Nationally recognized photographer Milly Moorehead West will bring her works to Meridian Community College’s Miller Art Gallery for its next exhibit.
“There is no way that I can explain the joy I had in putting this exhibit together,” West said in her artist statement. Some 30 images, ranging in titles from “Smiling People in a Dress Shop, getting ready for a special evening,” to “Pink Pontiac, Highway 16,” will be displayed when the show begins Wednesday, Oct. 13, and continues through Tuesday, Nov. 16.
The opening reception is Thursday, Oct. 14, from 4-5:30 p.m. in the gallery that’s located in Ivy-Scaggs Hall. Campus and community residents are invited to attend.
West, a two-time recipient of the Mississippi Institute of Arts and Letters Award in Photography and former owner of Southside Gallery in Oxford, earned her master of fine arts degree in photography from the University of Tulsa in Oklahoma.
