PAAM’s annual Consignment Auction is a spectacular live event that features the work of late regional artists. Held annually in September, PAAM’s Consignment Auction features artwork by deceased artists who lived, studied, or worked on Cape Cod. Auctioneer and Provincetown art expert James R. Bakker (MA Lic.#154) officiates these events. In the weeks prior to the Auction, all lots are displayed for public viewing at the Museum in the Auction Preview exhibition.

CLICK HERE FOR AN ABSENTEE BIDDER REGISTRATION FORM
We accept written/sealed bids, and phone bidding. Bidders submitting written/sealed bids must indicate their maximum bid, and whether or not they would like to bid “plus one”. “Plus one” gives us permission to increase their bid one bidding increment beyond their maximum bid in case of a tie between them and another bidder. When completing an absentee bidder registration, please indicate if you are submitting a phone bidding registration or absentee. Phone bidders need not fill out the bottom half of the left side of the registration sheet, as they will essentially be participating as though they were present at the auction. It is the responsibility of the phone bidder to ensure they are somewhere with strong cell service, where they will be able to clearly communicate their bids to the PAAM staff person who will call them at the time their lot is presented. If you wish to register for absentee bidding, please review and return a completed registration form to PAAM Registrar Seth Abrahamson, either via fax to 508-487-4372 or email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
