Show Chair Faad Ghoraishi

“America’s oldest club for artists. Since 1860 the PSC has served as a meeting place, forum for ideas, and a vital bridge between the creators and supporters of art. Past luminaries have included such American masters as Eakins and Anshutz. Present luminaries could include you. We welcome all to the Club, and we urge artists to join in our continuing heritage.” – The Philadelphia Sketch Club
