Calling All Artists and Regional Groups!!!!!
We need your baskets for our silent auction for KyAEA conference this fall! If you know what your region will be doing their basket theme on please pass on the information as soon as possible to Shelly Clark so that she can send it out to everyone.
Shelly Clark needs a list of what is in your basket and an approximate value to it so that she can have papers ready for the bidders before conference.
Those of you at colleges - could you please see if you could get basket items donated from your college to create extra baskets?
Artists/ teachers - we would love to see everyone donate one item for the silent auction. You have awesome work out there. Take a tax deduction and donate a piece. If you have a picture of your work ahead of time it would be great for others to see it early.
Thanks for your support for KyAEA in advance!
