The Art Libraries Society of North America's Conference Planning Committee is very pleased to announce that a members' exhibition and silent auction benefiting the Society will be held during the 2005 annual conference in Houston.
Members who are artists are encouraged to contribute their works of art to the silent auction. Works will be exhibited during the conference prior to the auction. We request that a digital image of the artwork accompany the donation form so that we have a visual representation of the item. Please review the guidelines for details.
An online exhibition showcasing the contributions will go live a week prior to the conference.
We look forward to collaborating with you to make this a successful Society event.
