Annual Student Exhibition Preview Party

May 12, 2022

For more than a century, the Annual Student Exhibition (ASE) at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts has been the capstone academic achievement for our students. On Thursday, May 12, 2022, the tradition will continue, kicked off by the Annual Student Exhibition Preview Party, hosted by the Women's Committee of PAFA. 

ASE helps students launch their professional careers. PAFA’s MFA and BFA students have the chance to exhibit their artwork in a world-class museum, where it will be seen by hundreds of art collectors and art lovers. Becoming a sponsor of the Annual Student Exhibition Preview is not only an opportunity to support rising artists on the cusp of their professional careers, it is a chance to connect with fellow collectors and art lovers, and to purchase work by the art stars of tomorrow before the exhibition opens to the public. 

The generosity of sponsors and ticket buyers along with those who purchase the amazing array of works created by PAFA's talented graduates provides valuable scholarship support to current students. Net proceeds from ticket sales and sponsorships for the ASE Preview, as well as a portion of the proceeds from each student artwork sold, directly support PAFA scholarship funds for current and future students. These funds play a vital role in ensuring that PAFA can continue to recruit, educate, and support the very best and brightest up-and-coming artists.

Tickets to the Preview Party offer an exclusive opportunity to explore and purchase new works by student-artists before the exhibition opens to the public. Tickets for the Preview Party are sold at multiple tiers, allowing guests different benefits and entry times contingent upon their ticket level.
