Flatiron Building – (301 Broadway) – Beginning at 6pm, the Flatiron Building will host a reception celebrating the recent renovation of its first floor by interior design firm Swine Design with a brand-new exhibit featuring the photography of Glenn Koehler.  A South Bethlehem resident, Koehler’s work has encompassed everything from Hurricane Katrina to presidential visits and campaign trails.  His recent work depicting the last days inside Bethlehem’s iconic Martin Tower and subsequent implosion received considerable local attention.  “My intention for the Flatiron exhibit is to showcase a wide variety of Bethlehem scenery, from classic shots of the blast furnaces to viewpoints and locations rarely seen,” said Koehler.  “I hope my work allows people to not only enjoy some of Bethlehem’s beautiful vistas, but to provide perspectives that are different from the way nearly everyone has seen the city.”  The event will feature additional photography from Koehler in the building’s community room on the 5th floor, along with a beer tasting courtesy of neighboring Seven Sirens Brewing Company.

Fox Optical & Gallery – (28 E. Third Street) – Now through 02/29/20 – “Eye Eye Eye”. Textiles and other pieces by Ted Hallman. A reception for the artist will be held on First Friday 1/03/2020 from 6-9 pm.  Jazz pianist Alex Kauffman will perform.
