Among the artworks featured in this year’s silent auction is a signed and numbered limited-edition print of the Ward H. Nichols painting The Gutenberg Creation, commissioned in 1981 by the Gutenberg Museum of Mainz, West Germany, and the Printing Industry of the Carolinas (PICA) Foundation.

It’s time to think about a donation to the annual silent auction benefiting the Texas Newspaper Foundation. 
Items will be on view and bidding will be open Thursday evening, Jan. 24, and Friday morning, Jan. 25, during the trade show at the TPA 2019 Convention at the Embassy Suites by Hilton Denton Convention Center.

Texas Press Association members can learn about options for digitally archiving their newspapers at TPA’s 2019 Convention and Trade Show Jan. 24-26 at the Embassy Suites by Hilton Denton Convention Center.
Digital archiving is just one topic on the agenda for the convention, the first since TPA members voted to have one annual meeting.
