The Blue Parrot Bistro in Gettysburg will once again host our annual Art Auction, which features a wide variety of original artwork by local and regional artists—everything from painting and drawing to ceramics and other three-dimensional work.

Read an auction preview here. Watch the video here.

Included in the auction for the first time this year are specimens of high-quality collectible Americana, such as stoneware, quilts, carved decoys, antique toys, and more.

Over the years our Art Auction has become one of the area’s most popular community events—and one of our most significant fundraisers, raising more than a quarter million dollars since its first edition in 1998. Auction proceeds help underwrite the expenses incurred in working with local landowners to create conservation easements, our fundamental tool in accomplishing our mission of preserving the rural lands and heritage of Adams County.

The Blue Parrot Bistro, located at 35 Chambersburg Street, Gettysburg, has long hosted our auction event, providing a unique and engaging venue for the display and sale of donated artworks. Randy Hilker will return as auctioneer extraordinaire.

Doors open at noon, with bidding beginning at 1 p.m. Admission is $15, with all proceeds benefitting the Land Conservancy. There will also be door prizes, raffles, and more. You’re welcome to preview the works included in the auction by visiting the Blue Parrot throughout the month of April, or by browsing a selection of auction items here.

In addition to raising funds for the Land Conservancy, we hope our auction serves to help promote the work of our donor-artists. We are excited to list those who have donated to the 2015 auction.  Be sure to click on the highlighted names to access the artists’ websites.
