Nantucket Historical Association to Present Loan Exhibition of Winter Show in NYC

NANTUCKET – Tickets are now available for the Loan Exhibition at the Winter Show in New York City this year.

The Nantucket Historical Association (NHA) is offering exclusive tickets to the closing day of events on Sunday, January 27 at the Park Avenue Armory in New York City.

The ticket includes admission to The Winter Show, a brunch at the Board of Officers room at the Park Avenue Armory, and a lecture with Nathaniel Philbrick.

The NHA sent individual artifacts to the special exhibition, called Collecting Nantucket, Connecting the World.

On view of the Winter Show will be a needlework picture stitched by a young Susan Colesworthy (1752–1811) in 1765. This needlework picture is part of a group of similarly designed pastoral embroideries called “The Fishing Lady Pictures.”

Pastoral canvaswork pictures were fashionable in England throughout the first quarter of the 1700s, becoming part of the curriculum at Boston boarding schools during the mid-eighteenth century.

For more Information about The Winter Show or tickets, concact Rebecca Miller at the NHA by calling 508-228-1894, ext. 122.
