The many different sections of the Dragon Con Art Show

Quick Orientation

Art Gallery: The art Gallery has many types of space available to display your artwork. We use a standard 4' x 4' pegboard for hanging space and have many combinations of art Gallery space listed on the Art Show application form (Available online during an open Jury submission round). We have 6' x 30" tables available, as well as floor space (also 6' x 30"). More detailed information about the Art Galley is available by clicking the "Artist Rules" link to the left. There is a 15% commission charged on all artwork sold in the art Gallery.

Print Shop: The Art Show has a large area to display and sell a limited number of prints per artist called the Print Shop. More detailed information about the Print Shop is available by clicking the "Artist Rules" link to the left. There is a 15% commission charged on all artwork sold in the Print Shop.

Mail-In Art: We accept mail-in artwork on a limited case-by-case basis only. More detailed information about Mail-In Art is available by clicking the "Artist Rules" link to the left.

Discussions And Demonstrations: An excellent way to promote yourself is to share some of your experience on one of our panels within the Art Show Programming presentations. If you are interested in: doing a demonstration, being included on programming or panel discussions, doing a slide show of your artwork or just have some great ideas for Art Show Programming, please let us know by the deadline of July 1, 2017. The sooner we know about your talents or ideas, the more likely they are to be included with this years programming schedule. Although we have access to many types of equipment to show artwork, please do not assume that your desired equipment will be readily available. While we will make every effort possible to supply requested equipment needs, it is the artist's responsibility to comunicate those requests or any other needs to the Art Show Directors before or by the previously mentioned deadline.
