Students celebrate success at end of year show

Students from the University of Wolverhampton’s Faculty of Arts are showcasing work they’ve created during their degree studies – and it’s sure to be a draw locally.

The Faculty of Arts Degree Show 2018 is open to the public from Saturday 9th June until Wednesday 20th June. The exhibition will be on display at the Wolverhampton School of Art, George Wallis Building, Molineux Street, Wolverhampton, WV1 1DT.

This year, artwork from over 100 students across 16 degree courses will be on display, covering the areas of applied arts, digital media, fashion and textiles, fine art, graphic communication, illustration, interior design, photography and product design.

The School has exhibited over 8,000 students' work since opening its doors at the first degree show in 1969, and has featured some of the brightest new artists and designers in the country. 

Sam Hope, Head of the Wolverhampton School of Art, said:  “Our celebratory end of year show is a chance for students to experience first-hand what it’s like to create their own display in a gallery environment. Not only have they crafted and developed ideas, they also learn what kind of work goes into organising and creating a professional exhibition.

“Once again our students have shown outstanding levels of creativity during the course of their studies. They have created some fantastic pieces of work across a variety of disciplines which I’m sure will be enjoyed by everyone who takes the time to come along and view the work.”

Entry is free and open to everyone Monday to  Saturday from 10.00 am until 4.00 pm.  The exhibition will be closed on Sundays.
