Exhibition of prisoner art

Artwork by women in Surrey prisons and others in contact with the criminal justice system is the subject of a touring exhibition in libraries.

The New Beginnings Art Awards, Sugar and Spice exhibition will take to the road following a successful showcase at the Lightbox in Woking.

Surrey libraries are working with Woking Borough Council to showcase the artistic talent. Participation and achievement in the arts motivates, inspires and helps troubled women to develop the skills needed to lead a more positive life.

The tour is currently at Horley library and will remain there until Thursday 1 November. It will then travel to:

• Horley library from Wednesday 24 October – Thursday 1 November 2012
• Oxted library from Saturday 3 November – Thursday 15 November 2012
• Godalming library from Saturday 17 November – Thursday 29 November 2012
• Guildford library from Saturday 1 December – Thursday 13 December 2012
