Arisia has one of the largest science fiction & fantasy Art Shows in the Northeast.
For 2013, our Artist Guest of Honor will be Roger Dean. Roger Dean is probably most famous for his covers of the "Yes" albums.
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! You can find the Art Show downstairs in the Galleria Hall, next to the Dealers Room.
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 feature the option of proxy bidding to this year's art show auction. With a proxy bid, you don't have to make it to the Galleria at the exact moment the silent auctions close. Of course, traditional bidding will still be available as well. The Art Show Live Auction will occur at 4pm on Sunday.
