Students share their artwork in public exhibition at The Wilson Art Gallery and Museum

Six students from University of Gloucestershire have been selected to display their artwork at a public exhibition at The Wilson Art Gallery and Museum in Cheltenham.

PINK features work by Emily Goodchild (Fine Art), Georgina Mullins (Illustration), Jenny Bell (Fine Art), Jimmy Fletcher (Photography: Editorial and Advertising), Jo Hepburn (Fine Art) and Maris Lambie (Fashion Design).

PINK, which runs until 30 July 2023, is a collaborative project between the University and The Wilson that provides students and recent graduates with an opportunity to present work selected from the University’s Arts degree shows, to a public audience.

The new exhibition – curated for The Wilson by creative producers Rhia Davenport and Megan Humphreys – showcases the students’ innovative approaches to making and exploring surface, texture, material and storytelling, including the use of video and sculpture to bring together the familiar with the extraordinary.

Dr James Fisher, Academic Course Leader for Fine Art, said: “We’re delighted to be collaborating with our partners at The Wilson to provide visitors with an opportunity to experience and enjoy our students’ thought-provoking and imaginative work.

“The exhibition provides our students with a fantastic space in which to share their ideas, communicate their thoughts and engage with visitors to The Wilson through their art.”

The Wilson – Gloucestershire’s premier art gallery and museum – is home to an internationally significant museum collection including archives relating to Antarctic explorer Edward A Wilson, who was born and lived in Cheltenham, after whom it is named.
