About Our Auction
Great cause. Great art. Great value. Tell all your friends and family to check out this important auction showcasing the work of over 40 artists, many among Nantucket's most highly collected.
Palliative and Supportive Care of Nantucket (PASCON), Cape Cod 5, Quidley & Co., and local businesses and artists come together each year for a special art show benefiting 2 vital charities, PASCON and The Marla Ceely Lamb Fund.
Artists set a minimum bid that is typically much lower than a gallery price. If their piece sells, half of that minimum bid goes to the artist. The other half, plus any amount over the minimum bid goes to the charities. In an additional spirit of support from the artist, many forego any commission and donate their work in full. In addition there are five works at the end that are an estate donation.
This show is collaboration and generosity in action. Whether you’re searching for a special gift, a new addition to your collection, or even if you don’t think you have one more square inch to spare, please take a minute to look at these magnificent works. You may find that great piece of art at a great value and support a great cause.
PASCON is devoted to providing a range of services supporting individuals and families grappling with the immense toll of cancer and other terminal illness. The Marla Ceely Lamb Fund is a designated fund aimed specifically at easing the burden of travel costs to and from the island for cancer treatment and care. PASCON started in 1982 and the Marla Ceely Lamb Fund was instituted years later by the family and friends of Marla Ceely Lamb, a native Nantucketer who died of breast cancer in 1992.
