show information for professional artists
We are proud that in addition to our ranking of
#1 show in the country by Sunshine Artist Magazine, our June and September shows were also ranked #1 and #4 respectively in Art Fair SourceBook's Top 100 Fine Art Shows
These rankings, based on sales, are compiled each year from the feedback cards sent in by show artists. We'd like to thank all of the excellent professional and student artists who make our shows some of the best in the country.

Sept 2021 Set Up Procedure for Professional Artists
Set Up Procedure: Set up and teardown procedures will be different for this show. Several restaurants around the Square have structures in the street to accommodate outdoor dining. This has reduced the lanes of traffic on 18th Street to one lane, as well as affected traffic flow around the park. You should have received an email on September 1, with a chart and a map showing set up times and the location where and when you are required to park to unload your vehicle.
Artists in spaces on 18th Street and across from the Rittenhouse Hotel on West Rittenhouse:
Park in your assigned location. These will be color coded unloading zones and will be clearly marked (see map).
You will have one hour and 45 minutes to unload and dolly your display and work to your space.
You will be required to move your vehicle before the next group of artists arrives.
Important: Artists assigned to these spaces must set up on Thursday. You will not be permitted to unload and set up on Friday morning.
All other artists must arrive at their designated set up time, or wait to begin set up at 6:30 pm Thursday, or Friday morning.
You will be required to move your vehicle before the next group of artists arrive. NO EXCEPTIONS.
Members of our Board of Directors and Staff will be on site to help coordinate our efforts. In addition, we will have our security team, a uniformed police officer, and a team of volunteers in place. Patience and cooperation will be key to a smooth set up.
If you have any questions about this email or anything else, feel free to contact us at Info@rittenhousesquareart.com.
