Artist Shareen Davis 

Sponsor Nickerson Art Gallery 

Photographer and former fisherman turned gallery owner, Shareen Davis is most likely the only shark artist in the Park to have actually touched a great white in the wild!

In 2006, she was one of a group of elite local weir fisherman, marine biologists (including the renown Greg Skomal) and large marine mammal scientists to rescue and release the great white shark known as Gretel who was stuck in the Nashon Inlet lagoon near Falmouth, Massachusetts.

You can visit her at Nickerson Art Gallery 618 Main Street to see her work and to hear the rest of the story.

Nickerson Art Gallery, situated in a stand-alone building in historic downtown Chatham

Gallery owners pastel painter, Ginny Nickerson and photographer, Shareen Davis’ partnership was born from a collaboration of artists who had an opportunity to get together for a summer season to open an art gallery in the Nickerson family-owned building that was built by Ginny’s Grandfather in the 1930′s. After a successful summer, Ginny and Shareen decided to continue on as partners. Nickerson Art Gallery represents nationally recognized local artists and artisans, many of whom, including the owners, are directly descended from William Nickerson, the founder of Chatham.The Gallery is both traditional and contemporary in nature and brings an eclectic sense of Cape Cod.
