Nantucket Events

One if by Land, Two if by Sea

The Artists Association of Nantucket (AAN) will open their One if By Land, Two if By Sea exhibition with a festive reception this Friday, June 21, from 6 to 8 pm in the Cecelia Joyce & Seward Johnson Gallery, 19 Washington Street.

“Given the vast history of New England and Nantucket, as the harbor fills with boats and the summer flora and fauna begins, we timed this exhibition to coincide with the arrival of the islands most colorful season. Nantucket lends itself to beautiful vistas, both of land and sea, so our artists were invited to bring in two smallish works or one large piece showcasing landscapes vs. seascapes, for this exhibition,” said AAN artistic director Robert Frazier.

“And as an added plus, on the second floor we will continue to display some of the works completed during our 8th annual Plein Air Nantucket painting festival,” added Frazier.

The Solo Show Spotlight Artist during this exhibition is Courtney Muller, who will also discuss her work during a Spotlight Artist Talk on Saturday, June 22 at 10 am in the gallery, 19 Washington Street.

A stone’s throw from Main Street, the AAN Gallery displays jewelry, oil paintings, acrylics, watercolors, ceramics, sculptures, mixed media, wooden carvings, photographs, and some textiles by its nearly 300 local artist members. All this talent helps make the Cecelia Joyce & Seward Johnson an award-winning gallery and one of the most comprehensive island venues for local art.

One if By Land, Two if By Sea will be on display from June 21 – July 1 at the Cecelia Joyce & Seward Johnson Gallery, 19 Washington Street in the heart of Nantucket’s Cultural District. The gallery is open Monday–Saturday, 10 am to 2 pm and 2:30 pm to 5 pm; Sundays, 11 am to 4 pm.
