president of the Indiana Federation of Art Club, 1967-1969; and from 1940 to 1960, was instructor of painting and printmaking at Oxbow Acres Summer Art School in Brown County, Indiana.

Her first husband was painter George Jo Mess, with whom she shared a studio in Indianapolis after their marriage in 1925.  Daily was raised in that city by parents who were musicians, and although she too had musical talent, from the time she was a child she wanted to be an artist.  Her parents encouraged that interest, and at age twelve, she became a scholarship student at the John Herron Art Institute.  Her teacher was illustrator Frederick Polley (1875-1957). 

For one year, 1921, she studied at the Butler Institute, and then returned to Herron where she became certified as an art teacher.  She took a teaching position at the Manual Training High School in Indianapolis and also taught evening classes at the Herron Institute.  In addition, she worked as a class assistant to William Forsyth, one of the most prominent Herron teachers, and in this capacity, she met George Mess.
