Patrons Show

Sunday, February 21, 2022
2:00 pm

Tickets on Sale:

Saturday, November 20
10:00 am

The Art League’s Patrons’ Show Fundraiser is an experience that’s part fundraiser, part block party, and totally fun. It’s The Art League’s biggest fundraising event of the year, providing seasoned art collectors and newcomers alike with the excellent 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, ticketholders go home with a work of art valued anywhere from $225 to upwards of thousands of dollars.

In light of continuing restrictions surrounding COVID, we’re keeping a VIRTUAL format so nobody misses out on this perennial favorite!

Something else to feel good about: all proceeds go to benefit The Art League’s educational programs, exhibits, and community outreach programs.
