Featured as the "Most Fun Art Fundraiser" in Washingtonian Magazine's July 2010 "Best Of" Issue!
Don't miss out on the best art fundraiser in DC! The Art League's Patrons’ Show is an experience that's part fundraiser, part block party, and totally fun. It's The Art League’s biggest fundraising event of the year, and it provides seasoned art collectors and newcomers alike with the great opportunity to acquire high quality, original fine art at a bargain price while supporting a great non-profit organization and community of artists. For each ticket drawn, ticket-holders go home with a work of art valued anywhere from $200 to upwards of thousands of dollars. Tickets, $200 each, go on sale Saturday, January 19, 2013 at 10:00 am in the Gallery and online.
This annual event features 500–600 works of original fine art donated by Art League artists, Art League faculty, and Torpedo Factory artists, and the number of tickets sold matches the number of works donated. The show may be viewed in The Art League Gallery and online from Wednesday, February 6 until the drawing. Ticket-holders fill the gallery during this time, studying the artwork and noting their favorite pieces, so they'll be prepared to select from the available artwork when their names are drawn during the event on Sunday, February 17 at 4:00 pm in the Torpedo Factory Art Center.
