106 W Chestnut St


curio. features a carefully curated selection of drawing and writing supplies, books, open stock art papers for drawing, printmaking and painting as well as a wall of greeting cards. Rotating exhibitions within the gallery focus on local and regional artists, all of whom have a story to share through the work they create. 

Owned by Nicole Duquette and Matt Allyn Chapman, their vision with curio. is to encourage creativity, build community and have meaningful conversations through art. 

Quality product, unique items, a passion for creativity and support for artists make curio. a destination in downtown Lancaster, Pennsylvania.


curio. is thrilled to be a partner of “Creativity is….A Community Art Exhibition” with PCA&D – Pennsylvania College of Art & Design Exhibitions Department and PCA&D – Center for Creative Exploration! Along with support from the City of Lancaster Office of Public Art, they are hosting an opportunity for the Lancaster community to showcase their visual response to the prompt, “Creativity is…” in an exhibition that will be installed at the Lancaster Amtrak station in two of the public art cases from August 9 – November 14, 2024.
With this special exhibition in mind, we are hosting a free creating event on Sunday, May 5th, during ArtWalk! The 6”x6” panels + materials to make with are supplied; however, registration for a time slot is required to ensure we have enough space to create comfortably. Choose from 12:30-1:30 pm or 2:30-3:30 pm for panel-making fun. Registration is easy- online or in the store.
