You can go around the world without leaving Massachusetts when you see “Ron Rosenstock’s World in Color.”

The exhibition of the Central Massachusetts artist’s photographs is on display at the Fitchburg Art Museum, 185 Elm St., through March 5 and showcases his fascination with nature and mankind’s place within it.

An intrepid world traveler, he has been captivated by the pursuit of beauty for over 60 years. His images evoke the earth’s splendor and hopefully inspire others to become stewards of the planet.

The exhibition is the first to exclusively feature his color photography, which demonstrates a willingness to experiment and accept chance as he pursues technical excellence.

On view are vivid glimpses into Rosenstock’s journeys to 12 countries around the world, from the cerulean skylines of Morocco to the prismatic cliffs of Iceland to the sepia cityscapes of Italy.

Join Rosenstock for a conversation and reception, 2-3 p.m., on Sunday, Nov. 13 at the FAM. It is free, but please register at Call 978-345-4207 or visit
