Held annually in September, The Consignment Auction of Early Provincetown Art is one of PAAM’s most significant annual fundraisers, supporting our year-round educational offerings, exhibitions, and cultural programming. Purchasing a piece of artwork from this year’s auction will make an extraordinary difference in PAAM’s ability to maintain its operations.

The PAAM 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 and online.

Now until September 25th at 7PM, pre-bidding, or “absentee” bidding, for all lots is open! Lots will open to live bidding at 7PM on the 25th, and go in numeric order from lot 1 to lot 86. For more information about bidding, please check the Live Auctioneers bidding FAQ at: https://help.liveauctioneers.com/category/12-bidding-ins-outs-in-betweens

Winning bidders will receive an invoice from Live Auctioneers with instructions for providing payment information to PAAM. Winning bidders may pick up their lots Saturday the 26th through Monday the 27th between 9AM and 11AM.

If you have any questions, please email PAAM Registrar, Seth Abrahamson, at seth@paam.org.

Hammer price is split 80% to consignor, 20% to PAAM, with a minimum of $50 to PAAM. Buyer pays PAAM an additional fee of 25% of the hammer price.
