More good news regarding Sponsors
CPSA  is proud to welcome Strathmore as another new sponsor.
The Strathmore Paper Company has been in business since 1892 in West Springfield, Massachusetts.  It takes its name from the Valley of Strathmore in England and uses the thistle as its trademark.  Many of you are already familiar with this company's high quality art and printing papers. Learn more about the company and its products, read their Artist Newsletter and learn about their Visual Journey workshops. You can use this link to access this information.  The website also links to this information and that of other sponsors and patrons.
Please support all of our Patrons and Sponsors.
Convention Notes
If you are coming to the convention in Dallas, and we hope you are, the airport recommends advance reservations for shuttles to the hotel.  See the prospectus or the latest CPSA newsletter for those numbers. Also, Dallas has two airports so be sure you have your shuttle reserved at the correct airport.  (DAL = Love Field; DFW = Dallas/Fort Worth International).
The 19th Exhibition is only days from being a reality. The show will be opening June 29th at the Charles W. Eisemann Center  in Dallas.  Paintings have been arriving this week.  We are confident it will be a beautiful show.  The last day to register on line for the Convention and its events is July 1st.
