H. William Scovill Exhibit & Reception

Exhibit: November 2-30, 2012

Reception: Sunday, November 4, 2012 from 1:00-3:00 p.m.

As part of the Stockbridge Library’s 1962 centennial celebration, an exhibit was mounted in the lobby of the building highlighting the artistic work of Bill Scovill. This exhibit was one of the library’s first to feature local artists, a tradition that continues today. Mr. Scovill, a photographer, moved to Stockbridge in 1948 and remained here until his death in 1996. He is most often recognized for the work he did for Norman Rockwell between 1953 and 1963; many of those photographs have become part of the Rockwell Museum’s permanent collection.

Now, to commemorate the library’s 150th anniversary, we will once again offer a display of Scovill’s work with the help of his family, Michael & Judy Beresford, during the month of November. This exhibit will concentrate on scenes Scovill recorded in Stockbridge and the surrounding area. His prints show the streets of the town, and the flowers and trees in nearby woods. The centerpiece of the exhibit is a large photograph of Queen Anne’s Lace (right). Scovill donated this piece, which was part of the 1962 exhibit, to the library’s collection as an example of his work. Other photographs in the exhibit are on loan from his family and from local residents who knew Scovill.
