Esther M. Lee, left, and her daughter, Jessica L. Lee, right, with their self-portraits in the exhibition, "Reflections: A Self-Portrait Show," Bethlehem Fine Arts Commission, through Aug. 26, Rotunda Gallery, City Hall, Payrow Plaza, 10 E. Church St., Bethlehem. Esther Lee was the first African-American elected to the Bethlehem School Board "and the last," she says. Jessica Lee is the Director of Multimedia Design at WLVT, PBS-39. The title of Jessica Lee's self-portrait, "Seen and Unseen," neatly mirrors the subtext of self-portrait shows: what the artists and curators leave out is just as revealing as what they include.
