“Columbia Historic Market House is celebrating the end of summer and the beginning of the school year with an ‘End of Summer Bash’. On Saturday, August 19th 11am to 1pm. Games will be held and prizes given out will be school supplies that were donated by the stand holders.

“On Fourth Friday this month, Friday, August 25th 5pm to 8pm, we are welcoming United Artists Behind Bars. Sheri Williams is bringing a large assortment of watercolors and pen & ink drawings. The U.A.B.B. was founded by Sheri Williams President/C.E.O., and its co-founders in 2013. While her son was incarcerated, she has seen him and other inmates have artistic talents in which there was no outlets to share with others on the outside world. Sheri wanted to make a change to show others from the inside out what talents prisoners do have to offer through art. Their Motto is that ‘We Promote Change Through Art’, which means change within one’s self with wanting to become a productive member of society while still in prison, making a financial gain for yourself through the sales of art, and helping others to succeed through your artistic talents. As Founder, President/C.E.O. of the U.A.B.B., Sheri welcomes all and other talented prisoners alike to join with us [U.A.B.B.], show the world your creative abilities, and through you a difference can be made by promoting a change through art.

“The Columbia Historic Market House will also become their home to display the vast array of artistic work. – submitted news release
