NH Business in the Arts Awards :: May 17 2010

I was very proud to have attended last nights New Hampshire Business the Arts Awards at the Center of NH.  A room filled with artists and strong supporters of the arts.  I was honored to have the room made aware of who I was, the accomplishments I’ve had since graduating NHIA, and it was nice that all these good people could now put a face to my name, and its fantastic to know I am now on their radar.

Sponsored by the New Hampshire Business Committee for the Arts, the gala honored twenty-nine New Hampshire businesses nominated for this year’s awards. The evening included performances of drama, literature and music. The grand finale was the announcement of the winners, who received a framed print by me.

John Clayton, columnist for The Union Leader, was the master of ceremonies for the festivities. The performers included Camerata New England, The Seacoast Repertory Theatre, poet Alice B. Fogel, fiddler Patrick Ross and The Acting Loft.

The New Hampshire Business Committee for the Arts was founded in 1985 to educate, motivate and recognize business support of and participation in the arts.
