Fundraising Raffle for our Chapter

Three members of our New England District Chapter 112 of CPSA have donated gicleƩ prints for a raffle to fundraise for our chapter. Our recent exhibit at a gallery, which was enjoyed by many, unfortunately depleted our funds due to the usual gallery costs; invitations, postage, opening reception. We are hoping to find our chapter out of the red soon. Please help us by purchasing raffle tickets, the information is on the poster or you can leave a message here. Thanks!

CPSA Chapter Display is ready for Nationals in Dallas!

Thank you to everyone who contributed an original 3 x 3 inch drawing for our chapter display at the National Convention in Dallas next week! I put the pieces together yesterday after a trip to Dick Blick's for supplies, and made the top banner today. The most important requirement (after getting all of these wonderful miniatures) is that it fit inside my suitcase. The banner will have to be re-attached when I get to Dallas. I still have to create a stand for the back so that it will stay upright on the display table. I'm excited that our chapter will have a contribution to the Hospitality Suite. I'm also going to type up a "key" that will read from top to bottom, left to right, with each artist's name and contribution.

(I hope the handwritten banner looks okay to everyone? I thought about doing something on the computer, but felt it might be more personal to do it this way. Anyone want me to change it?)
