Portrait of a Woman
The University's first portait to hang in Firth Court depicting a woman has been unveiled at the Portrait of a Woman celebration event, held on 2 March.
Emeritus Professor Gillian Gehring was selected as the first subject of the Portrait of a Woman Prize by a comissioning panel comprised of University staff and external members, and painted by critically-acclaimed portrait artist Frances Bell. Professor Gehring was selected from University-wide nominations of 28 inspiring women who were photographed for an exhibition which has been touring the University.
