For the record, we who call the Santa Clarita Valley cities our home, are not “uncultured”.
Photo and Charity Event
Coming to the Westfield mall in the beautiful city of Valencia CA, is a four month Photographic display by Local Santa Clarita Photographer Ted Dayton. The start date of this will be May 16th, 2012.
Besides some of the most beautiful black and white photos being expertly presented and for sale, Ted will donate part of the proceeds to the Single Mothers Outreach (SMO).
Single Mothers Outreach
SMO was founded in 1995 as a resource and to provide support for single mothers struggling through the process of Divorce or Death of a spouse. Single Mothers Outreach provides empowerment for single parents and their children by providing home, support and resources, so that families can gain their footing once again.
So hence the connection between the Single Mothers Outreach and this Photographic presentation.
Bridges, an art form?
During a typical Santa Clarita bike ride, Ted Dayton was traveling under one of our local bridges – one that crosses the Santa Clarita River, it was at that time he was “inspired”. Returning later with his camera loaded with black and white film.
During the next four months, Ted was able to capture a multitude of photos with “bridges” as the primary subject matter.
“I had no idea we had anywhere near 27 traffic bridges in the Santa Clarita Valley”, I’m thinking this as I’m typing 🙂
But that is what Ted had photographed in his artistic style.
Not Ted’s First Rodeo
This is not Ted Dayton’s First Rodeo either. He has done projects in the past to benefit other “help and non-profit groups”. We are proud to write about this event and I will make it a point to visit the “Beauty is a Bridge” presentation while it is at the Valencia Westfield Town Center Mall in Valencia CA.
When and Where
“Beauty Is a Bridge” opens May 16 at the east end of the mall, upstairs from the carousel, with an opening reception from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.
If you want to go to Ted Dayton’s Website we have placed that link here – Ted Dayton Photography.com. If the Telephone is more your style Ted can be reached at 661-255-2828.
It runs through September 15 and is open during regular mall business hours. Admission is free.
As Ted Says, “Make it beautiful. Make it useful.”
