Opening Reception for Torin Porter at Mitchell - Giddings Fine Arts


Mitchell • Giddings Fine Arts is pleased to present "Before Words", an exhibition of steel sculptures by Torin Porter running from May 4th to June 18th. An opening reception will take place on May 4th at 5pm. An Artist Talk is set for June 10 from 5-7pm.

Torin Porter’s playful stylized figures suggest the communicative power of sculptural art before language and logic come into play. In Before Words Porter pays tribute to the most intimate of conversations that take place between art and those who create and view it, and examines the results of the physical dynamic of the process of creating.  As Porter states, “Art is a form of human communication that everyone young or old, no matter what language they speak, responds to directly.”  Within his work an emphasis is placed on humanness as it exists in the imagination and its inventions.  

Growing up in Northern Vermont, Porter spent summers with the Bread and Puppet Theater, and later performed with the MOMIX dance company and the rock band Jane’s Addiction.  Porter’s sculptures have been exhibited in galleries throughout New England and New York, and his sculptural installations have been featured at many Phish festivals. He currently resides in Glover, VT.
