Talented art students are set to reveal the best of their work to the public at an annual degree show.

The show at Glyndŵr University’s North Wales School of Art and Design on Regent Street in Wrexham will open next week, and will reflect the broad range of skills and interests of students.

It will be packed with paintings, videos, installations and sculptures as well as photography and examples of printmaking. 

The show will also offer an insight in to the entire process of becoming a working artist, something which John McClenaghen, programme leader for fine art, said was vital to the university’s ethos.

He added: “By the time they leave here students know what it means to be a professional artist.

“We believe it’s important to equip our students with the professional skills they need to make their way in a competitive world.”

The degree show runs between Wednesday, 6 June and Friday, 15 June and is open to the public on weekdays between 10am and 4pm.

Previous Glyndŵr University students who’ve exhibited at the show have gone on to make waves in the art world, working with galleries such as Tate Liverpool and Oriel Mostyn, while others have won significant prizes or gone in to teaching.
