URSA MAJOR GALLERY, 1 Deerfield Ave., Shelburne Falls, 413-824-0502. Christin Couture, “The Nearest Faraway Place,” a small selection of diminutive panel paintings from the studio. For over a decade in all weather and seasons, says the gallery, Couture has drawn, painted, photographed, and filmed from a precipice overlooking Salmon Falls, her “nearest faraway place” close to home in Shelburne Falls. The gallery includes this in its press release: “Its protean nature converges in a spectacle of light and mood constantly colliding and shifting yet retaining its iconic form as place. From such a bonding fully understood moments unfold their monumental intimacy. In the spirit of ever changing nature, several paintings will be exchanged with newer works in progress over the course of the exhibition at random times encouraging viewers to keep coming back. Accompanying video footage is in the works.” Through May 27.


WENDELL FREE LIBRARY, Herrick Room, Paintings by Edith Hunsberger, an exhibition of 15 works in acrylic and watercolor that encompass a wide range of subjects expressing a wide range of feelings. Hunsberger writes in her exhibition statement: “Though I was an art teacher early in my career and have painted off and on for most of my life, my professional experience has largely been as a bureaucrat/manager/statistician — very dry and stressful, enlivened only rarely by out-of-the-box exuberance and risk taking. But for the past several years I have been retired and live overlooking Lake Wyola in Shutesbury. I am now happily painting (watercolors and acrylics), fly-fishing from my kayak, golfing and playing tennis.” Hunsberger has shown her work each year for the past five at the Paradise city Arts Festival in Northampton and for two years at the festival in Marlborough. She has participated in numerous group and one person shows including Art Space in Greenfield, the Jones Library in Amherst, the Leverett Crafts and Arts Center, Greenfield Community College and the Art Show in Amherst. She maintains a studio in her home in Shutesbury and can be reached at 413-367-9890 or at See more of her work at Through June 30 in the Herrick Room. Tuesday 3 to 6 p.m.; Wednesday, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.; Saturday, 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
