'Artists wait for this'

NAA's annual auction features works to suit all tastes

(Continued)

Oregano has a long-standing relationship with the NAA, acting as a rotating exhibition space for members’ art. While the artists gain exposure and an opportunity to reach potential clients, Oregano and several other businesses get constantly changing, professional decor.

“Believe it or not,” Elias said, “I’ve been told by almost every artist we exhibited that they sold one or two pieces directly from displaying at Oregano.”

Bachrach points to that communal appreciation as part of the reason that Newburyport’s artists have been so successful: a high quality of life and abundance of scenic views, combined with a generous community of patrons who appreciate the value of original art.
