David Morgan West, IV 6/28/1952 - 1/18/2017

Morgan West came to Iowa City 30 years ago to study at the University of Iowa.  He was raised on a farm near Sydney, Iowa.  Although he was troubled with depression, schizoaffective disorder, and alcoholism, he was a multi-talented man who earned two master's degrees in the physical sciences and was creative in  writing and art.  In January of this year, he died unexpectedly but peacefully where his fiance, Angel Ross, found him in his favorite chair.  He left behind many people who loved him for his sweet disposition and generosity. We at the gallery are honored to commemorate this man through his uniquely crafted drawings and paintings, although Angel says his preferred artistic expression was writing poetry.
