STUDENT ART EXHIBITON IS UNVEILED
Talented students at City of Wolverhampton College have unveiled their finest works of art at their end of year show.
The exhibition, showcasing a range of work from Art, Design and photography courses is now on at Wolverhampton Art Gallery until July 2.
The show features a selection of art work, including fine art, fine art, textiles, fashion, graphic design, 3D sculpture and a range of photography by both full and part-time students.
At a private viewing on Wednesday night, Art and Design student Francesca Wainwright was named Student of the Year for her dedication and willingness to try new techniques.
The 28-year-old, who is now moving on to study textiles at Birmingham City University, said: “I came to the college with just GCSEs and it’s great that people have seen something in me and given me the confidence to continue. I now have a direction in life – I know it’s a cliché but the course has been life changing.”
Curriculum Manager Michael Dixon said: “We are absolutely delighted to have our exhibition at the art gallery. We have never had an exhibition here before and we hope it’s the first of many.
“This is our first year of delivering University of the Arts London courses and it’s been a tremendous success. UAL is very well recognised within the arts sector and these students have a superb name to put down on their CVs.”
Events Manager Mark Blackstock said: “This gallery is owned for the people of Wolverhampton so I am really pleased these young people have had the opportunity to exhibit here. I’m sure all these talented students have fantastic careers ahead of them.”
