Art Auction 2016


Sunday, April 24, 2016


Jason Tako’s “Sarah Patterson Farm” inspired the highest winning bid at the 2015 event: $2,000. Thanks to everyone who attended the auction and placed a bid for land preservation in Adams County.

We invite you to participate in our 19th annual Art Auction at the Blue Parrot Bistro on April 24!

Over the years, our Art Auction has become one of the area’s most popular community events—and one of our most significant fundraisers. Auction proceeds help underwrite expenses incurred in working with landowners to create conservation easements, our fundamental tool in accomplishing our mission of preserving the rural lands and heritage of Adams County.

Want to take a peek at the art set for auction this year? Please plan to attend our First Friday Artists’ Reception at the Blue Parrot from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Friday, April 1. Come enjoy free refreshments while you browse the art slated for auction and meet many of the artists who donated work!

Want to donate art to the 2016 Art Auction? Just print out our Art Auction Contributor Form and bring it with your donation to the Land Conservancy office located within the Penn State offices, upper level of the Adams County Agricultural and Natural Resources Center, 670 Old Harrisburg Road, Gettysburg. Make sure to give us a good description of your donation and, if applicable, the address of your website so that we can help promote your donation prior to the auction.

So that we have sufficient time to prepare our auction catalog, please note that our deadline for accepting donations is March 16. So hurry in! We can’t wait to see your work!

And remember, we are also gratefully accepting specimens of high-quality collectible Americana, such as fraktur, stoneware, redware, ironware, baskets, quilts, weathervanes, carved decoys, antique games and toys, and the like.
