IF YOU DO NOT PRE-REGISTER, WE CANNOT GUARANTEE WE WILL BE ABLE TO PROVIDE THE SPACE YOU REQUEST.
To pre-register, simply send an e-mail to the above e-mail address with your name, address, whether you are a mail-in or an attending artist and how many panels and/or tables you will require. No control sheet is required until you send us your art. Mail-in artists can send us the non-attending fee and return shipping costs in advance (we won’t say no to money!) or they can send it when they send in their art.
Registration with the convention is required; mail-in artists pay a $15.00 non-attending fee.
Due to space considerations, we will be limiting the amount of art we can display:
2D art (art displayed on panels) – 30 PIECES OR NO MORE THAN 3 PANELS
3D art (art displayed on tables) – 15 PIECES
If you’d like to bring/mail in more than the above, you are welcome to do so. However, please list your pieces on your Control Sheet in order of preference in case we cannot display them all.
There is no hanging fee for items entered for sale; however the Art Show does collect a 12% commission on all sales.
Bid sheets will be prepared BY US for all mail-in artists.
We WILL AGAIN offer items for quick sale. When the Art Show opens on Saturday or Sunday morning, if a piece of art has no bids on it, it may be purchased as the quick sale price.
