9 January – 28 February 2010

‘Portrait of Egypt’ is a collection of works resulting from Adele Wagstaff’s recent painting
trips to a small community on the edge of Luxor, in Egypt. The exhibition brings together
paintings, drawings and etchings inspired by the character and beauty of the Egyptian
people, and a series of prints inspired by the sculpture and wall reliefs of Hatshepshut’s
Temple. The portrait paintings in the exhibition depict the wonderful variety of Egyptian
characters who Adele met during her visits, and all are painted from life.

Museum opening hours are Mon – Sat 10-5, Sun 2-5
