An exhibition of artwork by Miriam Hyman, who lost her life when the bus she was travelling on was blown up in the 7/7 London bombings, is to be shown in Oxford Town Hall.

Miriam, who was also known as Mim, was a 31-year-old freelance picture researcher when her life was cut short.

The exhibition, Mimento – Paintings & Pastels by Miriam Hyman will be on show until February 16 and is free to attend, follows a July 2006 exhibition of her work at London's City Hall.

"In showing the Mimento exhibition in Oxford we want to give the public further access to Mim's artwork which has always given so much pleasure to people, and in a city she loved," said Miriam's sister Esther Hyman. "It has been an honour to organise this showing of the exhibition for her."

Getty Images, a company Miriam worked with, is sponsoring the exhibition.

"Getty Images are sponsoring this exhibition because we miss her, and this is our way of saying thank you to someone extremely special that was a joy to work with and regularly brightened up our day," said Rick Mayston, national account manager. "If we can play a small part in making sure that she is never forgotten by those in and around the industry that meant so much to her, we will always be happy to do so."
