Art Opening Reception
In the Company of Lawyers
Main Wall Installation
For 34 years, from 1961-1994, Pat Goggins sold a million law books to lawyers – the essential tools of the trade in an era before the internet. During this time, Pat studied his clients – observing them in law schools and witnessing them representing clients. He watched many become judges and public servants at all levels. Pat found the law to be a noble process that serves to help people. He admires the contributions of lawyers in our communities and for society – participating with them in causes and seeing them in leisure time. After retirement, he began capturing just a few of the many lawyers Pat knows and loves in their off-duty moments with his old Hasselblad film camera.
His 2018 exhibit of black and white photographs, In the Company of Lawyers, gives us a glimpse into the distinctive lives of various attorneys, and reveals hints of why Pat appreciates their humanity.
