The first professional works by Wrexham Glyndwr University graduates to go on public display are now available for viewing at the 2017 School of Creative Arts Graduation Show.

The annual show opened on Tuesday 30 May this year, featuring a broad wealth of creativity, skills and expertise from courses ranging from Animation and Graphic Design, to Film, Photography and Fine Art. 

Alec Shepley, Head of the School of Creative Arts, said: “There has been much talk and concrete action of late, to develop the notion of the 21st century art school and to consider its relationship with the world.

“I still firmly believe that creativity does not simply mirror the world – it actually plays a fundamentally crucial role in shaping and creating our world and showing us the right path.

“I am reminded of this on a daily basis here in my job at Wrexham Glyndwr and I am confident our graduates will play their roles to the full in the development of the creative industries within the region and beyond.”

The 2017 Graduation Show is open to the public free of charge, weekdays from Tuesday 30 May to Friday 16 June, from 10am to 4pm, at the university's Regent Street campus.

Special arrangements can be made on request for schools, colleges and larger groups who wish to visit.

The exhibition will also be open on Saturday 10 June from 10am to 2pm for the Wrexham Glyndwr University Open Day, where a range of tours and interactive activities will also be taking place.
