    Quiet beaches, crimson moors, crisp evenings, colorful bittersweet, festive pumpkins; oil paintings, watercolors, ceramics, wood carvings, photographs…….

    Artists Association of Nantucket (AAN) is delighted to be showcasing the 2020 People’s Choice Exhibition, with the doors opening on Friday September 25 in the Cecelia Joyce & Seward Johnson Gallery, 19 Washington Street. The show will be on display through Saturday, October 10.

    “A long standing favorite among our patrons, the People’s Choice exhibition showcases a wide array of styles and mediums and during our 75th anniversary year, I’m sure we’ll see some extra special pieces,” said AAN artistic director Robert Frazier. “This interactive show not only offers the viewer the chance to enjoy the numerous works by our talented artists, they have the additional satisfaction of being a part of the exhibition by being allowed to vote for their favorite work," added Frazier.

    “The AAN includes close to three hundred local artist members and we are grateful they continue to help make our award-winning AAN gallery (I&M and Yankee Magazine) one of the most comprehensive venues for local art. This year, their works include everything from oil paintings, watercolors, ceramics, wood carvings, mixed media and photographs,” said AAN gallery manager Peter J. Greenhalgh. “This voting exhibition gives our artists well-deserved bragging rights and all of the highlighted works will be on display for the duration of the exhibition,” added Greenhalgh.

    AAN is also hosting an Online exhibition of the same name, which may be found on our website here under “Buy Art” beginning on Friday, October 2 and running through October 23.

    The People’s Choice Exhibition will be on display from September 25 – October 10 at the Cecelia Joyce & Seward Johnson Gallery, 19 Washington Street - in the heart of Nantucket’s Cultural District. The gallery is open, Tuesday–Saturday 10 A.M.–5 P.M., closed 2 – 2:30.
