  • Artists Association of Nantucket Hosts Annual 10 x 10 Open Exhibition in September

    "All artists in the Nantucket community are encouraged to participate."


    Artists Association of Nantucket (AAN) is delighted to announce the opening of the 2022 10 x 10 Open Exhibition in the Cecelia Joyce & Seward Johnson Gallery, 19 Washington Street. Doors open at 10 A.M. on September 9, and the show will be on display through Sunday, October 2.


    The majority of AAN exhibitions feature work solely by AAN artist members; however, this annual 10 x 10 Open Exhibition is open for participation from the entire island community. Each participant may submit up to six pieces of work. 


    Now in its eighteen year, the 10 x 10 Open Exhibition is a popular and beloved AAN tradition, with every piece in the show measuring 10 inches by 10 inches. The work is hung in a grid-like pattern on the walls throughout the two-story gallery.  


    “It is always a fascinating show and amazing to see the many different ways an artist approaches a 10 x 10 canvas, all the same size yet each piece has its own individual character,” said Peter J. Greenhalgh AAN gallery director.  “The walls are literally covered in a mosaic pattern that is not often seen in galleries. It is a favorite among our artists as well as our visitors, who come to the gallery to see the works done by their friends, neighbors, and community members.”


    A stone’s throw from Main Street, the award-winning Cecelia Joyce & Seward Johnson Gallery is one of the most comprehensive venues for local art, and this season we’re also exhibiting work at our Big Gallery, upstairs at 12 Straight Wharf.


    10 x 10 Open will be on display from Friday September 9 – October 3, at the Cecelia Joyce & Seward Johnson Gallery, located at 19 Washington Street, in the heart of Nantucket’s Cultural District. Open Tuesday – Saturday, 10 A.M. – 5 P.M. (closed 2- 2:30), and Sunday, 10 A.M. – 4 P.M.
