St Mary’s 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.
'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.
The postcards created for the fundraiser will be on display on St Mary's Calne Art instagram page: artatstmaryscalne and the selection of postcards can also be seen on Instagram by visiting cartes_postales_wiltshire
