Staged at the Texas-Mexico border, the photographs in "Smoke Bombs and Border Crossings" are a contemporary take on the imagery surrounding classic Spaghetti Western films. Influenced by her Italian heritage and Texas upbringing, Nancy Newberry investigates nationalism and community. She draws inspiration from classic Spaghetti Westerns, with an emphasis on costuming and uniforms. Newberry explores her fascination with regalia and continues her exploration for self-representation and cultural identity at large.

Newberry is an artist based in Dallas. Her performative portraiture investigates individuation, specifically focusing on cultural and social systems of belonging. Her work is deeply personal, exploring narratives of identity, myth and memory as the foundation of her practice.

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on view through October 7.
