Exhibition: Cairo then and now (
"Henry Matthew's recent trip to Egypt is responsible for an interesting dual exhibit featuring a modern artist's interpretation and a 19th century view of this ancient land.
Matthew, who is director of galleries and collections for Grand Valley State University, asked Cairo artist Rana Chalabi for a large group of watercolors depicting everyday life in that city.
Contrasted and compared with a similar series of prints by David Roberts, they bring to life the millennia-old monuments of Egypt and the life and times of Egyptians as Chalabi sees them."
