This weekend marks the Sixth Art for Land’s Sake, a biannual art show and sale held to benefit the Valley’s Planning Council, a 50 year old preservation organization. More than 300 works of art will be for sale during the two-day event.
Art for Land’s Sake is held at different venues every other year and this year’s show and sale is at the Party Barn at Caves Farm, a 600-acre equestrian farm which has been preserved with the help of the Valleys Planning Council.
This year’s Art for Land’s Sake is featuring Art for the New Collector. These selected pieces come with a lower price point so cost is not a barrier to acquisition. Many of the artists will be at the show throughout the weekend and are happy to answer questions about their subjects and techniques.
Also new this year is a selection of art from Maryland Artists of the Past who painted early last century and whose works still remain relevant and important. This is an excellent opportunity to acquire works by artists who helped make Maryland such a significant part of the art world.
If you are not able to attend the Preview Party or the Art Show & Sale, artwork from the show will continue to be on sale after October 2nd. Please call the VPC office or click here to check availability and to purchase.
Tickets to the Show and Sale are $5.00 per person and are available at the gate. Plenty of free parking is available, as well. Please click here for directions to the Park Heights Avenue entrance.
