Art Show

Attention Artists and Art Fans!!!

Thank you for your interest in the CoastCon 40 Art Show, Art Auction and Sale.  Our Art Show and Sale, like our convention, is a three-day fan-run event dedicated to the genres of science fiction, fantasy, comics, gaming, and anime/manga.  We have the honor of being the longest running Art Show of its type on the Gulf Coast and are one of the largest convention shows in our region.  Our show attracts artists from all across the nation.  CoastCon’s Art Show has also had the honor of working with some of the best and the brightest artists in the country – artists like you.  We would like to ask if you would be interested in being a part of our Art show and Sale for our big 40thAnniversary this coming year.

The 2017 CoastCon Art Show will feature both three-dimensional and two-dimensional art in a variety of media within the themes of science fiction, fantasy, comics, gaming, or anime/manga.  The show will consist of art work for viewing or purchase throughout the weekend and there is an auction on Sunday afternoon.  We also provide space for a “Print Shop” to allow for sales of unframed or duplicates of hanging art work.

You will find the rules and paperwork for the Show/Auction/Print Shop in links below as a single PDF packet you can download and/or as individual Word files you can download/complete on your computer. The sheets/Art Show Packet kit includes a registration form, bidding sheets, and control sheets.  Please fill out these sheets as completely as possible so that we may keep track of your work and sales.  We must receive your registration forms and payment by February 21, 2017 in order to reserve your spot.  Mailed in art work and paperwork must be received by February 25, 2017.  You may also deliver your work to the convention site in person on Friday, March 3, 2017 between 9:00 am and 12:00 pm– provided that you have already registered for the show.  Space is limited and is available on a first come, first served basis.

Please contact Art Show Director Frank Schiavo if you have any questions.  I look forward to showing your work and working with you on a successful CoastCon 40 Art Show, Auction & Sale.  Thanks Again!
