2019 RAA&M Auction INformation
RAA&M annual ART auction
Saturday, May 4, 2019 | 2:00 PM (EST)
Each year, this prestigious fundraising event attracts serious collectors from across the country, as well as those just starting an art collection. Held in the Hibbard Gallery of the Rockport Art Association & Museum (RAA&M), the auction features works by master Cape Ann artists of the past such as: Aldro T. Hibbard, Anthony Thieme, Emile Gruppé, Harry A. Vincent, W. Lester Stevens, Max Kuehne, Marguerite Pearson, Antonio Cirino, Carl Peters, Frederick Mulhaupt, Jane Peterson, Emma Fordyce MacRae and many more. Our 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 34th year, began with a bequest by founding member, Antonio Cirino (1888-1983). Cirino left his artwork to the 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.
