    Artists Association of Nantucket
    Hosts Blue Periods exhibition
    Cecelia Joyce & Seward Johnson Gallery
     
    Green leaves and spring blues, sparkling seas, cobalt skies, the first blue buds cascading from window boxes; The Artists Association of Nantucket (AAN) is pleased to announce the month-long exhibition entitled Blue Periods will be on display in the Cecelia Joyce & Seward Gallery at 19 Washington Street from Friday, May 28 – June 28. The gallery will be open Tuesday – Saturday 11 A.M. – 5 P.M. (Closed Sundays & Mondays).
     
    “This first floor exhibition will stress the colors found in nature with a special focus on blues, which we thought timely and appropriate for the start of the warmer season ahead,” said AAN gallery manager Peter J. Greenhalgh.  “The start of a new season is always exciting and we thought this a great opportunity to provide our artists the chance to showcase some of their newest works,” added Greenhalgh.
     
    Each artist has been invited to bring in two pieces, and their works include everything from oil paintings, watercolors, pastels, ceramics, works in wood, mixed media, and photographs,” said AAN artist director Robert Frazier.  
     
    An additional gallery feature during this exhibition will be the display of works completed during the 10th annual Plein Air Nantucket Festival, a painting festival running May 11 - June 16. This special adjunct of the gallery exhibition will showcase works done by artists who have been painting among the wilds of Nantucket. Upon completion, the new works will be hung daily in a portion of the second floor of the gallery, through June 28. The Plein Air Nantucket Festival is graciously supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency, through its Festival Program.
     
    Blue Periods will be on display from Friday May 28 – June 28, at the Cecelia Joyce & Seward Johnson Gallery, located at 19 Washington Street, a stone’s throw from Main Street in the heart of Nantucket’s Cultural District. Open Tuesday – Saturday, 11 A.M. – 5 P.M. (Closed Sundays & Mondays).  In June the gallery will also be open on Mondays.
