12 x 12 Art Show and Auction at PAAM

12 X 12 Show

The Provincetown Art Association and Museum is open again! With the onslaught of COVID-19, the museum was closed in PAAM in the spring. It has been sorely missed. But now the museum staff is elated to open to the public again and there are four shows currently on display, the member’s open 12 X 12 Show, The member’s open “Freedom” Show, Director’s Choice: In Memorium: Napi Van Dereck and Harbor to Bay from the Permanent Collection.

The Member’s 12 X 12 Exhibition and Auction is one of our favorite events. It pulls an amazing variety of pieces in with a wide range of styles and subject matter. We have two pieces on show ourselves.

Here are a few photos from the show that we took this past week.


Here are a few short videos from the current exhibitions. 12 X 12 Video

Members Show: Freedom

Here is the announcement from the museum:

Every summer PAAM members sell their artwork and raise funds for PAAM in the 12×12 silent auction. With 300+ submissions, the 12×12 exhibition is a significant fundraiser for PAAM and one of the best ways for artist members to get their work noticed.

All pieces have a starting bid of $125, and climb by demand until the final minutes of the exhibition. Artist-members sell their work at 50% commission, winning bidders get wonderful artworks, and PAAM gets 50% commission, or 100% if the artists donate to PAAM. It’s a win-win-win!

The Members’ 12×12 Exhibition and Silent Auction is PAAM’s largest annual membership drive. Memberships valid through at least March, 2020 are being honored for this exhibition, but we would be so grateful if you renewed early (we’ll be sure to extend your existing membership). Memberships that expired in February, 2020 or earlier must be renewed prior to submitting. Visit the Members section on our website to learn more about memberships or to join or renew.
