ROCkport art association & Musuem annual auction
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 including, but not limited to: Aldro T. Hibbard, Anthony Thieme, Emile Gruppé, Charles Paul Gruppé, W. Lester Stevens, Antonio Cirino, Paul Strisik, Emma Fordyce MacRae, Jane Peterson, Max Kuehne, Al Czerepak, Bernard Corey, Don Stone and many more.
The auction, now in its 35th 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.
