During our second year of commemorating of the War of 1812, the 2013 CLA Fund Raising Auction promises to be another significant event. Twenty-five generous CLA artists have stepped forward to create their art and donate it to be auctioned at our Annual Meeting and Show on August 17, in Lexington, Kentucky.
Everyone is in for a real treat. Not only will you be getting an advance preview of the 2013 fund raising auction items here, but you will have an opportunity to get to know these artists, learn a little about them and how they created this fine array of items for the auction. Individual works will be added to this site as they are received, so visit often to see these new exciting creations.
The commemoration of the War of 1812 began last year with a wonderful selection items. These can be seen in the past CLA auction articles listed here. While all are significant in their own right, to me as a teacher Indiana History, the most meaningful of last year’s items was a bench copy of Tecumseh’s flintlock. Check out the article here.
I’m sure the auction items this year will be as well received as those from last year. Check back often to see the new items and to learn about the artists who made them. With twenty-five of our best artists providing the auction items, this will be a “must see” CLA Show. Join the CLA today and mark August 17 on your calendar.
Take time to look over the Contemporary Longrifles Association site. The photo gallery will give you an idea of what we’re all about. And, check back here to see the uploads of the next auction items.
