For more than a century, the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts’ Annual Student Exhibition (ASE) has been the capstone academic achievement for our students. The ASE Preview Party, hosted by the Women's Committee of PAFA, kicks off the tradition this year on Thursday, May 9, 2024. Sponsorships and tickets are available now!

Proceeds from the ASE Preview Party support student scholarships and event guests enjoy first access to the sale of our rising artists’ work, along with a host of other benefits. Not only is the Preview Party an opportunity to support rising artists on the cusp of their professional careers, it is also a chance to connect with fellow art lovers and become the first collectors of tomorrow’s art stars. 

The Annual Student Exhibition has been a launching stage for the careers of some of PAFA's acclaimed alumni, from living artists such as Bo Bartlett, Njideka Akunyili Crosby, and Elizabeth Osborne, to titans of the PAFA legacy, including Edna Andrade, Daniel Garber, Barkley L. Hendricks, and Laura Wheeler Waring. Join us this year to celebrate our students' part in this rich creative legacy.
