If you are interested in portraiture, then Walsall Art Gallery currently has a range of exhibitions that explore the theme.

'Behind the Mask' shows the work of a diverse group of artists, including Cindy Sherman, Gillian Wearing and Huw Locke. Much of the work is displayed as striking large scale photographs and looks at ideas of identity and culture. It is on until 12th September.
'Epstein's Portraits Revealed' is on until 19th September, and displays the gallery's collection of Epstein's portrait sculptures together with photos of the artist at work in his studio. There are quotes from family and friends and insights into his working methods.
