CFES Art Show next week

Chadds Ford Elementary School will present its 74th Annual Art Show and Sale on Friday, March 17, from 7-10 p.m., for an adults-only opening night, as well as a family-friendly day on Saturday, March 18, from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. We are excited once again to host the time-honored, volunteer-run event at Chadds Ford Elementary School. There is no admission fee for this event. This year’s Featured Artist is Stephen Brehm, and our Donating Artist is Steven Oliver.

The event will showcase close to 70 local and regional artists’ work in an array of mediums, across palates and price points. We are thrilled to welcome many artists who are new to the show this year, with close to 20% of this year’s artists showing with us for the first time. Patrons may purchase artwork as well as artisans’ jewelry, wooden items, glass designs, and much more. Chadds Ford Art Show and Sale offers the unique opportunity to meet the artists and discuss their work on both days of the show. We will also feature our ever-popular raffle table of items donated by local businesses and families.

The late Betsy Wyeth, the wife of the late Andrew Wyeth, founded the Annual Chadds Ford Art Show and Sale in 1949 and remained involved while their sons Jamie and Nicholas Wyeth were students at Chadds Ford Elementary. The annual event continues to serve as the school’s largest annual fundraiser. Last year’s event was instrumental in helping the school build its new playground, which will be enjoyed by many generations of Chadds Ford students to come.
