Work in community


Melbourne Rd Art & Canvas Stretching has the great pleasure of supporting the Torch with it’s Statewide Indigenous Arts in Prison & Community Program (SAIPC) since 2011.

Our role is in part, to send out post release Art Packs with professional quality art supplies including paints, brushes and canvas.

It is very rewarding work when we personally connect with the Artists, help them choose materials and support their journey.  We also supply several Victorian prisons with quality canvas and paints.

 Equally important is stretching the many and varied works of art produced through   the program and giving them the best presentation possible.  Clever stretching is   transformational for even the most unusual shapes and sizes.                                   Our skills have been finely honed. 

The year’s work is shown in a major exhibition open to the public called Confined.  But there are many satellite exhibitions run throughout the year. 

 You can see the works and purchase from the Torch website

100% of the proceeds goes back to the Artist.

 We are also privileged to work for other Community groups and professional galleries & organisations.
