CONVENTION NOTES

The Annual CPSA Convention in Duluth, GA (near Atlanta) has been a great success. The exhibition continues through August 29th so if you happen to be in the area, be sure to stop by. As usual our corporate members as well as other manufacturers and retail outlets have been very generous in providing product for our convention attendees. Thursday night at our Membership Meeting, attendees were showered with door prizes of both new and familiar products.

The workshops were well attended and some were even filled several weeks before the convention. The Mock Jury, led by Founder Vera Curnow, played to a full room and was a real eye opener to many who had not been exposed to the process of jurying artwork for an exhibition.

The Awards Banquet on Friday evening kept everyone in suspense to learn the best of show winner -- Jeff George, CPSA. If that name is familiar, it’s because he is a consistent award winner and was the top Award Winner of the 16th International last year. Congratulations, Jeff!

You can see all award winners on the CPSA website at: link The entire show will be available on a DVD along with the images from Explore This! 5. Please order (DVD link) as soon as possible so that we will know how many DVDs to have made. The images will also appear in To The Point which will be available in January 2010.

Just wanted to express my appreciation for those who give so much of their time to the operations of CPSA, and help to organize wonderful events such as convention week. Thanks for all your hard work.
