Attendees gathered for the wonderful Oakwood Healthcare System, Michigan 2010 NAP Award Reception.
Coordinator Sandra Baughman organized a tremendous show for Oakwood Healthcare System’s Fourth Annual NAP Exhibit. There were 180 artworks displayed, which was a twenty-five percent increase from their previous year.
In November of 2010 Jim Wollenburg took over for our beloved Coordinator Dan Moede, who just retired. We will miss Dan’s dedication and positive attitude, but are looking forward to many years of success with Jim who has just been brought on as the new Recreation Coordinator for the Parks and Recreation Department.
“Cards with Mangosteen”
Amateur Artist, Virginia Palyka, was honored with three separate awards this year at the Fifth Annual Salt Lake County NAP Exhibition. Her photograph entitled “Cards with Mangosteen” (pictured above) won First Place in the Amateur Category, Best of Show, and was also recognized by the Salt Lake County Art Collection Committee and presented a Purchase Award. The photograph will become part of the county’s permanent collection for all to enjoy.
For the past nine years, our Union County, NJ show has been coordinated by Libby Reid, the Arts Coordinator for the Union County Office of Cultural & Heritage Affairs. However, Libby is not only a coordinator, but a practicing artist who understands the importance of showcasing the artistic talent that is inside all of us.
