The Artists Association of Nantucket (AAN) is pleased to announce the opening of The Big &
Little Show, on Friday, April 5, 5:30-6:30 p.m. at the Visual Arts Center at 24 Amelia Drive. The
show will celebrate AAN artist members’ whose work is on a larger scale, or conversely, a much
smaller scale than standard works of art.
“This exhibition is a great opportunity for our artist members in all media, who work with less
typical dimensions, to show their art. It will celebrate artwork that may not get as much wall
space in our regularly scheduled downtown gallery shows,” said Robert Frazier, AAN’s Artistic
Director. “Not only will the exhibition showcase art that might not normally see the light of day,
but it will allow many artists to try their hand at something new,” he continued.
"The aim of this exhibition is to bring many more artists’ work to our gallery walls for the
Nantucket community to view. We are thrilled to host this show that broadens the scope of the
artists’ ability to display their work,” adds Courtney Bridges, AAN’s Executive Director.
The exhibition will run through mid-May 2019 at the VAC Gallery, 24 Amelia Drive. Hours are
Monday-Friday, 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.
