An exhibit featuring the work of photographer Terrell Lester is on display at the Kingman Gallery until Columbus Day weekend. The exhibit includes Lester’s work ranging from scenic photos of the blueberry fields on Caterpillar Hill to the mountain scenes of the American West.

Lester was a resident of Deer Isle from the 1980s to the early 2000s, during which time he captured the Maine coast from behind his lens. His work was displayed for many years in Deer Isle village in a gallery that beared his name. The gallery featured images of local interest such as a fall blueberry field meeting the sweeping vista of Caterpillar Hill or colorful sunsets reflected in Stonington Harbor.

Lester moved to Taos, New Mexico, in 2007 for a change of landscape and subject matter, and then moved again to the mountains of Colorado.

The Kingman Gallery exhibit is a sampling of images of the places he has visited over four decades. Previously unseen images of Maine are included in the exhibit.

“[Lester] was an important part of the Deer Isle community, not just for his photography, but his work with organizations such as the ambulance corps. He has a great many friends and fans who will appreciate knowing what he is doing now,” gallery owner Anne Kingman Page said in a news release. Gallery hours are Tuesday-Saturday, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. and Sunday, 1-5 p.m., or by appointment. Information: 207-712-7014, kingmangallery@gmail.com or kingmangallery.com.
