Wolverhampton Art Gallery, in Lichfield Street, is hosting the show featuring the work of more than 50 MA students from the Fine Art, Applied Arts and Digital and Visual Communication courses as well as the university's artists in residence.

Visitors will be treated to diversity in creative thinking in painting, sculpture, glass, ceramics, installations, graphics, photography, illustration, audio visual and multi media.

Among artists exhibiting is Joanne Burgess, 44, from Stourbridge, (pictured) who has completed her masters in Design and Applied Arts. Joanne's installation focuses on altered states and uses a spiral of handmade and designed gothic inspired wallpapers.

Councillor John Reynolds, cabinet member for City Economy, said: "The artworks cover a diverse body of work and I am delighted the university's MA Show is once again at the gallery. I would also like to wish all the students taking part continued success in their creative careers."

The MA Degree show is the culmination of work created by the university's masters students. It launches on Saturday 1 October and runs until Monday 10 October and is free.
