Postgraduate artwork to go on display at city Art Gallery

Photography, glassware, sculpture and ceramics will be among the artwork on display at the MA Degree Show.

Designed and created by postgraduate students, the show will be open from Monday 6 to Saturday 11 October 2014 at Wolverhampton Art Gallery and entry is free.

Over 60 Masters students from the University’s Design and Applied Arts, Fine Art and Digital and Visual Communications courses will be exhibiting their artwork.

Professor Dew Harrison, Associate Dean of Research and Postgraduate Studies, said: “This exhibition is the culmination of the excellent work undertaken by the School of Creative Arts & Design

Master’s students over the last year or two, and shows the diversity of creative thinking, skills and professional approach to practice that they have achieved in that time.

“Both full-time and part-time students have come from a variety of backgrounds and experiences, with a good proportion of international students to offer enriched cultural understandings of art and design.

“This is therefore, a particularly lively show from the three courses with multi-disciplinary work ranging from painting, sculpture, print, illustration and photography to audio-visual pieces, animation, glass work and installation.”

Neus Miro, Exhibition Curator at Wolverhampton Art Gallery, said: “It is wonderful being involved in the MA Design Show and we are really pleased to have the students’ artworks on display. The pieces featured are fantastic and demonstrate a really high level of skill and creativity. We are proud to be able to support the MA students and provide the gallery spaces for their show.”
