Places of Spirit and Light: Photography by Larry Mendenhall

February 12, 2018

Photography by Larry Mendenhall will be displayed on campus, February 18 - April 11, 2018. A reception for the artist will be held on Thursday, February 22 from 5:30 - 7:30 p.m. in the Grand View University Student Center, Prairie Meadows Photography Gallery.

Churches in rural and small town Iowa are the subject of Larry Mendenhall’s photography exhibit, “Places of Spirit and Light.” The project captures the impression of being sacred places that the simple beauty of these fine, old buildings convey.

A former newspaper photographer, Maendenhall’s landscape photography has appeared in numerous juried art shows and exhibitions since 2003. In 2009, he took a break from landscape photography to begin work on “Places of Spirit and Light,” a project on which he spent three and a half years and drove more than 16,000 miles to complete.

Gallery hours: Monday–Thursday, 6 a.m.–10 p.m.; Friday: 6 a.m.–8 p.m.; Saturday: 9 a.m.–7 p.m.; Sunday: 11 a.m. – 8  p.m.
