Donating Artwork to the 2023 Patrons’ Show Fundraiser

YOU Make The Patrons’ Show Fundraiser Possible!

A sculpture by Chris Malone watches over the other artworks in the 2021 Patrons‘ Show Fundraiser.
The Patrons‘ Show is our largest fundraiser of the year, and each donated work is an essential part of the event. We could not do it without YOU and your generosity!

We are in great need of framed or gallery-ready works. (We will still accept unframed pieces (very gratefully!!) from those who donate two or more framed works.) 

Who can donate artwork?
We will gratefully accept donations from exhibiting artist members, Art League faculty, students, and TFAA members are eligible to donate to the fundraiser. The value of each artwork donation matches or exceeds (!) the cost of a ticket to the fundraiser ($235)

When can artists donate artwork?
We are accepting donations at the gallery during the following hours:
Mon-Sat, 10:00am-5:30pm and Sun, Noon-5:30pm. (Please note, sometimes the Art Center closes at 5:00pm for private events. Check the schedule here.)

Donation deadlines: Wednesday, February 8, 5:30pm, to be eligible for juried awards.
Wednesday, February 15, 5:30pm to be included in the fundraiser.
