11 June-14 July 2010. Portraits and narrative paintings by the Nairobi-based artist Dale Webster challenge the popular stereotype of the Maasai as an exotic, decorative and picturesque people. The works on display show the effects of the recent drought on a Maasai family from Ol Tepesi in the Rift Valley, including the loss of most of their livestock and consequently of their means of subsistence, trade and social interaction, and their resulting dependency on the Red Cross and government food aid. Entry free.
