So you're not the sophisticated photographer with five cameras and your own darkroom? You can have your photos on display, though, during Fotofest '96.

Houstonians have the opportunity to submit and exhibit their own personal photographs at DiverseWorks as part of Fotofest.

Snapshot aims to put photography in the hands of the Houston community, said Susie Kalil, Visual Arts director at DiverseWorks.

"This exhibit provides a more intimate look at who we (Houstonians) are," she said.

Submissions are welcome from anyone interested in displaying photography.

The exhibit opens at 7 p.m. March 16 and runs through April 27 at DiverseWorks, 1117 E. Freeway. Submissions can be dropped off Saturday and Monday, 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. Call 223-8346 for details.

Why not start your spring break off with a little culture and a rare treat?

The Houston Symphony will perform "Schubert Rarities" Saturday, Sunday and Monday at 8 p.m.. The concert includes some rare Schubert orchestral pieces such as Wanderer Fantasy, orchestrated by Liszt; Schubert-Berio's Rendering and Schubert's Symphony in C Major, Grand Duo, orchestrated by Joachim.

Despite Schubert's impressive credits of more than 900 works, his arrangements for full orchestra are limited. Hear the two this weekend and kick off the break with a little class.

Performance times are at 8 p.m. Call 227-ARTS for tickets.
