Current and Upcoming Events

Meet Macro Photographer Joseph Ferraro (Me)

on Oct 7

We’re hosting a VIRTUAL Art Reception with macro-photographer Joseph Ferraro. We’ll be sharing glimpses of his incredible close-up images of native pollinators on our social media pages (custom made, printed onto birch). But on October 7, at 7pm, you can MEET Ferraro via ZOOM and ask him questions about his process, about his gear, or about pollinators!

This presentation will be made available virtually. The library will email the link to registered attendees on the day of the presentation.


I had so much fun talking with (and to) Jeff Milo and the camera about some of my work that was supposed to be shown earlier in the year.
