161st Anniversary Gala

The Philadelphia Sketch Club is hosting its 161st Anniversary Gala on Saturday, October 16, 2021, from 6 PM to 10 PM.  One of the highlights of the event is that we will be honoring three of the nation’s top artists, John Ennis, Jane Golden and James Toogood.  We will be presenting each with the Philadelphia Sketch Club Medal for their significant achievements in the visual arts.  This will be a fun and highly visible event.  It will bring together our members, patrons, supporters, friends, sponsors and neighbors.  It will feature a live art auction, silent auction, deluxe hors d’oeuvres, cocktails and music.  It is critical that this event be a success as it is a significant fundraising vehicle for the Club.

As always, the Sketch Club is concerned for the safety for all visitors to the club. We ask that all gala attendees be vaccinated and adhere to recommended masking.
