Selected artists work in a variety of different media – including painting, drawing, printmaking, sculpture, photography, and fiber art. Each artist will present their work as a 10 x 10-inch or a 24 x 24-inch panel piece, keeping with the tradition of previous Benefits. Panels will be available for $500 for a 10 x 10-inch panel and $1,000 for a 24 x 24-inch panel, and a portion of proceeds from the exhibition will go directly to and the Dina Wind Art Foundation. The Benefit Exhibition provides a rare opportunity for collectors to purchase work by their favorite artist at a fixed price, discover and collect new artists, and give back to the community through our nonprofit partners.

This year, the Gallery is also thrilled to welcome Dr. Brittany Webb, the Evelyn and Will Kaplan Curator of Twentieth Century Art and the John Rhoden Collection at Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, as our esteemed juror. Dr. Webb will award five prizes to participating artists, including a Vault project exhibition at Bridgette Mayer Gallery as the first prize.
