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

Lester Stevens, Emile Gruppé, Harry A. Vincent, Marguerite S. Pearson, Antonio Cirino, Paul Strisik and Emma Fordyce MacRae. The Auction also includes a wide array of other prominent American artists of the past, from Cape Ann and throughout the country. The Auction, now in its 31st year, began with a bequest by founding member Antonio Cirino (1889-1983). Cirino left his artwork to the Rockport Art Association & Museum (RAA&M) 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.
