MANCHESTER, NH – Art imitates life. It also celebrates it – even in the most dire of circumstances.
Join the Manchester Arts Commission on Oct. 19 for a reception celebrating the lives of those lost to addiction in a month-long exhibition by artist Anne Marie Farley Zanfagna. Her “Angels of Addictions portraits chronicle the human cost of the ongoing opioid epidemic.
A reception will be held at Manchester City Hall, hosted by The Manchester Arts Commission, on Oct. 19 from 5-7 p.m. The exhibition will remain on display at City Hall for the month.
Meet Zanfagna and discuss her portraits, and the ongoing opioid epidemic. Also in attendance will be Mary Ellen D’Angelo Lombari, who will be reading select poems from her collection, which will soon be released in a book in collaboration with Zanfagna and her portraits. It is called “Portraits, Poems, and Heroin: Thirty Souls Tell Their Story.” There will be light refreshments.
