Two artists have collaborated a selection of their works for a joint exhibition now open in the Greyfriars Art Space in St James Street.

Tom Thompson has contributed his ceramics and mixed media works to the display with John Lawson's paintings and collages on the walls.

The pieces have been arranged around the space according to their style and colour scheme.

Mr Lawson said: 'Even though we both use very different mediums in our work, we found the pieces do have certain similarities and work well next to each other. So we have called the exhibition 'Convergence' to reflect that aspect.'

Among the items on display includes a piece by Thompson titled 'Lost Hope'. The overall piece depicts a ship at sea and individual nails in the wooden base represents a migrant lost at sea.

'I think this piece shows everything that's happening now with the migrant crisis,' he said.

The exhibition is open Tuesday-Saturday between 10am and 4pm until 25 June. Admission is free.
