Boom Gate Gallery
Long Bay Correctional Complex has a long tradition of creating significant inmate artwork. Inmates continue to practice art at the complex, with many pieces available for display and sale at the Boom Gate Gallery. You are encouraged to drop into the gallery just for a look.
The Boom Gate Gallery opened at Long Bay Correctional Complex at Matraville in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs in 1992 and since then has sold hundreds of works by inmate artists, including paintings, drawings and sculptures.
Inmates are referred to the gallery by custodial and non-custodial staff, psychologists, welfare and education staff. More than 80 per cent of the works exhibited are created by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander inmates.
For more information or to view and purchase the artwork available for sale, visit the Boom Gate Gallery website.
