Dr Craig Staff, MA Fine Art Programme Leader at the University, said: “The exhibition showcases a breadth of enquiry, with students producing work across various media and disciplines. Although individual students’ practices engage with differing issues, themes and ideas, what remains consistent are marked levels of professionalism, creativity and innovation.”

One of the featured artists is Paula Le Baigue, who has created a series of oil paintings depicting women jailed for murdering their partners.

Convergence opens with a preview evening, from 6pm to 9pm on Tuesday 17 September, in the Walgrave building, St George’s Avenue, NN2 6JD. The exhibition is then open daily, between 10am and 4pm, until Tuesday 24 September.
