Divine Power: Mortals, Myths & Deities

Featuring work by Nandini Valli Muthiah and Yevonde Philone Middleton

In Bell Walk Gallery Until 19th November

The exhibition in the museum gallery has now closed, but the images in the Bell Walk Gallery will be on display until the 19th November

Thursday to Sunday 10:30 – 16:00
Eastgate Centre, Gloucester, GL1 1AG (11 Bell Walk & the Hundred Heroines Museum on the first floor)

We’re thrilled to be hosting more outstanding photography in Gloucester with our latest exhibition!

Bringing together the work of two exceptional photographers, one from the 1930s and one from the 21st century, Divine Power: Mortals, Myths & Deities explores the fascination we have with mythology and deities.  It also examines the interesting questions raised about the reception of classical mythology.  Nandini offers a selection from her series Remembering to Forget (2008-11), The Definitive Reincarnate (2003/6) and The Visitor (2010), whilst the works from Yevonde are mainly from her Goddesses series along with some of her other iconic images.

Big thanks to Sisters of the Lens and the National Portrait Gallery, London, for their help in making this happen!

Associated Activities in the Museum

If you were a deity, who would you be?  And why?  Add your answer to the notice-board in the Bell Walk Gallery or email your answer to and we’ll add it for you.

For young creatives we have a treasure hunt and in-gallery sketching. Choose objects from the treasure table and find the pictures where those objects appear or grab a stool and some paper and have a go at copying one of Nandini’s or Yevonde’s works of art.  Each time you participate, you get a stamp on your card, a sticker and a rubber insect (and the maggots feel VERY realistic …). And once you get five stamps, there’s a cute, cuddly prize!



We have activities for young creatives every weekend.
