Shannon’s Fine Art Auctioneer’s opened in 1997 as Connecticut’s premier fine art auction house. Founded by partners Gene and Mary Anne Shannon, the firm quickly established a reputation for integrity, knowledge of fine art and personalized service. With over 40 years of experience as a fine art dealer and auctioneer, Gene Shannon provides his clients specialist knowledge of American and European 19th and early 20th century paintings and the fine art market.
Sandra Germain, Gene and Mary Anne’s daughter, joined Shannon’s in 1998 bringing her extensive background in business, marketing and fine art. Since 2014, Sandra has been Co-Principal at the firm. She has organized successful sales of corporate collections and expanded the area of specializations to include Modern and Contemporary Art.
Shannon’s holds two annual Fine Art Auctions at their gallery in Milford, Connecticut and two annual Online Discovery Auctions via invaluable.com and eBay.com. Each sale is composed of paintings, watercolors, drawings, bronzes and fine prints, all authenticated and guaranteed.
The firm is aggressively positioned to compete with New York auction houses in the under $500,000 art market. A bank of 20 phone lines, online bidding, targeted emails and an extensive mailing list attract business from across the United States and internationally.
Shannon’s prides itself on providing each client with personalized service, educating consignors and buyers on fine art, the auction process and market trends. Contact us today with your inquiries about consignments at or by telephone at 203-877-1711.
