What is a Patron?

The Patron’s Choice Awards, totaling $200,000 in 2017, demonstrates community support for the Festival, thereby enhancing its reputation and increasing its prestige. Patron’s Choice Awards are given by individuals or businesses who commit to spending a minimum of $200 on artwork at the Festival and who make a $200 tax-deductible donation; this commitment demonstrates community support for the artists and the Festival. The Patrons select work for purchase, then give the artist(s) a prestigious “Patron’s Choice Award” ribbon to be placed in his/her booth.

To become an IMAGES Patron, phone the IMAGES office at 386-423-4733 or click here to join online

In addition, Patrons receive the following:

  • An invitation for two to the exclusive Patron’s cocktail party with the Festival judges at the  beautiful new Brannon Civic Center, Downtown New Smyrna Beach.
  • Have fun in the Patron’s lounge Saturday and Sunday. Meet with your friends as you determine your strategy for touring the festival, enjoy a glass of wine and light fare.
  • A parking pass, providing parking closer to the Festival
  • Guidance in selecting a piece (or a professional can select for you if you cannot attend the Festival)
  • Gift certificates are available as client or thank you gifts, as birthday gifts.

Thank you to our 2017 Patrons!
