The Stockbridge Library will commemorate its 150th anniversary by exhibiting the photographic work of the late Bill Scovill during the month of November.

This exhibit will concentrate on scenes Scovill recorded in Stockbridge and the surrounding area. A reception will be held from 1 to 3 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 4.

Scovill, a Stockbridge resident from 1948 until his death in 1996, 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.

Scovill’s work was also exhibited as part of the library’s 1962 centennial celebration. This exhibit was one of the library’s first to feature local artists, a tradition that continues today.
