More information about the gallery

Does the gallery only exhibit art from Long Bay Gaol?

Most of the gallery’s art is made at Long Bay Gaol but some comes from other Correctional Centres across Sydney and NSW. The gallery also supports inmates post-release by continuing to sell their art.

What percentage of the sale price goes back to the artist?

75% of the sale price goes back to the inmate. Inmates can access this money while they are in gaol or they can send this money to their families or buy their next canvas to paint on. 25% of the sale price contributes to the gallery running costs.

How are the prices determined?

The prices are set by the inmate in collaboration with gallery staff.

Does the gallery exhibit in locations other than Long Bay?

Yes, the gallery does pop-up exhibitions for NAIDOC week, conferences, fund raisers, markets. Please contact the gallery for further information.
