MANCHESTER, NH –  Anne Marie Zanfagna is a New Hampshire artist whose daughter Jackie succumbed to heroin addiction. After Jackie passed away in 2014, Anne Marie found it difficult to paint. Now, Anne Marie, from Plaistow, has a new passion. She founded Angels of Addictions, a charity that raises awareness of New Hampshire’s biggest problem and its victims. Anne Marie paints portraits of Jackie and other Granite Staters who have lost their lives to drugs, portraying them at their most vibrant.

Congressman Frank Guinta, Chairman of the Bipartisan Task Force to Combat the Heroin Epidemic, will host a  showing of Anne Marie’s work at his Manchester office Aug. 31. At the impromptu gallery, the artist is scheduled to present an original work to another survivor of New Hampshire’s heroin crisis. In May, she visited Washington, D.C., to urge Congress to pass the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act, after Rep. Guinta led passage of a slate of House bills.

The showing is free and open to the public.
