  • The Artists Association of Nantucket Annual Meeting Artist & Patron Awards

    The Artists Association of Nantucket (AAN) is pleased to announce the 2022 Artist and Patron Awards, presented at the Annual Meeting on Monday, August 15. Chosen by their peers and voted on by AAN Trustees and Board members, the awards were presented to those in attendance by AAN executive director Courtney Bridges and board president Patty Keneally. Many of the awards are named after long-time artist members, and loyal supporters of the AAN. The awards truly reflect the numerous talents of the organization and represent both patrons and long-established artist members, as well as more recently accepted artist members. And for the first time in our AAN history, we introduced a Lifetime Achievement Award.

    “It was such a delight to present these awards at the Annual Meeting, and we are so grateful for the enthusiasm and support of both our artist members as well as our dedicated and robust board. These awards are truly one of the highlights of our meeting, and we congratulate each one of our loyal and devoted winners,” said Courtney Bridges.
