The City of Raleigh and Wake County, NC hosted their Eighth Annual NAP Exhibition this year. The exhibition was once again organized by Hannah Costner, the Block Gallery Coordinator, who did a fantastic job. With nearly twenty different departments represented by the 78 pieces of artwork, there was a wonderful mix of work from all categories.

The National Arts Program® is truly about bringing art forward and honoring employees and their families. Brian Soles, pictured above with his niece who is the subject of his painting, is a great example of this.

Helping to emphasize the importance of this show, Eleanor Oakley, President & CEO of the United Arts Council of Raleigh and Wake County and June Guealnick, the Executive Director of the Raleigh Arts Commission, were both on hand at the awards reception to congratulate the artists and their families.
