Purchase Tickets

The Women’s Board of the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts cordially invites you to attend the Preview Party in celebration of the 117th Annual Student Exhibition. The gala evening is the major annual fundraiser of the Women's Board

The Preview Party kicks off the historic Annual Student Exhibition and offers guests the first chance to view and purchase nearly 1,000 paintings, sculptures, works on paper, and installations created by PAFA’s BFA students, third-and fourth-year Certificate program students, and MFA candidates, all on the verge of their professional careers. The student artists will be present to discuss their work with guests. Students retain the majority of the purchase price of works sold, and all proceeds from the Preview Party support PAFA student scholarships.

If you are unable to attend the Preview Party, but wish to support student scholarships, make a gift online.

Tickets for the Preview Party are sold at multiple tiers, allowing guests different benefits and entry times contingent upon their ticket level.
