TARLETON CASTLE BOARD OF DIRECTORS
FOUNDER & EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
Tim Dailey, raised with Quaker sensibilities, has always equated his actions with their effects on society. Although he had lucrative employment in the Tri-State area of Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware, Tim was drawn to the beauty and promise of northern New England. There he was accepted and has functioned in its communities for many years. Art is a sensibility that he has always applied to his work and environment when possible. For many years Tim was a commercial artist, restored antique automobiles, designed and built custom autos and accessories, and held other jobs. For the past twenty years, most of his work has been in the building trades as a designer and builder. Architecture can be a functional form of art lending purpose and beauty to structures and the landscape they meld with. They can and should be usable inhabitable sculptures.
DIRECTOR & BOARD PRESIDENT
Joe Shelton has been involved with the Tarleton Castle project for the past six years.
