The IMAGES Patron’s Program is a fantastic way to support the arts and Festival presenter, Atlantic Center for the Arts (ACA). The VIP Patron festivities are held at the stunning Brannon Civic Center with panoramic views of the Intracoastal Waterway in the heart of the Festival–convenient and comfortable!

Patrons pledge a minimum of $500, with $200 being returned to you in “Doris Dollars” that you spend at the Festival on artwork, jewelry, and other fine art items of your choice presented by IMAGES artists; $300 of your pledge is tax-deductible. In addition, Patrons receive the following benefits:

  • Exclusive cocktail party with heavy hors d’oeuvres Friday night, January 27, 2023
  • Food, beverages, and cocktails in the Patron’s Lounge on Saturday and Sunday
  • Preferred parking pass [first come, first served]
  • Comfortable venue for relaxing and socializing when you need a break from shopping
  • Private restrooms
  • Patron’s tote with award ribbons to be given to artists when you purchase an item from them using your “Doris Dollars” Patron’s money
  • Professional advice from the staff of ACA for art selection

We invite you to join us at a Patrons Kick-Off Party at Arts on Douglas on Thursday, November 17 from 5:30-7:30 PM to hear exciting Festival updates, meet the featured poster artist, and reconnect with your friends! Each Patron commitment received by November 17th will receive a signed poster at the Festival!

You can champion the 2023 IMAGES artists by pledging to underwrite one of the awards selected by the Judges. Support an award as an individual, a couple, a business, or with friends. Underwriters for this program will be recognized in all the event support materials and will receive an exclusive invitation to attend the Artist Dinner on Saturday evening—a special time to share in the joy as the winners are announced! This program highlights our community’s commitment to celebrating the arts and the incredible IMAGES artists!
