Defying the slumping economy, the International Decorative Artisans League’s recent 24th Convention and Exposition enjoyed its highest attendance in three years, with scores of classes and exhibitors and hundreds of decorative artisans from across the United States and five foreign countries.

IDAL also elected its new officers at the event, held in July in Memphis. They are: President Amy Ketteran, Ketteran Studios (Maryland); Vice President Linda Banning, La Mura Bella (Florida); Treasurer Carolyn Blahosky, Stencilwerks (Pennsylvania); and Secretary Susan Mathers, Decadent Design (Missouri).

Newly elected board members are Leslie Nesbitt, Rhythmic Walls (Maryland); and Carolyn Blahosky.
 
IDAL’s liaisons are:

• Linda Banning, Business

• Carolyn Blahosky, Nominations, Certification and Finance

• Susan Mathers, Special Projects

• Margaret von Kaenel, Convention

• Pamela Hernandez, Education

• Annie Lemarie, Marketing/PR

• Leslie Nesbitt, Chapters & Membership

• Julie Stonehouse, Communications

The IDAL show drew positive reviews from vendors, teachers and attendees, some of whom had come from England, Italy, Russia, Japan, Brazil and Canada.

“Memphis had the largest attendance we’ve had in the past three years, despite the uncertain economy,” said Penny Sitler, IDAL’s Executive Director.  “We also saw tremendous interest from artisans, designers and contractors in the Memphis region.”

IDAL’s next show is set for July 21-25, 2010, in Portland, Ore. Information on that convention will be available soon at www.decorativeartisans.org.  Class information will be posted on the website in March, and registration will also begin in March. 

The International Decorative Artisans League is an international non-profit organization dedicated to the promotion and preservation of the art of stenciling and related decorative painting.
