Photographer Tony Donovan will be exhibiting his basketball photography at the Buttonwood Tree Gallery, 605 Main St., Middletown., CT. An opening reception will be held Sunday, September 12, 3-5 pm.

A quote from Tony Donovan from the Buttonwood Tree's website: "Photographs from the basketball games at this summer’s Hoopfest 2010which were held at the Ray Barnes Memorial Courts on the ground of CT Valley Hospital, in Middletown.All sport is spirited, I suppose that’s why we love it. And for me, basketball has always seemed the most intense and dramatic of our games. My goal with these pictures has been to record some of the drama, effort, the cleverness and grace played out in the games at Hoopfest.

It is these elements of character and skill that I wanted to record. (Tony Donovan, July 2010)" "
