VICTORIA, Texas – The Victoria Art League held its second Mardi Draw fundraiser Saturday evening.

Funds raised will go toward a new technology, media and arts department at the art league located on South Bridge Street in downtown Victoria. The event raised about $4,000, according to organizers.

Attendees took part in a gumbo competition as well live and silent auctions of art made by members of the league.

The Victoria Art League was founded in 1966 as the Metropolitan Art League of Victoria and changed its name in 1984 and again in 1997. The facility functions as an art gallery as well as an art education classroom and an event venue available to rent for special occasions.
