Deborah Miles-Williams from our School of Archaeology and Ancient History is exhibiting at ‘The Eye’ gallery in Leicester city centre until next week.

The Eye is a volunteer art exhibition project which began as a conversation between friends. A venue in central Leicester where shoppers, workers, locals and visitors could drop in and enjoy an art show?

Not a blink-and-miss-it pop-up, but a long term gallery with changing exhibits, showing really good work from artists who live and work in the city.

Deborah, who has worked at the University for 27 years, is showing her work at the LIGHT/DARK show.

She said: “It was great to get Light & Dark as my category, an opportunity to produce paintings of archaeological sites that link perfectly into the theme. I used photos as research and to produce the final paintings. And read a brilliant book called “The Archaeology of Darkness”, by Marion Dowd and Robert Hensey, exploring how humans have related to and interacted with darkness – especially in Prehistoric Britain, my major influence for the choice of sites I decided to paint.”

The exhibition runs until Wednesday 15 March at The Old Library Galleries on Belvoir Street, the entrance is through Leicester Adult Education College.
