Vince Lupo’s ‘Mapping the West’ photography exhibit charts his ongoing personal journey through the American West: “‘Spirit of the West’ is a term mentioned whenever discussions of the western United States arise. Until I began to venture out there, I didn’t quite understand what it meant. Through this work, I am discovering what ‘Spirit of the West’ means to me. At times it’s a beautiful, vast nothingness. Other times I see evidence of a fading past that I do not know, yet appearing more ‘authentic’ to me than the present. Oftentimes I’m confronted with religious symbols which serve as reminders of an adherence to tradition – but not without visible conflict.” The exhibition of 20 photographs opens Friday November 15 with a reception from 6pm to 8pm. Refreshments will be served. The exhibition runs until December 7.
