117th Annual Adult Student Exhibition

February 23 to March 20, 2015

For 117 years, the Annual Adult Student Exhibition has celebrated the vibrant artwork created by Fleisher’s students. The exhibition provides students with the opportunity to show their work in a public gallery, a milestone in any artist’s career. In addition, numerous cash prizes are awarded to students in each of many categories of art making including fiber arts, drawing, painting, ceramics, printmaking, sculpture, and photography at the exhibition’s closing reception. The juror for the 117th Annual Student Exhibition was Evan Fugazzi, assistant director at Philadelphia’s Gross McCleaf Gallery.
