20th International Convention Reminders

Silent Auction

One of our favorite Convention attractions is the Silent Auction of artworks donated by some of our award winning members.  The bidding will take place in our Hospitality Suite on  Wednesday, August 1 and Thursday, August 2 and builds to a crescendo at our Membership meeting on Thursday evening.  Bidding takes place during the evening meeting and all bidders must be present, or have a surrogate bidder. 

This year we will be able to accept major credit cards which should keep the bidding even more competitive.  There are more than 30 great artworks from which to choose. You can see the Slideshow Preview of the Silent AuctionThis is your chance to own a small but cherished piece of art created by one of your favorite artists.
