Welcome to the 19th annual History Meets the Arts (HMTA) show which will be held in the Gettysburg College Ballroom, June 10-12 in historic Gettysburg, PA. Produced by Lord Nelson's Gallery, you'll meet with 35 artists in person during this three day event. Artists include painters, sculptors and traditional 18th century period accoutrement makers, in addition to accomplished historical book authors. The artists represent a wide variety of genres including 18th & 19th century periods, Native American, wildlife, landscape, nostalgic, and more.
This will be your opportunity to see and purchase the latest original paintings and speak to the artists in person. You can discover more in depth information about one of the attending author's books, or learn how a sculpture is created from the original clay to the completed bronze. Then explore contemporary 18th century period accoutrements made by some of the country’s finest artisans. Discover the art in powder horns, porcupine quillwork, hand forged knives, tomahawks, flintlock longrifles, colonial era pottery, canvas floor-cloths and more.
We invite you to browse throughout the site for more details on this annual show and sale. Enjoy!
