History Meets the Arts

Gettysburg, PA is the place to be later this week if you love great art, great food, history and lots of fun. The 16th Annual History Meets the Arts begins this Thursday and runs through Saturday at Lord Nelson's Gallery right off Rte 30 in downtown Gettysburg.

Beginning Thursday at 5pm there is the Edible Art Tour. Visit half a dozen art galleries and numerous artists (including yours truly) throughout the town and sample the great food by local top tier chefs. This is a ticketed event, see website for details. History Meets the Arts is in conjunction with the Gettysburg Festival, so there will be more than enough fun to be had. Not only will there be paintings, but also 18th century replicas like black powder guns, tomahawks, rocking chairs and more!

I will be exhibiting some exciting new paintings in Lord Nelson's Gallery! Beautiful spring apple orchards of Adams County, majestic autumn landscapes, and intimate Battlefield scenes that reflect the now peacefulness of a once war-torn land. Below is a sample of what I will be exhibiting at History Meets the Arts.

I hope to see you there. Don't miss the 16th Annual History Meets the Arts!
