Don't Miss the "Most Fun Art Fundraiser" in DC!

Don't miss out on the best art fundraiser in DC! The Patrons’ Show 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, and it provides seasoned art collectors and newcomers alike with the great opportunity to acquire quality works of fine art at a bargain price while supporting a non-profit organization and community of artists. For each ticket drawn, ticket-holders go home with a work of art valued anywhere from $175 to upwards of thousands of dollars. Tickets, $175 each, will go on sale Saturday, January 15, 2011 at 10:00 am in The Art League Gallery, 105 North Union Street, Alexandria, VA.

This annual event features between 500-600 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 in The Art League Gallery and online two weeks prior to 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 names are drawn.

On the evening of the Patrons’ Show drawing, 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.

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) or click here for more information about this exciting event.
