Another Wonderful Awards Reception for Manchester, NH

Coordinator Vicki Ferraro has organized the City of Manchester’s NAP Exhibition for five years running. This year was their Ninth Annual Exhibit and another successful show was proudly displayed in the City Hall Art on The Wall Gallery. A total of 142 pieces were hung including an amazing and unusual painting by Brett Parenteau, the relative of a School District employee, which won both First Place and Best of Show.

The awards reception that was held on July 24th was attended once again by Mayor Ted Gatsas. Vicki organizes a phenomenal awards reception every year with all of the extra touches that make the artists feel honored to participate. The City of Manchester also made excellent use of their Non-Matching NAP Award this year. Funds went towards everything from reception expenses to printed materials, exhibit rental fees, Judges Honorariums and professional photography.
