Jack and I are former art gallery owners on Nantucket. Our South Wharf Gallery enjoyed 35 years of of promoting and supporting Nantucket artists. Since semi retiring in 2011 we have traveled widely and discovered Airbnb as an interesting way to avoid large impersonal hotels and save money at the same time. Now that we've started hosting we've have had the pleasure of welcoming some wonderful people to our home. We look forward to seeing you here soon.
