Welcome to Outer Cape Auctions and Galleries. We have been representing sellers and buyers of Provincetown and Cape Cod art since 1999. We do not list with any auction listing services*. We do however record auction results of our auctions in the Artist's Records section (click button above).
Check out the 3 galleries of art available for purchase NOW!
FRESH to MARKET: 2 Simie Maryles, 3 Harvey Dodd, Hilda Neily, Sheila Benzer, Cynthia Packard, R.C. Gorman, Len Paoletti, Mary Springer and more available now. I have been consigned 17 works of art for private sale from the estate of Allan Johnson, former owner of Swann Realty and the Mews Restaurant. He lived in Provincetown and Truro for most of the 1980's and 1990's. He moved to Florida. Please click on the above button that says A.Johnson Art, or click here:
Hi Friends and Art Collectors:
I have decided to hold off on any additional art auctions until after September, 2013. There are several reasons for my decision but ultimately it comes down to the economy. The news talks about this recession and Wall Street and Main Street but never seem to mention the 'side streets' which aptly describes my sellers and buyers. Until the economy and the financial position of all of us 'side streeters' improves, it makes no sense for me to continue to organize these auctions as the final net income to OCA Auctions after an auction does not equate to the cost of organizing them.
I will however focus more on private sales of art. Since 1999, I have amassed a great list of serious collectors of certain artists (ex: Anne Packard, Robert Cardinal, Henry Hensche, Ross Moffett, Karl Knaths and so on) so I invite all sellers of art of Provincetown artists to please consider using OCA Auctions as a possible path to sell important works. The advantage to private sales is a higher selling price, higher net to sellers and most importantly, a quicker pay out to the sellers. If you feel you have a piece of art that falls in the category of 'fine art' and would like to explore the possibility of using OCA Auctions, then please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and include full details and any images that would be useful for me to evaluate the feasibility of OCA Auctions representing you on the sale of that work.
I will keep you all updated on the future auction dates here and through emails.
Important note: Due to a technical issue with Microsoft Frontpage 2003, the software I used to create this massive website, it has in effect, locked me out of my website www.outercapeartauctions.net, the location of all the artist's records and biographies. I have not been able to update any pages in that site. Once I find the solution to my glitch, I will update and correct all items that need updating.
Find out what so many people already know....Outer Cape Auctions will make you
on your quality early and contemporary
New England artists.
Every auction we set a new world
record for at least one artist!
