    PORTSMOUTH– The New Hampshire Art Association presents its 43rd annual juried Jack Parfitt photo exhibit during the month of August.
     
    Located at the Robert Lincoln Levy Gallery in Portsmouth, NH, this exhibit is one of NHAA's most prestigious exhibits of the year. It is held annually in honor of Jack Parfitt, one of NHAA’s founders, to commemorate his photographic excellence.
     
    The theme this year is “New Work.” It is easy to get into a photographic rut – but then came COVID. Photographers were asked to reflect this in their entries. Hence the evocative theme. 

    This year’s juror, Stephen DiRado, chose 88 entries out of 193 submissions.

    First, second and third place prizes, as well as honorable mentions will be awarded during an opening reception Friday, Aug. 5 at the Levy Gallery.
     
    There will also be a Lotte Jacobi Award presented by fine art photographer Gary Samson, New Hampshire’s seventh Artist Laureate and Professor Emeritus of Photography at the New Hampshire Institute of Art.
