An artist’s reception for “Images of Newtown’s Past,” an exhibition of photographs by Newtown resident and artist Phil Keane, has been scheduled for Sunday, October 29. The reception will run from 1 to 3 pm at Newtown Municipal Center, 3 Primrose Street, where the collection is on view weekdays through the end of the month.
The photographs, all of locations within Newtown, are printed on metal.
“It makes me think of the old-fashioned daguerreotype photographs,” Mr Keane said.
Mr Keane is the owner and director of Blue Sky Farm Productions, a studio located within Newtown that offers clients video and photography services for commercial and corporate clients, weddings, engagements, families, couples and individuals. It also creates event, architectural, real estate, informational, and product photos and videos.
Although the photography Mr Keane does is only part of what his studio offers, it is his passion.
A veteran of New York City’s Madison Avenue and national TV ad campaigns — Mr Keane has more than 20 years of experience making TV commercials, marketing, and advertising for Fortune 500 companies — he continues to find his inspiration in the vintage buildings of Newtown, including some that have been torn down.
Hosted by Newtown Cultural Arts Commission, “Images of Newtown’s Past” is a 2017 Newtown Arts Festival event.
