2018 Patrons’ Show Updates

The first batch of artwork has been uploaded to Flickr.

With just a few weeks until our 50th Anniversary Patrons’ Show Fundraiser, we’re thrilled to see the event taking shape — even before the artwork is hung on the walls!

(New to Patrons’ Show? It’s turning 50 this year, but we’re proud to host an event that brings in fresh faces every time. If you’re a newbie, or thinking about attending, learn all about how it works in this blog post.)

Here are all the latest updates:


Tickets are on sale now, and there are about 100 left as of this blog post. Couple’s Tickets are currently sold out, but there are plenty of single tickets ready to be claimed. Get all your tickets on Eventbrite and let us know if you run into any trouble!

If you already have a ticket and want to buy extras (a “no seat needed” ticket), get in contact with our gallery and they can help you out.

Can’t attend? Want an extra chance to take home your favorite piece? The First Choice Raffle returns this year, and you’ll be able to buy raffle tickets online. Stay tuned for details!

Viewing the artwork

Donated artwork is being photographed and uploaded to Flickr right now! View all the artwork in this Flickr album.

If you’re using the Art Thief app and don’t see artwork yet, go to the Update Art tab at the bottom of the app. Learn more about how to use Art Thief in this tutorial video.

Of course, you’ll want to view the artwork in person, too. We’ll start hanging artwork in our gallery as soon as the current show closes February 4, and expect to have the gallery open to the public within a few days afterward.

Artist donations

Artists, there’s still time to donate and be a part of this 50th anniversary event! This is a great way to get your artwork in front of thousands of viewers and your chance to take home some of our $21,000 in prizes. Get all the details on how and why to donate here.

To be eligible for all of the judged prizes, be sure to donate by February 5!

And of course, a huge thank-you to all of our artist donors and the award sponsors.
