The 2021 Cahoon Museum Art Auction – Brush Off kicks off online at 9 a.m. on Saturday, June 26, and runs through July 10. The auction is open to the public and includes artworks at all price points. The event features over 125 pieces by more than 70 local and regional artists.
Featured artists this year include Jackie deRuyter, Alfred Glover, Duncan Johnson, Kathryn Kleekamp, Michael MacMahon, Sarah Peters, Christy Peterson, Ethan Murrow, Kate Nelson, and Scott Prior.
As part of the two-week celebration, many of the region’s most talented plein air artists will be setting up their easels in the community to capture the scenic seaside landscape. This is a unique opportunity to watch the painters and experience the creative process. The paintings produced by the plein air artists will also be available in the online auction.
The Art Auction is the Museum’s most important fundraiser. To preview a selection of the available artworks, the public is invited to two free-admission Open Houses at the Museum on Sunday, June 27 and Saturday, July 10. Information about the available artworks and bidding can be found at cahoonmuseum.org/brush-off.
The auction is sponsored by William H. and Mary H. Woods Fund for the Arts and Literacy, The Horton Family, and Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Robert Paul Properties.
