The Suffield Arts Council will present a display of photographs by Springfield resident Bill Ferro at Kent Memorial Library’s Pinney Gallery, 50 North Main St., in Suffield.

Ferro, formerly of New York City, was introduced at an early age to photography by his uncle and dabbled in the field for many years while traveling the country.

Since moving to Western Massachusetts, Ferro has photographed the coast from Maine to Florida.

The exhibit will feature many examples of Ferro’s portfolio, which includes vivid images of seascapes, wildlife, florals, and landscapes.

More recently, Ferro traveled to Alaska to photograph glaciers, mountains, and wildlife. 

The show, titled “Expressions In Light,” runs through March 31.

The exhibit is made possible through the joint efforts of Ferro, the Suffield Arts Council, and the staff of Kent Memorial Library.

Art Focus Fine Art & Custom Framing is hosting local photographer Teysha Vinson for March, with an artist reception on Friday, March 4.

Vinson’s show is titled “Here and Further Still” and features images of the Bitterroot Valley, the Bitterroot Mountains and beyond.  

“Most photos are from here and some are further,” Vinson said. “I’ve only lived here a few years but take my camera with me as I go around. I love the landscape.”

Her preference is not to take grand photos that try to capture the whole forest but prefers to take more intimate images.

“I’m often photographing the ground and the grass and plants, a section of the forest,” she said. “It’s what’s in front of me because I’m easily enchanted.”
