This January the Porter Mill gallery is very pleased to be featuring one of our best, Sadie Dayton and her wonderful photography in "Sillage". Sadie Dayton honed her craft at the School of Visual Arts (BFA) and Endicott College (AS) graduating with high honors in photography from both. Born on the New England coast her inspiration comes from the transient elements of nature. Drawn to the stark beauty within Japanese aesthetics she too melds elusiveness, simplicity and innate energy. Her evocative images treat landscapes as a portrait and a portrait as a moving force.
Inspired by fellow artists who have captured illusiveness with a similar devotion to her own she notes the words of Anais Nin, lyrics of Leonard Cohen and the Icelandic music of Sigur Ros.
Featuring the excellent photography work by Sadie Dayton the opening reception with also include a live dance performance in Sadie's studio by Boston dancers Maz and Django in a piece collaborating with musicians Jared & Noni.
Both Broadway performers, singer/songwriters, multi-instrumentalists, choreographers, actors Jared & Noni met performing with the international percussion sensation STOMP and toured the world. Jared starred as Jerry Lee Lewis in the Tony Award Winning show, Million Dollar Quartet on Broadway. Together they formed a Minneapolis-based duo, The Lovers Show, a theatrical band of melodic pop-funk. Today, they run their own Creative Production Company located on the North Shore of Boston, where they work on original musical/theatrical installations, run creative workshops and perform live
"Sillage" will be in our main gallery at the Porter Mill this January 7th 2016 to February 6th with our reception being held on Thursday February 4th from 6pm to 8pm. Free wine and refreshments will be served in the gallery along with a live musical dance performance in Sadie's studios located next to the gallery.
Mark your calendars and come down to the Mill this January!
