The Art League’s Patrons’ Show

Patrons’ Show, the Art League’s biggest fundraiser, is back on Sunday, February 19, from 6–9 pm. Ticket holders may choose to attend the event in person at the Torpedo Factory or from the comfort of home via the streaming platform Vimeo. This much-anticipated event, now in its 55th year, allows ticket holders to acquire high-quality, original fine art—valued from $235 to upwards of thousands of dollars—while supporting a great non-profit organization and community of artists.

The Patrons’ Show Exhibit features over 600 original fine artworks donated by Art League and Torpedo Factory artists. It opens for viewing in The Art League Gallery and online Friday, February 3, two weeks before the drawing. Ticket holders fill the Gallery during these two weeks studying the artwork and noting their favorite pieces, so they’ll be prepared to select from the available artwork when their turn arrives.

At the Patrons’ Show event, the emcee announces the name of every ticket holder in a random drawing. Each person called chooses their favorite work of art from the Show to take home! In addition to the artwork, ticket holders may win other valuable prizes donated by local businesses.

Tickets for the Patrons’ Show fundraiser are $235 and can be purchased here.

Anyone can see the bevy of paintings, sculptures, ceramics, photographs, printworks, and more on the League’s Patrons’ Show 2023 album on Flickr; and download the handy Art Thief app to pick and organize their favorites on an iPhone, iPad, or iTouch (but grab a ticket if you want to claim artwork!).
