COURTYARD PANEL PROJECT
South Coast Correctional Centre Inmates

Courtyard

The South Coast Correctional Centre commenced operation in 2010 catering primarily to inmates from the South Coast, between Helensburgh and the Victorian border. Inmates are encouraged to develop increased levels of self-responsibility and to improve motivation to participate in offence-related, transitional and resettlement programs. Opportunities are provided for their participation in education, work, vocational training and programs.

Signalling the beginning of ongoing collaborations between South Coast Correctional Centre and Shoalhaven City Arts Centre, you are invited to the first exhibition of panel artworks lining the walls of the gallery courtyard. Each panel showcases works from inmates at the centre in South Nowra under the education program. The Courtyard Gallery exhibition is a hint of what is to come in 2015. We thank all participating inmates and invite family, friends and visitors to enjoy the artworks while sitting in the Art Centre Courtyard during the summer months. The Shoalhaven City Arts Centre acknowledges the involvement of Tanya Bennett and Randall Sinnamon in bringing this project to the public.

See the opening talk and take the tour of the Courtyard Panel Project - South Coast Correctional Centre Inmates.

LANDSCAPES AND INTERIORS
ELISABETH CUMMINGS

Main Gallery, Foyer Gallery, Access Gallery

Elisabeth Cummings is one of Australia's the most respected artists, though for most of her artistic life the respect and celebration of her talents has been by her peers, it is only in the last few years that the “market” has discovered that Elisabeth Cummings is one of the greatest artists this country has produced. This exhibition brings to the Shoalhaven a survey of her more recent paintings inspired by still life and the landscape. Curated by Max Dingle, in collaboration with King Street Gallery on William.

Warwick Keen is a Kamilaroi artist and TAFE teacher now based in the Shoalhaven area. Warwick's work has been featured in many of the NSW Parliament Aboriginal Art Prize exhibitions.
