I will start posting various opening receptions associated with Fotoweek, and this looks like a really good one to start with. It's important that everyone knows about them and can attend and socialize. I will update if there is something else fun to do in the area Saturday - or maybe people can go to dinner after. But this should be an excellent opening. PLEASE ALSO REGISTER WITH GOETHE BY CLICKING HERE IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO ATTEND. It's free.

Linger awhile. You are so beautiful. “Verweile doch, du bist so schön!” – Johann Wolfgang von Goethe from Faust Part II
Linger on! (Verweile doch) – this is the impetus that continues to generate new photographers.
Capturing fleeting moments in time, these diverse works by six artists present extraordinary encounters with contemporary art. They range from documentary photography which enhances reality via the deft use of framing and lighting to precisely staged productions.
