2020 Annual Art Auction Participation

The 11th Annual Art Show benefiting Palliative & Supportive Care of Nantucket (PASCON) and the Marla Ceely Lamb Fund will be virtual this year at 32auctions.com. Because we are not hanging works at Quidley & Co. on Main Street, we are opening it up to mediums other than painting and photography.

This auction will still benefit both the artists and the nonprofits!
• Contribute one commission piece – receive 50% of the minimum bid, if sold
• Contribute one or two donated pieces – 100% of sale to charity.

Last year more than 50 artists participated and earned nearly $13,000 while at the same time raising over $40,000 for charity. Now more than ever we need your support to assure that palliative care can be provided to our island’s residents facing life-threatening illness.

• You must email your intent to participate by November 15th if you’d like to be listed on our website and in promotional materials.
•All works will be posted online for auction at www.32Auctions.com/pascon. We will need you to email a high resolution photograph of the works you would like to submit by November 24th along with the title, dimensions, medium, minimum bid, and retail value.
• You may submit one commission piece and up to two donations.
• We cannot accept artworks that exceed 36 inches in any dimension, including frame because of storage and shipping considerations.
• All paintings/photographs must be ready to be hung. Frames are not required. This does not apply for other mediums like sculpture, pottery, etc.
• All works must be on island at the time of the show. *We have very limited capacity for storage and pickup. If you will not be here and able to deliver a piece of art that has sold or have someone deliver for you, we regret that we will not be able to include your work. You are welcome to be in touch with Sharon Hussey to see if we may accommodate you in some way, but we make no guarantees.
• You set the minimum bid. We kindly ask that you set bids as low as possible to help ensure a sale.
• The auction will open on Dec.3rd at 10AM and close on Dec.5th at 5PM. Unlike prior years, bidders will be able to track the progress of the bidding for each piece.
• If your work has sold you will be notified by noon on Dec. 6th and you will need to deliver it to the PASCON program office in the Anderson Building at NCH during one of 3 windows: Sunday, Dec. 6th between 2 and 4 pm; Monday, Dec. 7th between 9 am and 3 pm; Tuesday, Dec. 8th between 9 am and noon. If you are not able to deliver your work(s), you’ll need to find someone to deliver in your stead.
• If your work has not been sold, you will be notified as soon as possible, and need do nothing further.
• For donated works, PASCON and the Marla Lamb Fund retain 100% of the proceeds. You will receive a letter acknowledging your contribution by email no later than December 21st.
• For sold commission pieces, you will receive 50% of the minimum bid. PASCON and the Marla Lamb Fund receive the other 50% of the minimum bid PLUS anything over the minimum. You will receive payment and an email letter acknowledging your contribution no later than December 21st.

Your participation helps countless islanders with life-threatening illness, their families, and those grieving a loss. You can really make a difference!
