Ball Players is a solo exhibition of new drawings by Chris Durante of Redding, Connecticut at the Gallery at Still River Editions, 128 East Liberty St., Danbury, CT. The exhibit runs from March 11 - May 31, 2013, and there will be an opening reception on Saturday, April 6 from 4 - 6 pm. 

Durante uses ink and collage elements to express his nearly life-long interest in all things baseball, in particular the characters that inhabit the "cathedrals of baseball". The stylized figures convey the attitude and soul of players past and present, real and imaginary.

Chris Durante is an Adjunct Professor of Studio Art at Norwalk Community College, and owns Chris Durante Framing Studio in Danbury, CT. He is a member of the Silvermine Guild of Artists.
