The 17th Annual Art Auction to benefit the Land Conservancy of Adams County will be held on Sunday, April 27, 2014. Thanks to donations from local artists and art collectors, the auction has become our most successful fundraising project, generating more than $250,000 since our first auction in 1998.
Once again, our auction will be hosted by the Blue Parrot Bistro, which provides a unique venue for the display and sale of the donated artworks, and Randy Hilker will return as auctioneer extraordinaire. The “Auction Show” will be on display at the Blue Parrot for three weeks leading up to the auction, and every effort is made to provide maximum exposure to the artists and the donated works. A wine and cheese reception will be held from 4:00 to 6:00 PM on Friday, April 4, to open the show and celebrate the artists. The reception will coincide with Gettysburg’s First Friday events.
We are seeking original works of art, with two-dimensional pieces framed and ready to hang. Contributions and accompanying information should be delivered to the Land Conservancy office at 670 Old Harrisburg Road in Gettysburg no later than Wednesday, March 26. When you drop off your donation, you may pick up postcards announcing the auction to send to your patrons. If necessary, we can arrange for someone to pick up your donation.
