Art Show

DemiCon 19: May 2-4, 2008

DemiCon 19 is pleased to have Mitchell Davidson Bentley as our Artist Guest of Honor. His work stands at the intersection of high art, illustration and graphic design by drawing from art movements and disciplines spanning two millenia. He incorporates traditions of narrative, Surrealism, and abstraction in compositions that explore beauty, science and fantasy. His themes express the hopeful expansion of humanity into the cosmos and celebrate the ever-increasing body of scientific knowledge that will create our collective future. Check out his web site, Atomic Fly Studios.

The DemiCon Art Show is one of the finest in the Midwest. We get artists of all fannish genres from all over the world (though many of them are from the Midwest). So, if you are looking for wonderful Science Fiction and Fantasy art, look no further; DemiCon is the place for you!

If you are an artist, DemiCon is a wonderful place to sell your art. Additionally, if you wish to improve your technique, and/or try something new, there will be professional artists at the convention who can offer advice.

Artists at the convention will also be giving art demonstrations and leading discussion groups. There will be an Art Show Tour in which visiting artists and convention attendees 'tour' the Art Show discussing anything from artistic techniques to "Ooh, I like that one." There will be space (and some really natural lighting during the day) in the show itself where you can pick up a brush or other such utensil and let your creativity roam.

Convention attendees will be able to bid, and make quick sale purchases on pieces in the art display area as well as purchase print shop pieces. We accept cash and check; however, we are not able to accept credit cards from buyers. The Art Show will be open for sales and viewing for several hours each day and pieces will also be sold at auction on Saturday night. Convention attendees will pay for and pick up any art they purchase on Sunday between 10:00am and 12:00pm.
