Each year, this prestigious fundraising event attracts serious collectors throughout the country, as well as those just starting a collection.

Now in its 33rd year, the Auction 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. More Info on our website or call 978.546.6604.
