Illustration students from the University of Worcester will be showcasing their work in the centre of the City next month.
Twenty-four second year students will be exhibiting their work at the Cathedral Plaza for almost a week.
The opening night takes place on Tuesday, May 1st with a special reception from 6pm. The exhibition then opens for public viewings from the Thursday, May 3rd until Monday, May 7th.
Illustration course leader Piet Grobler said: “There will be some very imaginative pieces of work on display; everything from classic storybook illustration to more contemporary pieces, including a performance and projection.
“We hope members of the public will come along and see how talented our students are.”
The students’ work is part of a module called Visual Statement, in which students have the freedom to find their own path in illustration with no set brief. On display will be a selection of illustrations, paintings and animated short films, covering many mediums and genres, such as storybook, abstract, graphic novel, folk art and many more.
