Just Let me Go by Korrey Tackett


I'm just thankful to have an outlet to get my artwork outside of the facility. My work means the world to me and without it, things might've been a little harder during my time here. So thank you. To my family: Christina, Kobey, Kyana, I LOVE AND MISS YOU!

Sierra Nevada by Seyka


I am new to painting. I started painting on canvas or board in January 2010. I have been self taught and have studied paintings of the old masters, like DaVinci, Rembrandt, and Poussin. I recently started doing portraits and am always looking for a challenge. I’ve found that I’m good at painting anything that I look at. I am also looking for tips and pointers on painting techniques since I am self taught and often wonder if my style is at all right?

I think the best way to describe my art is prison introspection. The concepts I come up with are facts of everyday life with a prison slant put on them, it could be love, relationships, memories of fun times, are the things I see other deal with in their lives; I then try to put it all together in my own style. I know my art isn’t really something people show on their walls, what I do hope is that the quality and creativity of my work is looked at and leaves the viewer impressed with my skill, while I try to find my niche when it comes to this art thing.

Second Chance by Montney

Second Chance by Montney


"Second Chance" - The idea for this drawing came from the recent Supreme Court ruling in the case of Miller vs. Alabama. This case affects the way that courts sentence juveniles to life without parole. It is what has been called the "Second Chance" law. It has taken at least 10 years and much research to get at least this far. Over these years many have lost themselves and their hope of ever getting out of prison alive, while others have continued to make the mental transition from doom and gloom in order for a shot at freedom and redemption. Still others have been at the fore font with a positive attitude sounding the bell that maybe one day a second chance would come. These figures are represented in this drawing. One figure is buried beneath the gears and cogs of not only the justice system but his own mistakes and poor judgments. Another figure makes the climb to higher ground; while his journey is twisting and turning, his goal is clear. The last figure is sounding the bell, confident and ready for a new beginning in life. The desolate cell block is a reminder of the past when this man was touted by those in power as a super predator to the masses in order to fuel the prison building boom. This fictional beast never showed as the politicians once promised. Now these blocks stand empty, hulking remnants of when these were to be stacked upon each other.

One Last Look by R.K.

One Last Look by R.K.


The artwork "One Last Look" is a work of art that doesn't speak directly to difference of race, but encompasses the concept under the term of cultural difference. The work highlights a  young lady who is running off from (home) a lifestyle that she have had her life fill of. She is taking one last look because she loves her family, but realizes other cultures (people's lifestyle) lies ahead which would better suit her. 

Many people in this country have taken this plunge, some with success, and other with disaster. But it is this in all of us which has pushed humanity to this present day of civility. "Necessity" in this case has become the mother of creation for her upcoming new world.

I've been drawing for many years and prefer graphite for a medium. Every time I draw a piece, I'm learning more about the limitless ways to use graphite. I would recommend anyone that is interested in the arts to pursue it with graphite.

A Modern Day American Impression by Scribbles


I painted this to give a viewpoint of what I see on the American immigration policies of our time today. It seems to be a political topic that never has ever been settled completely or even addressed completely without issue to a campaign. If you want the minority vote, promise immigration reform. My family like most (on mom's side) has been through a lot of ups and downs with this issue so it directly relates to me. On my dad's side they always say "Why don't everyone just go home and then it will be settled." They are Native American... or American Indians. So I painted... A Jewish person, an Arabic person, a Chinese person, and a couple of Latino people. These represent some immigrants. Then I drew and painted a little girl with her "Anchor" teddy bear to represent the Anchor children. Also a broken welcome sign that is faltering on down. Also a door that goes nowhere. Finally an open door that has a sign by it that points to it and says "Enter". Although we are all still wait...and waiting...and waiting for someone to move in Washington so that the people...waiting...can finally (again) start going through it. As for the main character in the painting; she's got an American flag on the chest of her shirt. She's got a semi-smile. She's got hope still that someday, by God's will, it will all be ok. So she too can get an education., find a good job...an start really living...All of our same goals. Living the American dream. Whatever that means to you.
