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, went on sale Saturday, January 19, 2013 at 10:00 am in the Gallery and online.
Tickets are currently sold out. More tickets will be released as artwork is added to the show — to add your name to the waitlist, click here to visit our online ticket sales page and click the orange "Add to Waitlist" link.

How Does it Work?
Click here to download our Patrons' Show Drawing FAQ.
This annual event features between 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.
On the evening of the Patrons’ Show drawing (Sunday, February 17 at 4:00 pm), the excitement is palpable. Tickets are randomly drawn and when the name of each ticket-holder is announced, they may select a work of art from the show that they wish to add to their collection. In addition to the art work, ticket holders may win other valuable prizes donated by local businesses, including tickets to the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra.
All proceeds go to benefit The Art League’s educational programming, exhibits, and community outreach programs. Please contact The Art League Gallery (703-683-1780) for more information about this exciting event.
