Each year the Workhouse celebrates the work of the Workhouse Artists through the Collectors Showcase exhibition in the McGuireWoods Gallery.

 
Each artist who works on campus or is part of the Workhouse Associate Artists is offered the opportunity to display a piece of art representative of their body of work.
 
An independent juror reviews the entire show and selects “Best in Show” and several “runners-up.”
The winner of “Best in Show” is afforded a solo show in the McGuireWoods Gallery later in the year.
 
At the conclusion of the exhibit the Workhouse Arts Center hosts a special reception and fundraiser. Each patron who purchases a ticket for the art lottery is entered into a drawing, and in order of their lottery number the patrons select one of the pieces of art for their personal art collection.
 
There are four levels of tickets:
Premier Package ($500 for a couple / $450 for a single person) – guarantees one of the first ten spots in the lottery.
Premium Package ($350 for a couple / $300 for a single person) – guarantees slots 11 through 30 in the lottery.
Regular Package ($200 for a couple / $150 for a single person) – guarantees ticket purchaser will leave with an original piece of art
