About Wet Paint:Fresh Works Auctions, Nantucket...During the Artists Association of Nantucket’s annual Wet Paint—Fresh Works Auctions weekend, visitors can chat with member painters working en plein air across the island on Saturday, October 7. The works the artists produce will be auctioned in a live auction held at 5 p.m. at the Nantucket Yacht Club, hence the event’s name, “Wet Paint—Fresh Works.” On Sunday, a silent auction will be held featuring artwork of various media by island artists. Proceeds from the festivities, which include a VIP dinner Sunday evening, help fund the association. “It’s always a fun and happy weekend,” says Peter Greenhalgh, association gallery manager. The event is free and open to the public, though tickets must be purchased in advance for the dinner.
