Insider Art: Spring 2016
3 September – 27 November
Untitled Landscape, acrylic on canvas
A joint initiative between the Department of Corrective Services and Fremantle Prison, Insider Art: Spring 2016 showcases the creative achievements of inmates currently serving sentences in Western Australian prisons. A range of educational programs, from recreational courses to university level qualifications, allows prisoners to commence an arts education while incarcerated, with some carrying their study through to degree level. For many it is their first positive educational experience and can be a means to strengthen ties with families, communities, culture and country. It can even offer possibilities for further study or employment upon release.
The exhibition will be free of charge and many of the works will be available for purchase.
