Virtual Opening: Saturday, February 20 from 2pm to 8pm
The show must go on! This year The Art league presents Patron’s Show 2021: Virtual Edition!, an online version of the perennial favorite that art lovers from near and far can safely attend via Zoom on Saturday, February 20, from 2:00 to 8:00 p.m.
The Patrons’ Show is the League’s biggest fundraising event of the year and offers seasoned and new art collectors an opportunity to select from over 600 works of original fine art donated by Art League and Torpedo Factory artists. For each ticket drawn, ticket holders acquire artwork valued anywhere from $225 to thousands of dollars.
Art lovers can also view the Patrons’ Show virtually on Flickr, and check back periodically to see what is added as we get closer to the show. Art Thief, the exclusive mobile app of the Patron’s Show, is available to download free on iOS devices. It lets you see all of the artworks and list and rank your favorites.
This year ticket holders make and submit a list of 75 or more of their top picks into an artwork list portal that the Patrons’ Show algorithm will pull and match with a ticket holder’s choice when their name is called on February 20. Selections can be edited and resubmitted up until the event begins.
The 2021 Patrons’ Show will broadcast live from The Art League Gallery. Don’t miss your chance to gain fine art while supporting a great non-profit organization and community of artists! Tickets are on sale until they sell out.
The Patrons’ Show is now open for viewing during regular Gallery hours:
- Wednesday through Saturday, 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.,
- Sunday noon to 5:00 p.m.
They anticipate that the first two weekends of February will be their busiest, so during this period there will be scheduled and timed viewing slots to ensure a safer environment.
The Art League Gallery in Studio 21 is located at 105 North Union Street, Alexandria, VA. (Located in the Torpedo Factory Art Center)
