Abstract

Egham has always been quite picturesque. Embraced by green fields and historical landmarks, Egham and its surroundings have been ideal subjects for artists across centuries. Both local and visiting artists have been committed to eternalising Egham’s beauty through their art.

This online exhibition places women artists and their works at the forefront of this artistic interest in Egham. Through their art, these women take the role of tour guides as we embark on a pictorial journey across time, exploring the buildings, events, and locations which reveal the importance of our local community.

The exhibition is divided in three parts, each focused on a different period. Through the discovery of the museum’s artistic collection, we look at depictions of local scenes by women artists to further understand our local history and how it reflects the social and artistic developments of each period.

The exhibition was curated as part of a TECHNE/Royal Holloway-supported placement at the Egham Museum.
