The story behind Nantucket Carving & Folk Art goes back nearly half a century. When woodcarver Paul McCarthy began carving wood as a teenager, he might not have realized that his work would cover an entire island. McCarthy and his business partner, folk artist Jean Petty, create masterpieces in their studio workshop. From quarter-boards proudly naming summer homes, to the magnificent carvings.
Nantucket Carving & Folk Art’s gallery contains works of art for sale on display for anyone passing through. Carved birds, whale carvings, impressive golden eagles, and Jean’s amazing paintings and vintage signs adorn their shop, all waiting for you to take a piece of Nantucket heritage home.
