Hercules – most famous of all the Greek heroes – steps directly out of a Greek vase and into the New World in this series of beautifully observed lithographs and etchings. New Zealand artist Marian Maguire imagines Herakles as nineteenth-century colonist, venturing into a landscape where his labours are both mundane and extraordinary.
Drink and Draw will become a regular feature of the Museum of Classical Archaeology's creative programme after queues formed outside the Museum for the first time at this year's Museums at Night event. One hundred and seventy-six people visited to enjoy a glass of wine and draw the casts under the expert eye of artists Susie Olczak and Loukas Morley.
