 Are you a full-time ART student currently enrolled at the college level in Pennsylvania, or surrounding states? If so, you are eligible to apply for our June or September shows.


As we strive to provide art students with an exciting and valuable experience, we recruit jurors from top galleries in Philadelphia. Evan Slepian, owner/director of Works on Paper Gallery, and Morgan Hobbs, assistant director of Gross McCleaf Gallery, selected the September show winners from our talented pool of student artists. They sought artists whose work demonstrated a unique voice, professionalism, and cohesive style.


This September, the Rittenhouse Square Fine Art Show proudly welcomed Pennsylvania's First Lady,

Frances Donnelly Wolf to present our

student artist awards.


“Rittenhouse has been creating spaces for young artists for nearly 100 years, and their work has been powerful for the art community and the community at large.”  — Frances Donnelly Wolf
