2019 marks the 10th Annual Christmas Stroll Art Show benefiting Palliative & Supportive Care of Nantucket (PASCON) and the Marla Ceely Lamb Fund. It’s at Quidley & Co. on Main Street.

Over 175 artists have participated since its inception. We welcome new and returning artists.

To indicate interest, email cmriden@pascon.org If you do not email to indicate interest and/or if you miss the drop-off deadline, we cannot guarantee including your work in this year’s show.

We are looking for original, quality works. There are no subject or medium restrictions.

Patrons are generally looking for great deals. This event began as a “mystery auction” where patrons paid $100 and were able to choose any piece in the show on a first come, first served basis. It was definitely seen as a competition to get the best deal.

  • For donated works, PASCON and the Marla Lamb Fund retain 100% of the proceeds.
  • 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.
