34th Annual Consignment Auction of Early Provincetown Art

September 25, 2021 @ 7:00 pm

PAAM’s 34th Annual Consignment Auction closes virtually at 7 PM on September 25, 2021 at PAAM.LiveAuctioneers.com (click here).

Held annually in September, The Annual Consignment Auction of early Provincetown art is one of PAAM’s most significant yearly fundraisers, supporting our year-round educational offerings, exhibitions, and other cultural programming. Purchasing a piece of artwork from this auction will make an extraordinary difference in PAAM’s ability to maintain its operations. See all lots on Live Auctioneers or in person in the Preview Exhibition at the Museum (all bids taken online), open Wednesday-Monday, 11am-5pm.

Consignors to the auction receive 80% of the “hammer price” for lots sold, and PAAM receives 20% or a minimum of $50. It is in the best interest of PAAM and the consignor to sell high, so every effort is made to ensure the best possible price at auction for every consignment. The auction is advertised digitally and in print through major antique and fine arts publications both locally and nationally, and all lots will be on view at the museum from September 3 through September 25. The auction is officiated by Auctioneer and Provincetown art expert James R. Bakker (MA Lic. #154).
