    The Artists Association of Nantucket announces
    Jurors’ Choices from the Artist/Patron Exhibition

    The Artists Association of Nantucket (AAN) is pleased to announce the jurors’ choices from the Artist /Patron exhibition. The exhibition was juried by Katie Trinkle Legge, whose choices are highlighted with a gold seal, and will be on display through Monday, September 2.

    “It was such an honor to be asked to jury this amazing body of work. I had to step away from names and see the work for itself, basing my choices on the integrity of the artworks,” said Trinkle Legge. “With over a hundred and fifty works of art displayed between both floors, Katie spent a great deal of time reviewing all the works before choosing their various selections,” said AAN artistic director Robert Frazier. “Her choices truly reflect the diversity of the show and the talents of the artist members,” added Frazier.
