The Malvern Retreat House Annual Art Show features some of the region’s finest artists, who display works ranging from paintings and glass art to jewelry. The show attracts hundreds of guests and generally brings in about $100,000 in gross revenues from the approximately 600 art pieces sold during the show. A portion of the proceeds benefits Malvern Retreat House.

2017 highlights include:

-Works from About 100 Juried Artists

-A Featured Exhibit of Figurative Art

-Representation from a wider geographic area than the past – We have a number of artists from downtown Philadelphia, rural Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware, in addition to the best artists from suburban Philadelphia.
