There will be a Watercolor Society of Oregon convention on Friday to Sunday, April 5-7, 2013 (next year) in Albany and we will need a lot of helpers in order to make the convention a success. People helping do not have to be watercolor artists and do not have to live in Albany. It will just be a good way for all local artists in the Mid Valley to rally around a common goal–bring more attention to the visual arts that are available and maybe generate some new interest to people who never noticed the arts around them.
People do not have to be in charge of any particular sub committee . One specific need is ideas for centerpieces for the banquet tables. If anyone knows how to make inexpensive but attractive arrangements, please let Stephanie know. Also needed will be names of vendors to contact and businesses that can offer gift certificates and awards for the winning paintings. As you can tell there are lots of ways people can volunteer. These conventions are lots of fun–a great place to meet very accomplished artists, learn new ideas and be around like minded people.
Anyone wanting to help or more specific information regarding the sub-committees should contact Stephanie Low at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanking you in advance for any help you can offer to spread the word about the WSO Convention.
