Here Comes the Sun

To herald the return of spring, the Artists Association of Nantucket (AAN) is pleased to announce the Here Comes the Sun exhibition, which will open with a reception on Friday, April 12, 5–7 p.m. in the Joyce & Seward Johnson Gallery, 19 Washington Street. This exhibition runs concurrently with Junior Artists I, featuring work by students from the Nantucket Elementary School, Nantucket New School, and Nantucket Lighthouse School. Both exhibitions will be open to the public April 12–22.

The opening reception for Junior Artists I is Thursday, April 11, 3–5:30 p.m.

“After the wintery weather, it’s exciting to have the gallery open for another season” said AAN gallery sales manager Peter J. Greenhalgh. “This first opening will showcase many new works completed by our artists during the off season.”

AAN includes over two hundred artist members, who showcase their work in changing exhibitions throughout the season. “This is an exciting time of year for our artists—seeing old friends and clients, while celebrating the return of spring on Nantucket,” added Greenhalgh.

Here Comes the Sun will be on display through April 22; the Joyce & Seward Johnson Gallery, 19 Washington St. will reopen on April 11, and remain open Monday – Saturday, 11 a.m.–5 p.m.

Nantucket Island Resorts has provided generous sponsorship support for the Here Comes the Sun exhibition.

ReMain Nantucket is sponsoring the student show.
