On Saturday, November 3rd, 189 people gathered in the Blast Furnace Room of ArtsQuest Center at SteelStacks in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania for SLIDELUCK Lehigh Valley II. Slideluck was part of the third annual Olympus InVision Photo Festival and Lehigh Valley Photography Month, presented by ArtsQuest under the direction of Janice Lipzin, Director of Visual Arts & Education.
A three-person local curating team made the selections for Slideluck Lehigh Valley II from over 40 entries. The work ranged from sports and fashion photography to photojournalism and personal collections, creating a fast-paced and varied program. Guests were not required to bring a dish to share because food and refreshments were provided by the catering service at ArtsQuest Center. Everyone enjoyed tasting Brooklyn Lager and Brooklyn East India Pale Ale, generously provided by Brooklyn Brewery.
Slideluck Lehigh Valley II was scheduled to end at 10 p.m., but many guests were still on hand at 11 p.m. when lights flashed to close the room for the evening. It was a sign of how much everyone enjoyed the event – too bad it had to end!
