Dear Fleisher, 4 x 6 Inches of Art

Join us for our biennial fundraising exhibition and sale of artwork, showcasing more than 550 works of art by 300 artists from Philadelphia and beyond. Artists submit original postcard-sized works in a wide range of media and styles, each of which is exhibited anonymously until sold at an affordable price of $50 at a public sale on Sunday, November 16 from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m. All proceeds benefit Fleisher’s mission of providing access to art for all, through classes, exhibits, and community programs.

Preview Party
Friday, November 14, 6:00-8:00 p.m.

There’s just one opportunity to see this amazing show in its entirety - at the Dear Fleisher Preview Party on Friday, November 14. Enjoy cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, and conversation as we kick-off Dear Fleisher weekend. While no work will be available for purchase at the Preview Party, you will have the chance to enter a raffle of separately contributed works of art donated by our honorary committee of artists: Mohamed Bourouissa, Astrid Bowlby, Amze Emmons, and Elizabeth Osborne. Each work is beautifully framed by Ursula Hobson Fine Art Framing.

Sponsorships and tickets for the Preview Party are available online now.
