Dana by Rebecca Sarah


Rebecca Sarah is one of 15 artists working at Participate Contemporary Art Space in the Riverside Shopping Centre. The space runs as a community interest company, with self-employed artists exhibiting together.

The Dana exhibition was inspired by Rebecca Sarah's visit to the Dana Prison, during which she got an insight into the town's landmark, which Rebecca was personally linked to as a relative was incarcerated there in 2005 and this was where her next door neighbour worked. The exhibition explores Rebbeca's relationship with her incarcerated relative and the building, with paintings telling the story of the night.

The exhibition includes photographs by Peter Williams, a former art teacher at The Dana, showing his time working with inmates.
