Our Through the Artist’s Eyes 2020 online for sale exhibit will continue to highlight the beauty and vitality of Bucks County, casting a light on a region that has been so famously painted and photographed over the centuries, and continues to inspire today. During this time of isolation and physical distancing, we are steadfast in our belief of the importance of community, and the need to deepen our sense of belonging and link all to the collective process of giving to those who are in the greatest need.
The online exhibit, featuring more than 100 pieces of artwork, from 25+ local artists, will share what they love about Bucks County.

About Art of Preservation
Founded in 2011, we are environmentally conscious and quality-of-life local community members, who value the natural beauty and artistic history unique to the Upper Bucks County region. Our mission is to support local non-profit organizations, and community programs and projects that promote the preservation of our vibrant landscapes, historical sites, and the local arts and culture that thrive in Upper Bucks County, and the Lehigh Valley.
Over the past eight years, we have raised $130, 000, donating these funds to Heritage Conservancy (2011 to 2014, 2017), The Gallows Run Watershed Association, The Cooks Creek Watershed Association and the new Artists Among Us Residency series at the ArtsQuest Center at Steel Stacks (since 2015), and to Heritage Conservancy’s Fuller/Pursell Nature Fund in Springfield Township (since 2019). We have also generated more than $65,000 in the sale of art, providing local artists important visibility through our annual events, website, and social media sources.
