Arisia '10

Countdown to the Con:

Art Show

Arisia has one of the largest science fiction & fantasy Art Shows in the Northeast.

Because of our diverse community we will show works by new and upcoming artists as well as works by established artists in the fields of Science Fiction and Fantasy. Most of these works will be available for sale to members of the convention and will range in price from one dollar to thousands of dollars, as set by their creators. Work will be both two dimensional and three dimensional, shown on hangings, or tables, or very occasionally on the floor. You can't beat our show for variety and interest.

Please set aside at least two hours during your convention experience to come and see the Art Show. You'll be glad you did!

There will be a series of docent tours of the Art Show, including an accessible tour. Check the program schedule for details.

To go along with our popular quicksale option, we're adding the option of proxy bidding to this year's art show silent auction. With a proxy bid, you don't have to make it to the top of the hotel at the exact moment the silent auctions close. Of course, traditional bidding will still be available as well.

The art show is sold out, but we have had a few cancellations and can probably fill requests for one or two panels of space (sorry, no more half panels). If you have previously communicated with us about space but have not yet paid, please visit the online reservation page to reserve your space. Otherwise, if you are interested in exhibiting in the art show, please read the letter to artists and Art Show Rules and Fees, and then contact us at artshow@arisia.org to inquire about the waiting list.

The paper reservation form is available for reference. You might also want to read the Frequently Asked Questions.
