Florida Watercolor Needs You!

During last September's Florida Watercolor Society's Convention in Ocala, there were four sessions of silent auction items and raffle items to raise our funds for scholarship, convention and exhibition expenses. Yes, we regularly get donations from our trade show vendors and art material suppliers, but it's not enough to provide a full selection of items for our conference attendees. You can help here by donating something to FWS!

These donations don't necessarily have to be related to art: jewelry, house wares, museum admissions, crafts, books, cards or any other items are most welcome. Perhaps you have created other craft or artistic items, other than watercolors, that you might share. Perhaps a giclée print of your work. Gift cards, books, DVD's and art supplies are also welcome.

You can also ask your local art store, framer or friends, who are art patrons, for an item or two.  Go through your "stuff" and give a tax deductible donation to help FWS continue to grow and to maintain our promise for continual excellent, convention, watercolor educational and exhibition opportunities.

To arrange for your donation before the convention or other inquiries, please contact Kim Minichiello, 2nd VP at kimminichielloart@me.com
