"Art Reach" - Art from Death Row, San Quentin, California

The first leg of a very moving exhibition of works by death row inmates. Not exactly Made in Greenwich, but with a definite Greenwich connection:
Local artist Nicola White has been writing to a prisoner on death row in San Quentin for the last 6 years. Between them they came up with the idea of an art exhibition featuring art and poetry by him and some of his fellow inmates. On display will be also some of their letters and stories. Whatever you feel about the death penalty, the art provides an insight into the thoughts and feelings of men who have been incarcerated, in some cases, for over 30 years.
The works will be for sale and can be collected at the end of the tour, with proceeds going partly to Amicus (lawyers fighting for justice on death row) and partly to buy art materials for the inmates.
Nicola will also be showing some of her own art made from discarded objects collected along the River Thames.
Meet Nicola and a representative from Amicus over a drink on Sunday June 26 between 4 and 7. There will be an opportunity to hear more about the work of Amicus and issues around death row, with a short presentation at 5pm.
Unmissable!
