Patrons’ Show 2021
The Art League’s Patrons’ Show Fundraiser (February 20, 2021) is an experience that’s part fundraiser, part block party, and totally fun. For 2021, we’ll be taking the event online. 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 $225 to upwards of thousands of dollars.

How Does it Work?
This annual event features 600+ works of original fine art donated by Art League and Torpedo Factory artists, and the number of tickets sold matches the number of works donated. The show may be viewed online beginning January 1, 2021 and in-person The Art League Gallery three weeks prior to the drawing. Ticket-holders will have longer than in previous years to see the work online and in-person before the virtual event, for a safe, socially-distanced opportunity to study the artwork and note their favorite pieces, in preparation to have their list of favorites ready for when their names are drawn during the event.
On the day of the Patrons’ Show Fundraiser drawing (Saturday, February 20, 2021), 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 artwork, ticket holders may win other valuable prizes donated by local businesses.
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 entertaining event.
If you are a League member, TFAA artist, or Art League Faculty member, and would like to donate artwork, here’s the lowdown: for each piece of art you donate (valued at $225 or more), we sell one $225 ticket to the Patrons’ Show to help support our operations. It’s our biggest fundraiser of the year—and the reason our doors stay open! This year, more than ever, we need your artwork donations. Ready to hang artworks can be dropped off in the gallery during our open hours, which are currently Wednesday-Saturday from 11:00 AM-5:00 PM and Sunday from Noon-5:00PM. Those who donate two or more framed pieces can also donate unframed works to the show. We also need donations of frames and glass that are 16″ x 20″ or larger. Please call or e-mail The Art League Gallery (703-683-1780 | firstname.lastname@example.org) to coordinate or find out more!
