(Winston-Salem, NC) – Forsyth Tech will hold its second annual Fine Arts Showcase on Tuesday, April 29, from 6 – 8 pm at the college’s West Campus auditorium, 1300 Bolton Street, Winston-Salem.
The Showcase will feature artwork and performances by students enrolled in Drawing, Painting, Sculpture, Acting, and Chorus classes at the college.
The performances will include scene showings from several contemporary plays, an improvisational piece based on the Italian Commedia dell’Arte, and a selection of modern choral compositions.
“The Showcase is a chance to celebrate and enjoy the artistic achievements of those who come to Forsyth Tech to learn more about the arts,” says Marshall Botvinick, program coordinator for the Fine Arts program. “Our program is only in its second year, and we already have 65 students enrolled.”
Botvinick, who has been acting since he was eight years old, has an undergraduate degree in Theater Studies from Duke University and a Master in Fine Arts from the A.R.T. Institute at Harvard University.
The Showcase is free and open to the public.
