Inmate art show set for Oct 26-28 in Winston-Salem

WINSTON SALEM – The North Carolina Division of Prisons will hold its 2004 Prison Art Show October 26-28 at Market Place Mall in Winston-Salem.  More than 90 works of art created by North Carolina prison inmates will be on display.

Entries will be judged in three categories: painting, drawing and mixed media.  Judges will select the top five entries in each category.  A “best of show” award will be determined by local judges from Forsyth County and a “people’s choice” award will be selected by the votes of people attending the art show.

“The art show is a wonderful opportunity for the inmates to show the public their talents and skills in the arts.  Many of the inmate artists are from the Forsyth County area.” said Yvonne King, program coordinator for prisons in the Piedmont region.

This year’s art show is coordinated by employees at Forsyth Correctional Center in Winston-Salem.  For more information contact Yvonne King in the Division of Prisons - Piedmont Region Office (336) 996-4398 or Elizabeth Barefoot at Forsyth Correctional Center (336) 896-7041.

Market Place Mall is located at 2101 Peters Creek Parkway in Winston-Salem.
