Even though the weather was horrible, the Preview Party for Art for Land’s Sake was a smashing success. Hundreds of guests who came to get a first glimpse at the more than 400 artworks on display, visit the vendors and mingle with friends, all agreed that it was worth coming out in the rain to support the Valleys Planning Council.
Inside the huge show barn at Caves Farm, guests were warm and dry and many of the artworks on display drove home the point that the spectacular valleys north of Baltimore are worth preserving. In fact, Caves Farm is permanently preserved.
The shopping at the Show and Sale provided an extra incentive to those who aren’t art-lovers, and there was literally something for everyone, from antiques to handbags and jewelry. The vendors are all local small businesses.
The sponsors, including Brown Advisory, BGE, Barrett Tree Services and WYPR-FM, enjoyed listening to local band, The Lonesome Foxhunters, complete with their foxy backdrop. County Executive, Kevin Kaminitz stopped in on his way to another party.
The Art Show and Sale will be open on Saturday and Sunday from noon until 4:00 p.m. There is plenty of free parking (but wear boots, you’ll be parking in the field), and admission is $5.00 per person.
Thanks to everyone, especially Howie and Megan Wolfe, who made this year’s Art for Land’s Sake possible!
