FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Ogunquit Museum to Hold Annual ABC Sale

OGUNQUIT, MAINE, March 1, 2016 – The Ogunquit Museum of American Art (OMAA) will hold its annual ABC Sale from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, April 16. ‘ABC’ refers to art, books, and collectibles from the OMAA, the Shop at OMAA, and from donated items.

“We know our neighbors look forward to this sale every year and so do we. It means our season is just a few short weeks away, it lets us (and our neighbors) clean house a bit, and the funds we raise help us fulfill the museum’s mission and present an exciting season of programs,” said Ron Crusan, Executive Director, Ogunquit Museum of American Art.

The OMAA currently seeks quality donations of items for the sale. Please call to arrange a drop-off time at the museum, 543 Shore Road, Ogunquit. Then join us on April 16 to find some new treasure!

The Ogunquit Museum of American Art (OMAA) was founded by Lost Generation artist Henry Strater and opened in 1953. Closely connected to two of America’s earliest art colonies that directly contributed to the roots of American modernism, OMAA today houses a permanent collection of important paintings, sculpture, drawings, prints and photographs from the late 1800s to the present and is the only museum in Maine devoted exclusively to the exhibition, preservation, and interpretation of American art. A short walk from Perkins Cove, the museum and its three acres of sculpture gardens overlook Narrow Cove and the Atlantic Ocean.
