A TRIO of art graduates from the University of Worcester have been picked to have their work included in an exhibition showcasing new talent from the West Midlands.

Csilla Farkas, Cheryl Howard and Sarah Shera have been given the chance to exhibit their work at New Art West Midlands 2014, showcasing artworks at four venues in the county.

The exhibition will include the work of 24 new artists who graduated from one of the region’s undergraduate or postgraduate art degrees over the past three years and is the largest partnership of its kind in England.

Wendy Law of organisers Turning Point West Midlands said: “The West Midlands region has one of the most vibrant and authentic art scenes in the country.

“New Art West Midlands is a unique project, with nationally renowned galleries and our universities in the region working in collaboration.

“Together, we can draw attention to the talent of our emerging artists and offer exciting fresh new voices for our audiences while offering support to artist graduates at a crucial time in their career.”

Five artists in the programme will win an opportunity to undertake an exhibition, residency or project at a West Midlands gallery.

The exhibition begins on Friday, February 14 and will be held at Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery until Sunday, May 18 as well as the University of Birmingham’s Barber Institute of Fine Arts until Sunday, April 27, the city’s Grand Union gallery until Saturday, March 15 and Wolverhampton Art Gallery until Saturday, May 10.
