Councillor John Reynolds, City of Wolverhampton 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."

Among artists exhibiting is Kennedy Jayne Glews, who is studying for an MA in Design and Applied Arts, Fashion in Fashion and Textiles. Kennedy, is also the owner of a dance school and teaches in Fashion and Textiles.

She has created a piece called ‘Art of Movement’ which includes moving parts.

Kennedy said:

“I wanted to re-invent the connection between costume and dancing and make the costume part of the performance, as well as enhancing the movement of the dancers when they are on stage. By adding light and flexibility to the costumes it marries the two for the performers and the audience.”
