FWS could use your silent auction donation

The Florida Watercolor Society will celebrate their 48th Annual Juried Exhibition in Orlando, Florida kicked off with our Convention & Trade Show to be held September 19th through 21st at the DoubleTree Hilton Hotel Orlando at SeaWorld.

Each year we ask members of local art leagues, Societies, Clubs, Associations, etc., for donation items for our Raffles and Silent Auction held during our Annual Convention. We have found that many people have items around their home that are new or gently used that they no longer have a need for and may want to donate. (art supplies, jewelry, art books, housewares, etc.) Some may take advantage of this in their “Spring Cleaning” effort.

If you have items to donate to the auction, bring them to the September 2019 membership meeting.  Leslie Macauley and Pam Merle have volunteered to collect the items that people bring to the September meeting and deliver them to the convention at the Double Tree Hilton Orlando at SeaWorld.

In addition, Diane Lary could use a .jpg of the item and a brief description sent to her email to facilitate the inventorying & pre-planning for the auction.
