Dunamaise Arts Centre





UNLOCK is an exhibition at Dunamaise Arts Centre Gallery from 11 January – 29 February. It is a showcase of the work of Irish prisoners and prison teachers revealing a more positive side of prison life. This exhibition provides a unique insight on the number of people in custody who take up art as a means of self-expression and how participation in art and craft classes regularly unlocks genuine talent in prisoners, giving rise to the title of the exhibition and the many impressive examples of stained glass, ceramics, weaving, jewellery, etc., showcased in UNLOCK.
