Silent Auction and Awards Banquet

The Colored Pencil Society Silent Auction is a very popular convention event. This year it began on Wednesday, July 28,  in the hospitality suite and ended on Thursday evening during the membership meeting. The piece that I donated, True Colors, came in as the third contender for the highest bids in the auction. Elizabeth Patterson and Cecile Baird took first and second place respectively.

The awards banquet was particularly meaningful since the Colored Pencil Society was celebrating its Twenty Year Anniversary. Vera Curnow, CPSA founder, gave a memorable talk and introduced a slide show of the history of the Colored Pencil Society. Kay Schmidt, CPSA president, and Paula Parks, CPSA exhibition director, presided over the awards ceremony. My artwork "The Lightness of Being" received one of the top awards, the $1,000 Sanford Prismacolor Award for Exceptional Merit. Best of Show went to "Grapes in a Basket" by Shinji Harada.

Signature status is given to active members who have been accepted into the International show 3 times within 10 years. This was my third time in four years and therefore I gladly received my signature which entitles me to use the initials "CPSA" after my name.

Following is my last set of pictures from the CPSA convention in Santa Clara.
