CoastCon Art Show, Auction, and Sale

Calling ALL Makers, Artisans, Artists and Art lovers: thank you for your interest in the CoastCon 4 Art Show, Auction & Sale.  Our show consists of artwork for viewing and/or purchase throughout the weekend with an auction on Sunday and it features both three-dimensional and two-dimensional art in a variety of media within the themes of science fiction, fantasy, anime/manga, gaming, and/or comics.  The art show, auction & sale has been an important part of the convention since our very first CoastCon.  For CoastCon 42, we plan to continue the forty-plus year tradition of great art and great artists that is a part of the CoastCon hallmark, in part by once again encouraging artists from around the country to submit art to our art show, auction and sale.  Our art show encourages two-dimensional and three-dimensional art in a wide variety of formats, mediums and styles from both professional and amateur artists.  Interested artists (and we hope that you are)- you will find the rules for the show/auction/ print shop linked below along with a registration form, bidding sheets, and control sheets in both PDF and Word formats. Please fill out these sheets as completely as possible and send those completed forms to the address listed in the art show packet/on the art show rules sheet- either with your art or in advance of it. Our forms are available for your use and copying as needed. We recommend all registration forms and payments be sent by February 25, 2019 [via mail or email] in order to reserve your spot. 

A few important points- mailed artwork must be received by March 4, 2019. You may also deliver your work to the convention in person on Friday, March 8, between 9:00 am and 1 p.m. Please contact us via mail or email before the February 25 deadline if you choose to hand deliver your work. While we encourage you to join us at CoastCon, you do not have to attend the convention to show/sell your work in our art show. Space is limited and is available on a first come, first served basis. Feel free to contact me via the CoastCon art show link if you have any questions at artshow@coastcon.org.

Thank you and I look forward to selling you work this year.
