The 21st annual History Meets the Arts (HMTA) show & sale will be held at Gettysburg College, June 8-10 2018 in historic Gettysburg, PA. Produced by Lord Nelson's Gallery, you'll meet 30 artists in person during this three day event.

The artists represent a wide variety of genres including 18th & 19th century periods, Native American, wildlife, landscape, nautical, 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.
