Artists Association of Nantucket


The Artist Association of Nantucket celebrated it 70th anniversary in 2015! This milestone also marks the beginning of a new era for the AAN. We have recently expanded and can now offer an Artist In Residence Program. The mission of AAN is to foster the visual arts on Nantucket. We do this by promoting, supporting and encouraging the work of Nantucket artists, providing educational programs in the arts, and preserving the legacy of Nantucket artists. The Artist in Residence opportunity is one more way we are fulfilling our mission.

Residencies are awarded annually between November – June. Fees depend on the dates chosen. As part of the residency program, you will have the opportunity to work with AAN members and the Nantucket community.

As part of your time with us, we ask that you consider sharing your experience in the form of an exhibition in our VAC gallery, an artist talk, open to the public or a teaching workshop. Some options may reduce your residency fee.


Nantucket, Massachusetts: United States

The VAC is located in the Center of Nantucket Island, convenient to all services. Bike paths are everywhere, however in the late fall and winter a car may be necessary, as the public shuttle buses do not run after Columbus Day.
