Thank You for A Hugely Successful Patrons’ Show!

Patrons' Show Fundraiser

Patrons' Show Fundraiser

Excitement was in the air last night, along with cheers, groans, and occasional boos: all signs for anyone in the vicinity of Old Town that it was Patrons’ Show Fundraiser night.

And thanks once again to our amazingly generous artist donors, a huge team of dedicated volunteers, and the support of all of our patrons and sponsors, this year’s fundraiser was another hit! The money raised from this year’s fundraiser supports The Art League’s mission of supporting the artist and enriching the community through outreach programs like IMPART, SOHO, and the Geri Gordon Scholarship Fund.

Reflections in Silence: After the Storm by Nancy Pane Fortwengler won the Geri Gordon First Choice Raffle Award.
