Exhibitions at Hereford Museum and Art Gallery
15 March to 24 May 2014 - I am not who you think I am by Heather Bowring
A collection of sixteen tactile relief portraits and recordings featuring a cross-section of society. Through her work, Heather Bowring wants to challenge the initial assumptions we make about each other based purely on visual observation rather than knowledge gained through verbal communication. There will also be another set of 16 pictures each holding a clue as to which of the 16 portraits it corresponds with. Each picture will have an audio commentary alongside it.
Meet the experts, see the collections
On the second Thursday and third Tuesday of every month from 10am until 1pm there is the opportunity for you to come along to the Museum Resource and Learning Centre to meet the curators and see the collections. Bring an item for identification or as a donation, take a tour of our state of the art storage facilities or ask for advice on conserving your own artefacts.
On the second Thursday of the month you can meet the experts on costume and textiles, geology, natural history, documents and ethnography.
On the third Tuesday of the month experts on archaeology, fine and decorative art, social history and arms and armour will be available to answer enquiries.
Peter Reavill - the Finds Liaison Officer for the county - will attend some of the sessions. Find out more information about Finds Liaison and the Portable Antiquities Scheme.
