About the Exhibition

In anticipation of the annual Consignment Auction, a spectacular live event that features the work of late regional artists, PAAM presents a preview of all lots for public display. Held this year on Saturday, September 23 at 7pm, the 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. Concurrent to the opening of this exhibition, all auction lots will be displayed online.

PAAM Executive Director Chris McCarthy says, “the quality of the art has reached a national level both for collectors and consignors. We are thrilled to not only exhibit this art, but help others build their collections of such an important period in American art history.”

This year’s auction features over 100 paintings, prints, sculptures, and works on paper. Those unable to be at PAAM the night of the auction may participate through live phone bidding or by leaving an absentee bid (registration is free for all bidders).
