Call For Consignments – RAA&M Annual Art Auction – Consignment Deadline: March 9, 2023

The Rockport Art Association & Museum (RAA&M) in Rockport, MA is currently accepting consignment submissions of works by Historic American Artists, Highlighting the Cape Ann School, for its Annual Art Auction. The consignment deadline is Thursday, March 9th and the Auction will be held on Saturday, May 6th, 2023 – Live Online Only. The Auction Preview Exhibition will be on view for two weeks prior to the auction in the Hibbard and Maddocks Galleries of the RAA&M. 

Each year, this prestigious fundraising event attracts serious collectors from across the country, as well as those just starting an art collection. The auction features works by master Cape Ann artists of the past such as: Aldro T. Hibbard, Anthony Thieme, Emile Gruppé, Harry A. Vincent, Antonio Cirino, Frederick Mulhaupt, Jane Peterson, W. Lester Stevens, Marguerite S. Pearson, Charles Vickery, Paul Strisik, Max Kuehne, Mabel May Woodward, Charles Woodbury,Theresa Bernstein, Al Czerepak, Charles Movalli, and many more. The RAA&M auction specializes in Cape Ann art, but is not limited to this region and also includes works by numerous other prominent historic American artists.

The auction, now in its 38th year, began with a bequest by founding member Antonio Cirino (1888-1983). Cirino left his artwork to the Association with the stipulation that the art be auctioned to help support the organization. The auction quickly evolved to include other historic Cape Ann artists, and has been the RAA&M’s major annual fundraising event ever since.
