West displays photography at international art exhibit
Bruce West, art and design professor at Missouri State University, will feature his photography at the God Factor project in Braga, Portugal from Nov. 10-Dec. 22.
God Factor is an international exhibition organized by curator Ines Valle, featuring an array of media. The project, held at the Mosteiro de Sao Martinho de Tibaes, will focus on the fragile relationship between art and religion.
“I feel quite honored to exhibit my work in Portugal, especially within the critical and philosophical context of The God Factor Project,” said West. “Throughout my career as a photographic artist, I have always been concerned about exploring my personal relationship with religion and spirituality. I welcome the opportunity to share my work and concerns along with many other artists from around the world.”
West will exhibit a series of photographs called “Spiritual Advisor to the World.” The series features Reverend H.D. and Margaret Dennis, an elderly couple from rural Mississippi who have dedicated the past 20 years to turning their grocery store into a one-of-a-kind, non-denominational church.
“I am delighted that the accomplishments of the Reverend and Margaret Dennis are receiving international attention and recognition,” said West.
West will discuss the content and motivation of his work in the project’s first panel discussion Nov. 11.
