Ed Friedman was a kind man with a huge heart and a love for the saxophone. He played his music at The Buttonwood Tree years ago and found it a natural fit for him to display his photographs there when the time was right. He was an active musician and taught in the public schools in East Hampton for 24 years and Bridgeport for 11. Edward passed peacefully in 2019. It was a great loss for our community, and we are honoring him and his love for Middletown’s North End Community with this photo contest and exhibition.

TBT is honored to have an outstanding group of photographers who have so kindly offered to be our judges. Chief Judge: Matthew Kabel (Superintendent of Photography for the Durham Fair)

Funding provided in part by the City of Middletown's Commission on the Arts (MCA), and the Community Foundation of Middlesex County (CFMC). Our gratitude to them!!
