Celebrating The Collection

The Nahant Historical Society’s Collections are rich and diverse. In the inaugural exhibition for our new gallery we have focused on paintings. Our newly refurbished gallery space gives us the opportunity to showcase our collections in fulfillment of our mission, “for the enjoyment, education, and enrichment of the public”.

The exhibition has been curated by Rick Arzillo and Chris Mathias with the assistance of Julie Tarmy, Suzanne Hamill, Calantha Sears and the Board of Directors.

The exhibit runs through October 5th. Viewing hours are: Wednesdays, Thursdays, Sundays 1:00pm - 4:00pm, Saturdays 10:00am-4:00pm. Free and open to the public. 41 Valley Rd, Nahant.
