The Cape Cod Museum of Art would like to invite you to participate in our Annual Auction Fundraiser. This is the Cape Cod Museum of Art’s 40th Anniversary, and we are looking forward to a celebratory and successful event!
Based on the overwhelming support we received during last year’s online annual auction, we have decided to use a similar format this year. The Museum will showcase your artwork in its galleries beginning on August 7th at an in-person auction preview cocktail party, with steel drum music, hors d'oeuvres and themed drinks. Besides being an excellent time to see and leave bids on beautiful artworks, this party will also be a time to celebrate the 40 years we have traveled as an institution, with the theme of “Voyage”.
Artists that donate 100% of their sale price to the Museum may attend the cocktail party free of charge and will be acknowledged in our catalog for their 100% contribution. For a 75% contribution you may receive half-priced admission to the cocktail party. As this is a fundraiser, we will not be providing discounted admission for a 50% donation, however, all artists participating will receive a complimentary one year membership to the Museum, or an extension of their current membership.
During the party and leading up to the Live Online Auction, our patrons will be able to bid on your artwork. The Live Online Auction finale will be held exactly one week later, on August 14th at 7:00 pm. This Live Online Auction will use the international INVALUABLE auction platform. A platform that reaches 8.1 million people every month. Glen Krawczyk from Eldred’s Auction House will be our auctioneer.
Please fill out the “Level of Participation” form right away so that we will know if we can count on you this year. When you are ready, but before July 15, please submit your images using the Artwork submission form.
Alternatively, instead of having to take images yourself and submitting them through our “Artwork Submission” form, you may bring your artwork directly to the Museum any time during open hours, but before July 15. We will then take the necessary images for you, to be included in our Live Online Auction.
I thank you in advance for your contribution. This Museum was founded by artists and seeks to promote, research, and celebrate artists with a Cape Cod connection. Your participation in our largest annual fundraiser is what keeps us strong, allowing us to better serve you and our community. I hope we can continue on this Voyage together.
With gratitude and admiration,
Benton Jones, Director of Art
