St Mary’s Calne Artists have generously supported the latest Erlestoke Prison (Wiltshire) fundraising initiative to create sporting facilities at the site by contributing original artworks for cARTes postales ‘Art on Postcards’, alongside works by professional Artists, which include that of Antony Gormley. The pieces will be auctioned and the proceeds will go towards this worthwhile cause.
An amazing array of leading and local artists, writers, actors and musicians (including Marika Hackman) and other talented people, have generously created unique artwork on a postcard for this initiative by The Friends of Erlestoke Prison and The Salisbury Museum. Purchasing a postcard voucher could mean becoming the owner of a postcard.
Postcards created include those pictured by St Mary’s pupils, Nina Waterlow (Year 12 Scholar) and Gigi Lane (Year 11 Artist).
‘It is wonderful that our Artists recognise the local opportunities that benefit the wider community, to be thinking, making, ethical artists.’ Kimberley Appleyard Pallot, Director of Art at St Mary’s Calne, commented.
Further information about this initiative by The Friends of Erlestoke Prison and The Salisbury Museum can be found on the The Salisbury Museum website, where postcard vouchers are available for the public to buy online. The allocation of vouchers to postcards will be randomly generated on 29th October and postcards dispatched to their lucky recipients by the end of October.
