Our Artist of the Month for May 2017 is Arthur Mactaggart.
Arthur first became interested in painting for therapeutic reasons while serving a sentence at Dartmoor Prison. Now as an ex-offender, art remains an important part of Arthur's life and he creates powerful paintings which explore issues surrounding mental health and isolation.
Arthur's painting 'The Act' (pictured right) was selected for inclusion in our upcoming exhibition Alternative Visions: Undiscovered Art in the South West which will tour the South West of England from 3 June 2017 to 20 May 2018.
