How do I take one home?

There are two ways to try for these or any other favorite artwork in the Patrons’ Show:

  • Buy a Patrons’ Show ticket ($225): this guarantees you one piece of artwork valued at $225 or more. Your name will be called (in a randomly determined order) at some point during the event on February 18, and you’ll choose from the artwork still available.
  • First Choice Raffle ($15 for one, $25 for two): add your name to the first choice raffle by purchasing one or more tickets online and marking your top choice. If your ticket is the one drawn on February 18, we’ll set aside your choice for you to take home! You do not need to attend the event, and a First Choice Raffle ticket does not guarantee you an artwork.

More awards to come!

Next, it’s the patrons’ turn to play judge. Collectors Awards, worth $3,000 each, will go to the artists of the first three artworks chosen during the drawing on February 18. The Geri Gordon Award, worth $250, will go to the artist whose piece is chosen by the winner of the First Choice Raffle.
