Our 5th Annual Mystery Art Show was Saturday, December 6th at Quidley & Co., and it was a great success!
Thanks to all the artists who donated and to all those who came out despite the weather to purchase original artworks and to support the Marla Ceely Lamb Fund.
An exciting evening in which artists contribute original works in an 8″ x 10″ format.
The artist’s name will be kept secret until the artwork is sold.
We have heard your feedback and made some changes!
1) Now on Saturday rather than Friday.
2) No longer first come, first served. No more waiting out in the cold for 5 hours!
We’ll now have a tiered lottery system. It may be a bit more complicated, but hopefully it’ll also be a bit more exciting and will make a lot more money for the Marla Ceely Lamb Fund.
Here’s how it works:
Lottery numbers will be purchased ahead of time.
The first group of 10 will be sold for $500.
These 10 numbers will be chosen in random order, but they will have the first 10 choices of the evening.
Remember that the first paintings to go are typically ones that sell in galleries for $5,000+, so buyers are still getting a terrific deal!
The second group of 10 will be sold for $250.
These 10 numbers will be chosen in random order, but they will have the 11th-20th choices of the evening.
The rest of the numbers will be sold for $125 as in previous years.
These numbers will also be chosen in random order for the remaining art.
Complimentary refreshments served.
100% of the proceeds go to the Marla Ceely Lamb Fund, not Palliative & Supportive Care of Nantucket Foundation.
Over 100 artists participated in the 2013 show and contributed over 140 original works.
Many individuals and businesses also donated their time and energy and their goods and services to make the event a huge success. Special thanks to Phil Stambaugh and Bill Hourihan of Cape Cod Five, to Chris Quidley, Susan Browne, and Adam Sodofsky of Quidley & Co., and to Wayne Petty and Laura Anderson of Nantucket Frame Center for all their help!
