“Jim Dayton: Artist in His Studio” is open through Oct. 24 in the Laura H. Miles Gallery at Minnetonka Center for the Arts, 2240 N. Shore Dr., Wayzata. The exhibition offers a close look at Dayton’s professional career through his drawings, notes and models, and then moves beyond his architectural work to explore his notebooks, sketches and watercolor paintings. Dayton died in February at the age of 53. The exhibition is curated by Dayton’s daughter, Emma, with support from the Dayton family, Patrick Regan and James Dayton Design. Jim Dayton Design designed many buildings and public spaces in and around the Twin Cities, including the Minnetonka Center for the Arts, Highpoint Center for Printmaking, The Blake School, MacPhail Center for Music, and most recently, the addition to Westminster Presbyterian Church in Minneapolis.
