Held in the Hibbard Gallery of the Rockport Art Association & Museum (RAA&M), the auction features works by masters of the Cape Ann School including Aldro T. Hibbard, Anthony Thieme, Emile Gruppé, Harry A. Vincent, W. Lester Stevens, Max Kuehne, Marguerite S. Pearson, Antonio Cirino and Paul Strisik and numerous other renowned Cape Ann artists of the past such as Emma Fordyce MacRae, Jane Peterson, Harrison Cady, Al Czerepak, Bernard Corey and many more.
The auction, now in its 32nd year, 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.
