Now on Exhibit: Manchester's Masters
Manchester's Masters: The Artist's Perspective

In the Henry M. Fuller State Theatre Gallery in the Millyard Museum
Tuesday-Saturday, 10:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. - Included with museum admission.
Manchester is known not only for its rich industrial history, but also for the amazing men and women that have resided in these city limits. Actors, inventors, athletes and business moguls have all become part of the tapestry that is Manchester.  Lesser known are Manchester's artists: talented, creative individuals with a story to tell. Immortalized by the masterpieces they left behind, each artist has told their story with watercolor, pencil or paint.

The Manchester Historic Association is proud to present, "Manchester's Masters: The Artist's Perspective", featuring the lives and works of Henry W. Herrick, Edward L. Custer, Lisa Anne Fletcher, Omer T. Lassonde and George C. Soule: artists who called Manchester home.

On exhibit through June 30
