    Artists Association of Nantucket
    Hosts Long Hot Summer exhibition
    Cecelia Joyce & Seward Johnson Gallery
     
     
    As the island heads into its high season and the sun shines brighter and the humidity becomes more frequent, The Artists Association of Nantucket (AAN) is pleased to open a new exhibition Long Hot Summer in the Cecelia Joyce & Seward Gallery at 19 Washington Street on Friday, July 30 – August 16. The gallery is open Monday – Saturday 10 A.M. – 5 P.M., until 6 P.M. on Fridays, closed 2 – 2:30. Sunday 11 A.M – 2 P.M.
     
    “Given this is typically the warmest few weeks on the island, we figured this play on words might entice our artists to bring in some art with a summer time feel to it,” said AAN gallery manager Peter J. Greenhalgh.  “The longer days combined with the abundance of flora & fauna in so many of the islands gardens, along with the vast skies and sparkling blue of the sea is a delight to capture for many of our artists,” 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, jewelry and photographs,” said AAN artist director Robert Frazier.  
     
    Long Hot Summer will be on display from Friday July 30 – Monday August 16, 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 Monday – Saturday, 10 A.M. – 5 P.M., Fridays until 6 P.M., Closed 2 – 2:30. Sundays 11 A. M. – 2 P. M.
