Witness to Beauty | Sage Sohier
foley gallery
Nov 16, 2017
Foley Gallery is pleased to present Witness to Beauty, a solo exhibition featuring photographs of Sage Sohier’s mother, Wendy Morgan.  This will be the artist’s 4th solo exhibition with the gallery. 

Witness to Beauty is a 25-year chronicle of Sohier’s relationship with her mother and sister Laine, who often appears alongside Morgan in the photographs. In the late 1940’s, Morgan graced the covers of magazines - even photographed for the cover of Life by Richard Avedon and often photographed by Horst, Irving Penn and Louise Dahl-Wolf.  

In the words of Sohier: “As I grew older, there was no use competing with her, “so I assumed my position, quite happily, on the other side of the camera…” Morgan feels that her beauty is not only a gift, but a major part of her identity that she must aim to maintain it at all times. 

Sage Sohier (b. 1954) has been photographing people in their environments for more than 30 years.  Her work is in several public collections including the Museum of Modern Art, The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, The Cleveland Museum of Art, The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, The Portland Art Museum, and The Brooklyn Museum.  She received her B.A. from Harvard University.
Photographs from Witness to Beauty have been featured on the New York Times Lens Blog, Lenscratch, Harper’s Bazaar, Photo District News and the Guide to Unique Photography Magazine. The solo exhibition at Foley Gallery follows solo exhibitions at Carroll and Sons in Boston, MA and Blue Sky Gallery in Portland, OR.

Witness to Beauty is on view through January 7th 2018. Foley Gallery is open Wednesday through Saturday, 11 - 6pm and Sunday from 12-5pm. To request images; please contact the gallery at info@foleygallery.com.
