    "Saving Places" is Colorado Preservation's annual conference held at the Colorado Convention Center, 700 14th St, Denver, CO 80202. PAAC is invited to display paintings of listed sites in a silent auction, January 31-February 3, 2018. Last year more than half the paintings on display sold, so we are excited to be able to participate again.  This year delivery of paintings must be before 9:30 am on January 31.
    You may bring them to the Convention Center anytime after 7 am. Debby McAllister and Lisa Hut will be there setting up.


    To register: list up to 4 paintings with your name, title of work, size and minimum bid and painting value. If there is still room for more after the registration deadline, we will let you know.

    These paintings will not be juried, but there is a limit to the number we can hang, so registration will be cut off when that number is reached. 

    Requirements: If the listed site includes buildings, they must appear in the painting. Please carry your own insurance on your paintings. PAAC is not responsible for any damage or loss.

    Framing: Each painting should be framed and ready to hang, with wire and d-rings on the back and no sawtooth hangers. They will most likely be on easels behind tables, with the bid sheets in front.  

    Deadline: December 31, 2017 at 5 PM

    Cost to register $20.00

    40% of sales go to Colorado Preservation, 60% to the artist
