Become an AAN Member

The Artists Association of Nantucket fosters and sustains the visual arts on Nantucket. Established in 1945, AAN continues to build on the success of its gallery, arts program, and Permanent Collection of Nantucket art, ensuring its essential place in the Nantucket community now and in the future.

AAN membership is central to the success of the organization and provides support for educational programming for children and adults at our workshop, a full calendar of exhibitions and events at the Cecelia Joyce & Seward Johnson Gallery, and preservation and maintenance of the AAN Permanent Collection. Please join as an artist, individual, or business member. We welcome your participation.

Join now.


Artist Membership

AAN has over two hundred Artist Members, who participate throughout the year in changing exhibitions at the Cecelia Joyce & Seward Johnson Gallery. We are proud of our members and grateful that they have made the AAN Gallery the most comprehensive venue on Nantucket for local art. You can download an application here.

Individual Membership

Individual Members are art buyers, students, friends and loyal supporters of Nantucket art. Become an AAN Member and receive discounts on classes and purchases in the gallery. In addition, all members will also receive an AAN member discount card that entitles them to various discounts at participating AAN Nantucket Network businesses.  Members are also the first to receive invitations to special events, including the annual Art Auction & Gala, Croquet Tournament, and Wet Paint Weekend. AAN Circle Members enjoy additional benefits, such as invitations to members-only social networking events, receptions and lectures and are eligible to receive an invitation to join the Friends of the Artists Association of Nantucket, a group whose mission is to support the AAN Permanent Collection, and may participate in AAN-sponsored trips. 

Business Membership

Nantucket business members support AAN special events and gallery openings. In exchange for recognition in our e-newsletter, printed materials, website, and advertising, island businesses sign on as exhibition sponsors, supporters of the Sidewalk Art Shows, and underwriters of special events.
