Nickerson Art Gallery- Chatham’s premier local art gallery.
Gallery owners pastel painter , Ginny Nickerson and photographer, Shareen Davis’ partnership was born from a collaboration of artists who had an opportunity to get together for a summer season to open an art gallery in the Nickerson family-owned building that was built by Ginny’s Grandfather in the 1930′s. After a successful summer, Ginny and Shareen decided to continue on as partners. Nickerson Art Gallery represents nationally recognized local artists and artisans, many of whom, including the owners, are directly descended from William Nickerson, the founder of Chatham.
Nickerson Art Gallery, situated in a stand-alone building in historic downtown Chatham, is within walking distance to the Nantucket Sound, the Atlantic Ocean and wonderful retail shops and restaurants.
The Gallery is both traditional and contemporary in nature and brings an eclectic sense of Cape Cod.
The Gallery Owners/ Directors
Ginny and Shareen’s native knowledge of Chatham and Cape Cod creates a special experience for visitors to Nickerson Art Gallery. They give a unique perspective on local art, culture and history as well as to Shareen can tell you what fish is being landed at the docks in Stage Harbor and Aunt Lydia’s Cove.
Yes, here we are bay scalloping off Chatham culling our catch on board the fishing vessel the Morgan E. The Morgan E is owned by Shareen and her husband Ernie. It is a trap boat used in their weir fishing business and was converted to a scalloper for the season. Come visit our gallery, we are as local as they get.
