The Dear Fleisher, First Look Party, one of Fleisher’s most beloved events, is back Friday, November 18! The evening is your only chance to scope out the more than 700 works of art contributed by 300 Dear Fleisher artists before the sale opens to the public on Sunday, November 20 at 1:00p.m. This year, you’ll have the chance to meet the artists as they join in for cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, and conversation to kick off Dear Fleisher weekend.

While no work will be available for purchase at the First Look Party, you will have access to a raffle of specially contributed works by premier artists, including Jonathan Adler, Henry Bermudez, Billy Dufala, and Colette Fu, and a silent auction featuring items from renowned Philadelphia restaurants, shops, and institutions. Sponsorships begin at $500 and include a special preview hour beginning at 5:00 p.m. featuring a champagne toast, as well as raffle tickets and limited edition Dear Fleisher, 2016 calendars. Be sure to catch InLiquid member Rachel Citrino’s works!

Please help organizers raise $50,000 in support of Fleisher’s mission to make art accessible to everyone, regardless of economic means, background, or artistic experience. Fleisher is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization and your donation is tax deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law.
