Online Consignment Auction of Early Provincetown Art

September 17 @ 7:00 pm

Held annually in September, The Annual Consignment Auction of early Provincetown art is one of PAAM’s most significant fundraisers, supporting our year-round educational offerings, exhibitions, and other cultural programming.

The Auction is conducted online at LiveAuctioneers.com, and is previewed in an exhibition at PAAM from September 2-17, 2022. Purchasing a piece of artwork from this auction makes an extraordinary difference in PAAM’s ability to maintain its operations. 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.

Bidding is open for two weeks during which you can leave single bids on any given lot, or use the auto bidding feature to set your maximum price for a lot, and the site will automatically bid in the given increments for you up to your max. Lots will begin closing in numeric order at 7PM on Saturday, September 17. You can continue to submit bids while the lots are closing. Submitting bids will reset the timer of that lot closing. Once no further bids are submitted on a lot, it will sell to the highest bidder. This will happen quickly, so be ready!
