Prisoner’s artworks exhibited in Glasgow

The Koestler Exhibition of prisoners’ artwork at Glasgow’s Tramway is running until 25 November. The event is staged by Koestler Trust, the UK’s best-known prison arts charity, which is in its 50th year of promoting prisoner art. The charity encourages creativity within prisons to boost rehabilitation. The artwork exhibited includes a compelling watercolour called ‘Disco Boy’, a haunting work called ‘Winter’s Crown’ and a painted tribute to the Duke of Wellington which is placed outside Glasgow’s Gallery of Modern Art. Some of the entries were of such a high calibre they will be entered into this year’s Koestler Awards, set up by Arthur Koestler who campaigned for the abolition of capital punishment.
