Faces in the frame
Some of Ponsonby’s wellknown faces are now behind bars. The Celebrities in the Cells exhibition features portraits of notable Auckland people with strong Ponsonby connections and is being displayed in Artstation’s old cell block. The Ponsonby Rd building is a former police barracks. The cells, including a padded room, are now available as artist space and for exhibitions. The portraits are the work of the Ponsonby Portrait Group which meets weekly at the Ponsonby Community Centre. It runs until Saturday at 1 Ponsonby Rd.
