Despite a sloppy spring snowstorm in Boulder, CO over Mother's Day, the sun is shining and gardens are showing the telltale signs of spring here in the Rockies. And you know what that means: Spring Cleaning! If the spirit moves you and you are longing to see your horizontal surfaces again, Chiquita Auctianna would like to remind you that whatever you are not using in your studio would make a most delightful addition to the Annual Auction to be held Tuesday night of conference week (that's July 15th for you calendar-types). So clean out those closets and set those donations aside for the Annual Auction! Remember, the more room you reclaim in your studio, the more you can bid for the night of the auction...

In case you weren't already excited at the prospect of what will be up for grabs, here is a teaser from our book department: a brand, spankin'-new copy of John Gurche's incredible book, Shaping Humanity and James Gurney's show-stopping Color and Light both generously donated by Chiquita's pal, Hubbdub von Grubblestub. (See what a classy auction this is shaping up to be? My, my.) (Note: not all auction items need to be books written by men whose last names are six letters beginning with the letters G-U-R. If you have items that fall outside this exclusive category, please do not be discouraged. Add to our diverse offerings!)

As a reminder, donations may be brought to the conference and dropped at the Registration Desk. Alternatively, support your local postal service (they really need it!) and mail it to:
