About the Chadds Ford Annual Art Sale & Show

Betsy Wyeth, wife of the late Andrew Wyeth, started the Chadds Ford Annual Art Sale & Show in 1949

and continued her involvement in the show while her son Jamie Wyeth was a student at Chadds Ford

Elementary. The annual sale continues to serve as the school’s largest fundraiser, providing funding

support for school programs. Chadds Ford Elementary was founded in the early 1900s and received the

National Blue Ribbon in Excellence Award in 2008.
