THE MERIDIAN School's annual art exhibition has once more seen pupils produce an array of interesting pieces.
The exhibition showcases art produced by students at the Royston school working towards GCSE and A-level exams.
And friends, parents, and residents attended a public viewing.
Phil Cunningham, head of art, organised the exhibition with the help of art teacher Tessa Bath.
"As ever, the standard of work is excellent. We try to teach the students the technical skills involved, but they have to provide the ideas and the inspiration," he said.
Mr Cunningham explained that the GCSE students work is based on the topics they have covered during the last two years.

He said: "One of the topics was 'The way we live', which focussed on the world around us.
"Students have interpreted this in a number of different ways, either looking at buildings and structures, or placing themselves in a fantasy environment."
Other work sees students drawing on the influence of artists such as Paul Cezanne, Pieter Mondriaan, and Henri Matisse.
