The Philadelphia Sketch Club will be holding its 154th Annual Exhibition of Small Oil Paintings, featuring over 30 artists, including InLiquid artist Fran Gibson. The 154th Annual Exhibition of Small Oil Paintings presented by the Philadelphia Sketch Club represents one of the longest running and most prestigious juried exhibitions in the country. This year’s show runs from April 14 through May 6 with a reception on April 23 from 2 to 4 PM. The exhibition will feature over 150 works by prominent and emerging artists. The exhibition awards are not just certificates and cash, but also the R. Tait McKenzie Small Oils Medal.

Traditionally, the exhibition also features a work by each of the three jurors. This year’s Jurors are Robert Goodman, Aubrey Levinthal and Stefanie Lieberman.
