You don't have to drive into the city to see fine art.

Located in our 26,000-square-foot Fine Arts Center in Blue Bell, our bright, airy gallery exhibits unique local collections and the work of area artists in a variety of media. Exhibits change throughout the year. Be sure to check our schedule for details on our latest shows.

Past exhibits have included prints, drawings, paintings, photographs, ceramics or sculptures or a combination of these.

The surrounding grounds showcase the experimental metal sculptures of Philadelphia artist Leon Sitarchuk. Donated to the College in 2005 by his wife, Peggy, Sitarchuk’s works explore space and perspective.
