Patron of the Arts

Did you know that you can be a Patron of the Arts?  A patron is someone who supports the Sanford Brush & Palette Club’s Annual Art Show by: 

  • Attending the Annual Art Show!  Take in a visual experience and get to know the artists through their work and their stories behind the art.   
  • Inviting a friend who may be interested in original artwork to come to the show.  There’s nothing like being with people who love art.    
  • Spreading the word about the SBPC and the show to your circle of friends.  Your support goes a long way in encouraging local artists and bringing new visitors in to experience the show.
  • Supporting us through social media.  Like us on Facebook and, if you see a post you enjoy, be sure to share it with your friends.
  • Making a purchase.  Next time you need a gift or something new for your home or office, consider buying an original art piece, a print or note cards at the show.  Your purchase supports our artists as well as the SBPC and its programs.
  • Making a donation.  We welcome donations of any amount.  Our “Art Angels for Budding Artists” program is a favorite among our patrons.  

The support of our Patrons is an important part of the success of our Annual Art Show.  Our Patrons receive recognition in the “Our Patrons” section of our Art Show program booklet and our artists will receive a special Patrons Award ribbon for any art pieces purchased.  As a Patron of the Arts, you and your guests are:

  • Invited to a special preview of the show.  This is a private event for Patrons and invited guests only. 
  • Able to purchase artwork before the show opens to the public. 

How the program works:  To join the group of prospective patrons, complete and submit the Patron of the Arts Form below.  Each year (usually in late August), prospective patrons are invited by letter invitation to participate in our Patron of the Arts program for the current year’s Art Show. Those who desire to participate return the RSVP card accepting the invitation.

  • If you are able to attend our Patrons Day event, you and your guests can walk through the gallery, enjoy a light brunch or visit with the artists or other patrons.  Members will be on hand to answer questions and assist you with purchases. 
  • If you are not able to attend our Patrons Day event, we hope you’ll be able to come another day and view the show.
  • If you are not able to attend the show, please consider giving your support to the SBPC by making a tax deductible donation. The SBPC is a 501(3)(c) nonprofit organization and gratefully accepts and appreciates donations in any amount.
