Art Salon: Len Schweitzer
As part of the The Global Lens of Len Schweitzer, an exhibit featuring his landscape photography from his worldwide travels on display at Beth-El Congregation since February 2018, the Temple will hold an Art Salon from 7 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, May 23, in the Boardroom.
Having recently returned from revisiting Scotland — one of his favorite venues — Schweitzer will share his impressions of the snow-covered Northwest Highlands, set in a landscape of open moorlands. He will also discuss and answer questions about the approaches, techniques, and processes he uses to capture the varied, evocative works featured in his exhibit.
Art salons date back to Paris in 1667 as an opportunity for artists, art lovers and others to gather, network and exchange ideas about art. Beth-El began holding its Art Salon in 2015.
