The door of Clayton Patterson’s gallery at 161 Essex St. was recently unveiled as Number 7 in the “13 Portals” project by the Free Art Society. The Clayton portal was celebrated with dancing, drumming and performance by a cast of colorfully costumed revelers. The final event will be in October, when the full mystery of the “13 Portals” will at last be revealed.
