About

The exhibition of charcoal drawings by Emily Nelligan and etchings by her late husband Marvin Bileck celebrated the natural beauty of Great Cranberry Island, where the couple summered for more than 50 years. Art critic Hilton Kramer praised Nelligan’s drawings for their “apparitional character” and found Bileck’s prints “worthy of comparison with the finest tradition of Northern Europe graphic art.”
