    AAN to Host Two Exhibitions in One

    Works on Paper is open to all Island Artists

    In the Cecelia Joyce & Seward Johnson Gallery


    The Artists Association of Nantucket (AAN) is pleased to announce the opening of the Earth & Sky exhibition, concurrently with a special month-long Works on Paper show on the second floor. Both exhibitions will launch on Friday, April 22 in the Cecelia Joyce & Seward Johnson Gallery, 19 Washington Street


    This is the first time since the pandemic that AAN is hosting two different shows within the gallery. “We are delighted to offer this early spring exhibition with two distinctly different shows on each floor, providing a wonderful opportunity for both our artist members, island artists, and the viewing public,” said AAN artistic director & curator Robert Frazier. 


    Earth & Sky is a show that will focus on the colors of the island as spring awakens and will be on display until Saturday May 21; the second floor month-long Works on Paper exhibition is open to all island artists and will feature collages, fine prints, mixed media, watercolors, pastels, anything produced on paper.  “We truly do not know what people will bring in for the Works on Paper show, but the possibilities are endless,” added Frazier.  Drop off of art for the open show, Works on Paper, will be Tuesday, April 19 from 11 A.M. – 5 P.M. at 19 Washington Street.  Works on paper submitted for the open show should be exhibition ready. 


    A stone’s throw from Main Street, the AAN has close to three hundred local artist members who participate throughout the year in numerous changing exhibitions, and help make the Cecelia Joyce & Seward Johnson Gallery an award-winning gallery (“Best Of” from I&M and Best New England Gallery, Yankee Magazine).  


    “Being one of the most comprehensive venues for local art, our broad cross section of artist’s work includes everything from jewelry, oil paintings, watercolors, ceramics, sculptures, mixed media, photographs, and some textiles,” said AAN gallery director Peter J. Greenhalgh.  


    Earth & Sky and Works on Paper will be on display from Friday April 22 – May 21, at the Cecelia Joyce & Seward Johnson Gallery, located at 19 Washington Street, in the heart of Nantucket’s Cultural District. Open Tuesday – Saturday, 11 A.M. – 5 P.M. (Closed Sundays & Mondays until the end of May).
