Nick Nickerson, Reluctant Artist

Jul 12, 2013

Nick Nickerson of Chatham was a commercial fisherman for more than fifty years. Now he’s semi-retired and he makes seashell decorations to pass the time.  Some people are calling these decorations art, and even though his mirrors fetch a price in the galleries of Cape Cod, Nick is not sure how he feels about the new title. Jackie Mitchell has the story.
