    Nicola White – Death Row Art

    The “ArtReach” Exhibition of artwork by 20 San Quentin Death Row prisoners came about following Nicola White’s correspondence with a prisoner on death row (she has had a penfriend there for 6 years). The aim is to give prisoners on death row the chance to share their creativity with the outside world and also to highlight the importance of creativity to those experiencing difficult circumstances.

    The following link is a piece Nicola wrote for the National Alliance for Arts in Criminal Justice:

    There will be another “ArtReach” Exhibition in the St Andrews Art Centre in Gravesend during the weekend of 17th and 18th September from 10am to 6pm on the Saturday and Sunday.
