    Artists Association of Nantucket Hosts
    Holiday Small Works Exhibition
    Exceptional art at exceptional prices.

    Frothy eggnog, steaming mulled cider, softly falling snow, cozy fires; holly, winterberries, sleigh
    bells, quiet streets; a windswept harbor, flaming plum puddings; festive art and unique gifts–all
    signs of a Nantucket holiday.

    The Artists Association of Nantucket (AAN) is delighted to announce the opening of the annual
    Holiday Small Works exhibition with a festive evening reception on Friday, November 29,
    5:30-7:30 P.M. A second reception, the Cool Yule Party is planned for Friday, December 6,
    also 5:30-7:30 P.M. Both receptions are free and open to the public.

    Showcasing gifts of oil paintings, watercolors, ceramics, photographs, island-themed jewelry, and
    wooden and cast glass sculptures in the Cecelia Joyce & Seward Johnson Gallery, 19
    Washington Street, the exhibition will be on display through December 24, with the Cool Yule
    party taking place on Friday, December 6, 5:30-7:30 P.M.

    “This is a long-standing holiday tradition for the island community, and we feel supporting local
    Nantucket artists is a particularly meaningful way to kick off the holiday season,” said AAN
    executive director Courtney Bridges. “With over three hundred artist members in our
    organization, there is a wide variety of beautiful work from which to choose. I can’t think of a
    better holiday present than a one-of-a-kind gift of art.”

    “All of the work has a size restriction of 12 x 16 inches or smaller, so for those wishing to give
    holiday gifts of art or with limited wall space, this is the ideal exhibition to find that perfect
    piece,” said AAN gallery manager Peter J. Greenhalgh.

    “There are two Solo Show Spotlight Artists during this exhibition — long-time AAN artist
    member Robert Frazier, and his wife, ceramicist Karol Lindquist. We are so pleased to be able
    to feature the work of this creative pair,” added Greenhalgh.

    Generous support of the exhibition comes from our friends at Quidley & Company.
    The Holiday Small Works exhibition will be on display from November 29 through December
    24 at the Cecelia Joyce & Seward Johnson Gallery, 19 Washington St., in the heart of
    Nantucket’s Cultural District. The gallery is open Monday – Saturday, 10 A.M. – 5 P.M., closed
    2-2:30, Sundays, 11 A.M. – 4 P.M.
