First Look Party, Thursday, September 6
Sale of Artwork, Sunday, September 16
One of Philadelphia’s most exciting and beloved art events, Dear Fleisher, is a biennial invitational exhibition and sale of original works of art in postcard size. More than 300 artists donate 650+ pieces, all of which are displayed anonymously until sold.
In the spirit of Fleisher’s mission to make art accessible, all work is priced at $50 each and sold on a first-come, first-served basis. The sale provides many community members with their first opportunity to own an original work of art, and all proceeds benefit Fleisher’s award-winning arts education programs.
Dear Fleisher, weekend begins with a special First Look Party on September 6, the first chance to scope out all of the artwork and purchase a curated selection by our Artist Committee before the sale opens to the public. Ticket details coming soon.
On Sunday September 16, an enthusiastic crowd, many of whom line up hours before the doors open, vie for the chance to buy work from premier artists, while enjoying the ambiance and camaraderie of this special event.
