Rittenhouse Square Fine Arts Association

Philadelphia, PA

The Rittenhouse Square Fine Art Show is held on the sidewalk which surrounds the beautiful and historic Rittenhouse Square in the very art-smart city of Philadelphia. Exhibiting only original art work in this affluent area of Philadelphia, artists have found success in both shows and consistently rate them as two of the top shows in the entire country.

The Rittenhouse Square Fine Art Shows are planned, organized and operated by the Rittenhouse Square Fine Arts Association, a non-profit organization with a Board of Directors comprised of exhibiting professional artists.


This is an originals only fine art show. Only non-functional original work created by the artist may be shown and all work must be for sale. No reproductions may be shown or promoted. All work displayed must be of the same or better quality than the work submitted to the jury process.

The following is a list and explanation of those categories accepted for jury.

Any two-dimensional works created in either oils or acrylics.

Any two-dimensional works created in watercolors, gouache or tempera paint.

Any printed works for which the artist has manipulated the plates, stones, or screens. These works must also be printed by the artist and not an associate or helper. In addition, printmakers are required to disclose their creative process and printing technique. All prints must be signed and numbered as a limited edition.

Any two dimensional works created using a dry medium, including pencil, graphite, charcoal, wax crayons or pastels.

Nonfunctional three-dimensional work created in any media.

Mixed Media
Two- or three-dimensional is work that incorporates more than one type of material or medium in the production.


Each exhibiting artist must complete an online application with only one artist per entry, unless you are entering as collaborating artists. Applying in different mediums requires it a separate application. Each submitted application must include an application fee and its own set of images.

The Jury Process
This competitive show is limited to 143 exhibitors chosen by a jury of highly qualified 2D and 3D fine artists. All participants in the show will be chosen by this jury. Decisions of the jury are based on the quality, uniqueness, consistency and professionalism of the artwork.

Digital Images
Five (5) images are to be submitted for each individual medium category entered by the artists: four (4) images must be of individual pieces of artwork and the fifth (5th) must be a booth image showing the overall continuity and professional presentation of the artist’s current body of work. The jury needs to see both the booth display and work similar to the work which the artist plans to bring to the show. [Note: The booth image is mandatory.]

Collaborating Artists
“Collaborating artists” is defined as two (2) artists that work together on any one piece of art. If two artists collaborate, it is regarded as one joint entry. If accepted, all work exhibited must be collaborative.


Application Fee is $35.00
