Nantucket Cottage Style

Drawing Inspiration from the Oates-Euler Collection

In the 1960s, Nantucket experienced a seminal influx of artists and artisans that rejuvenated the art colony born on the island fifty years earlier. Collectors Andrew Oates and William Euler were at the heart of this transformative period. Andy and Bill’s vision for a “life well lived”—epitomized by decades of collecting crafts and fine arts—fueled an island lifestyle based on the beauty and simplicity of cottage-style living. A collaboration between the Artists Association of Nantucket and the Nantucket Historical Association.
