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.
We WILL AGAIN be offering our Young Artists’ Showcase this year. If you are a budding Hildebrandt, Whelan or Rowena, and you are 12 years of age or under, we invite you to showcase your work with us! We will accept two or three pieces of artwork per artist and display them in a special area of our Art Show. Young artists who attend the convention will be allowed to hang their work at no charge; young artists who would like to mail in their work can do so as well. All we ask is return postage to mail the art back to you. By giving them a special venue, we hope to encourage budding artists to develop their talents. Our complete guidelines will be provided upon request.
