Send Art


An amazing exhibition of the paintings by the women of Send Prison in an exhibition I visited yesterday. Thus was the inspiration of the women themselves and of Sally Varah (High Sheriff in 2008). The project was keenly supported by the Governor Carlene Dixon. The weekly Watts Gallery workshops at HMP Send (funded by the Michael Varah Memorial Fund and reaching 2,000 women over 10 years) )  were a key ingredient to building the skills and confidence of the artists. A very high standard of art was on display and for sale. I succumbed to “To Infinity and Beyond”.
