Patrons' Show Info for Artists


← back to the main Patrons’ Show page

Dear Artists,

Each year, the Patrons’ Show Fundraiser helps The Art League meet its mission: by supporting the artist, we enrich the community. We are dependent on the generosity of our artist community to make this event — our largest fundraiser — a success this year!

For each piece of art donated (valued at $225 or more), we sell one $225 ticket to the Patrons’ Show. Donations are now being accepted!

Why donate?

Thousands of dollars in prizes is available to artists!

Awarded by judge:

  • $5,000 — Clemente Best in Show for Contemporary Realism*
  • $2,500 — Clemente Faculty Award* (Art League faculty are eligible)
  • $500 — TFAA Artist Award* (TFAA members are eligible)
  • $400 — Van Landingham Award*

Chosen by ticket-holders:

  • $1,000 — Clemente Collector Award (First Choice Award)
  • $250 — Geri Gordon Award (determined by popular vote)

*To be eligible for these four awards, artwork must be donated by February 1, 2017. If you will be donating unframed work as well as framed pieces, make sure they are donated well ahead of time so they can be framed!

We will gratefully accept all donations through February 17. All artwork is eligible for the Clemente Collector Award and the Geri Gordon Award. (These go to the first artwork selected in the drawing and the winner of the popular vote, respectively.)

This year's judge:
Jack Rasmussen, Director and Curator of the American University Museum at the Katzen Arts Center

All artists receive a statement following the event with our thanks and the contact information for the patron who selected their work.
Thousands of people will view this year's artwork online and through the Art Thief app.

How to donate


Simply bring your framed, ready-to-hang artwork to The Art League Gallery during our regular hours:

  • Monday–Saturday, 10:00 am–6:00 pm
  • Thursdays until 9:00 pm
  • Sunday, 12:00 noon–6:00 pm

Artists who contribute two or more framed works may also donate unframed works. We also need donations of frames and glass that are 16" x 20" or larger.

If you would like to donate any work you currently have in the gallery, just call us (703-683-1780) or send us an e-mail (gallery@theartleague.org) and we will take care of it! 

Any questions? Please call us at 703-683-1780 or email gallery@theartleague.org.

Thank you for your support!
