The gallery has invited students from the City of Wolverhampton College and city schools to submit their best pieces for show in a series of regular exhibitions.

Dedicated space in the sculpture gallery and popular café has been made available for the students' artworks.

Photography, sculpture, drawings, paintings and textiles will all feature in the Young Artists series, which kicks off with a month long show of work from the City of Wolverhampton College.

The college will display work through October and there will then be month long opportunities for other schools to take part. Work from St Matthias, Heath Park and Colton Hills is already lined up.

Councillor John Reynolds, cabinet member for City Economy, said; "This will give our talented aspiring artists the opportunity to see their work presented in the city's flagship space for visual art."

Young Artists: City of Wolverhampton College launches today (Monday 3 October) and runs until 31 October.
