Artists Association of Nantucket (AAN) is thrilled to announce that it is, once again, hosting its annual Art Auction and Gala at the Great Harbor Yacht Club this Saturday, July 17. The evening event will be in-person again after the pandemic pushed the 2020 Gala to an online-only format.
“We are especially delighted to be hosting the annual Art Auction and Gala, in person, back at the Great Harbor Yacht Club this year,” said AAN Executive Director Courtney Bridges. “It is a joy to welcome back our loyal patrons and artist members to the tradition of AAN’s most festive evening of the year, and at the same time honor longtime and beloved artist member, generous supporter and past board president Lynn Nicholas as this year’s honorary artist.”
The July 17 event will feature a silent auction that anyone, even those not attending the live event, will be able to participate in. Bidding will be held via the online link at www.32auctions.com/GalaSilent2021.
Bobby Frazier, AAN Artistic Director, says, “To offer this online opportunity to our patrons near and far is a great benefit and something that we learned during the pandemic. It opens up the event to so many more of our devoted art enthusiasts.”
The Gala event will also be filmed by NCTV18 and can be viewed live on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H98eKPizNEc
