Opening Reception: Thursday 21 November, 6.00pm - 8.00pm

Dallas-based photographic artist Nancy Newberry brings her internationally recognised brand of performative photographic portraiture to Luton in a two-part project which includes her first UK commission.

Newberry’s unique style is introduced in an exhibition of her ongoing work, Smoke Bombs and Border Crossings, (2016 - 2018), a contemporary ‘Spaghetti Western’ photographed on both sides of the border between Mexico and Newberry’s native Texas. While this work is on display, Newberry is visiting the UK to create a series of new photographic portraits of the leaders, members and young people of Luton’s faith communities, which will form the second part of the exhibition - Articles of Faith - early in the new year.
