Lord Nelson's Gallery in Gettysburg, PA began the History Meets the Arts show in 1998 and hosted roughly a dozen artists at the gallery in  its first year. Over the years, Lord Nelson’s Gallery grew to hosting over 40 artists in an off site venue in Gettysburg to better accommodate the art, artists and patrons. It’s an impressive show. Painters, sculptors, authors, period artisans such as colonial potters, knife makers, gun makers, powder horn makers, textiles, oil floor cloths, silversmiths, etc. There has been a tremendous amount of talent and beautiful, diverse artwork represented over those 21 years. What began strictly as an historical art show, expanded to offer genres including wildlife, landscape, aviation, fantasy, sporting art and more.

Upon the conclusion of this year’s show, the decision has been made to bring the show back to its roots -  strictly historical art by our core artists and be held at Lord Nelson's Gallery.  It will provide for a more intimate, specialized show, exactly what it was set out to do. The dates have not yet been determined but they will be posted on this site (and the Lord Nelson's Gallery site) when available. Thank you.
