“Jim Dayton: Artist in His Studio” offers a close look at Jim’s professional career through his drawings, notes, and models, and then moves beyond his much-admired architectural work to honor his other artistic pursuits: his extensive notebooks, sketches, watercolors, and more.
Free and open to the public
Opening reception: October 3, 6-8 p.m.
Drawn from the archives of James Dayton Design, Ltd. as well as his personal studio, “Jim Dayton: An Artist in His Studio” offers an intimate look at the vast and varied output of a creative mind that was rarely at rest. The innovative, reiterative modeling and sketching on which his architectural career was based was matched during his personal time by a plethora of themed sketchbooks, watercolor and gouache paintings, graphic design and branding projects, and exquisitely crafted fly-fishing lures. Come immerse yourself in the artistic passions of a talent taken from us too soon!
