WSA Fundraiser with Artist Nancy Nicol - The Art of Oysters
Wellfleet Artist Nancy Nicol has generously offered to donate half of the proceeds of her paintings to the Wellfleet Shellfishermen's Association. Purchases can be made online with shipping and pickup options arranged directly with Nancy or at the Shellfish Market.
Local Wellfleet artist Nancy Nicol prefers to paint shells of wild oysters harvested on the Wellfleet flats. Their curvy, exotic shapes and luminescent linings each seem to tell a story, occasionally producing pearls. Their placement on the canvas is intentional, as though they are in deep conversation or close relationship.
Nancy Nicol's artwork is found in collections nation-wide, and includes water-and-landscapes, ponds, the harbor and historic shacks including Cap't Higgins Shellfish Shack, which housed the notorious Spit and Chatter Club. She estimates hundreds of her oyster paintings are displayed in homes and businesses nationwide and she still finds them fascinating to paint. nancynicolart.com
