There will be an artist's reception on Friday, July 29, 2011 from 6:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.

Tony Donovan's photographs are an intimate look at the way of life centered around the family-run sawmill at which he worked in preparation for making a film around 1973.  The images are both lyrical and graphic, and have one foot rooted in journalism and the other in fine art. There is more information about the origin of the images here.

His prints combine the artistry of film photography with the new technology of archival fine art digital (giclee) printmaking.

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)" "
