I will be present at the Rittenhouse Square Fine Art Show again this year. This will be the 77th year for the outdoor exhibition, and the 5th for me. It is the oldest outdoor fine art show in the country. My booth number will be 60. I have met many friends there in the past. I will have my block prints available for your viewing pleasure.
The show is located in Philadelphia, at Rittenhouse Square, running from Friday, June 6th through Sunday, June 8th. Sunday the show goes to 5pm.
