Many thanks to those individuals who have donated monographs, catalogs, and other goodies to the Silent Auction.  However, we are still in NEED of auction items!  Chapters and institutions are encouraged to donate.  This is an important fund raising event for ARLIS/NA.  Proceeds benefit the speakers fund, ARLIS/NA awards, and programs of the Society.

Auction items may include jewelry, art works, ceramics, handicrafts, wine, CD’s and a wide array of other items.  BE CREATIVE!


Are you artistic?

  • Frame a photograph, print or painting
  • Put together a creative “kit”… art supplies, quilting or sewing supplies, origami paper, rubber stamps with ink pads…use your imagination
  • Design a set of greeting cards and/or stationary
  • Create an artist’s book
  • Make some unique tree ornaments (it’s never too early)
  • Sew a baby quilt
  • If you can make it, someone will want it!

Think outside the box:

  • Put together an assortment of coveted kitchen accessories or condiments
  • Arrange a basket of edibles that represent your city or town
  • Gather a sumptuous array of “spa” items
  • The sky is the limit!
