    Reflections of Tony King

    June – November, 2018

    The artistic excellence of the late B.A. “Tony” King (1934–2017) is showcased in this Museum Café exhibit of 31 of his photographs. Tony King began his love affair with photography as a child when his mother gave him his first camera. Through his photographic lens, the artist captured the beauty and magnificence of the natural world, as well as the joy and poignancy of life. The selected works celebrate his love of New England and provide an insight into his approach to both photography and life—and their inextricable connections that were so meaningful to him.
