All art up for bid will be on view at the Adams County Arts Council, 125 S. Washington St., Gettysburg, from Sept. 4-23. The Arts Council is open Monday-Friday, 9 a.m.-5 p.m., so stop by to take a peek at the artwork generously donated by local and regional artists and art collectors—then pull out your smartphone and start bidding! (Of course, you can place bids on your desktop, laptop, or tablet computer too!)

Bidding closes at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 23. Visit our website for more information!
