An exhibition of artworks by the men and women in Canterbury Prisons has opened at Oxford Gallery, North Canterbury.
INSIDEART Creativity Knows No Bounds showcases over 50 artworks, including paintings, pencil drawings, sculpture and carving from Christchurch Men’s Prison, Christchurch Women’s Prison and Rolleston Prison.
“I’m really proud to have my work in a gallery,” says a contributing artist. “It’s given me confidence that my drawings are something people would like to look at. I told my mum too – she is really proud of me, especially because I gave my art to raise money for charity.”
Artworks are on display and sale at the gallery and online, with proceeds going to the Canterbury West Coast Air Rescue Trust, a charity chosen by contributing artists from Christchurch Men’s Prison, for the service they offer the community.
