At this show, which is referred to by members as the “in-house show,” the Douglas County Public Library in Minden is invited to choose one painting to go into their permanent collection. This painting, purchased by CVAA, is given to the library as a token of appreciation for the use of the meeting room.

If purchased, the historical society will use their painting as part of its fund-raising auction in August. The county government will hang its painting in an appropriate public building, if the choose to purchase.
