Once again the Art Show is located in the Empire Room on the 2nd Floor, down the hallway towards the pool. Artwork is displayed on a first-come, first-served basis from well-known artists all over the country, and some amazing artists locally. We’re sure you’ll find something you’ll like to take home! All artwork is available for bidding and Quick Sale purchase, unless otherwise indicated. Here’s your chance to own a great piece of artwork that you might not be able to find anywhere else.
Please remember that a written bid is the same as making a promise. Writing in your bid on a bid sheet indicates a sincere intention to purchase that piece. Please consider your choice carefully before putting a bid on anything. Once written, we prefer that the bid not be crossed out. If you do change your mind, please notify the art show staff.
Leftover, unpaid-for art (aka foundlings). If you placed a bid on a piece of artwork, you and only you are responsible for discovering if you are the winning bidder, so please check back frequently and be sure to pick up your artwork after the bidding closes on Saturday. The Art Show will hold the artwork for six weeks and make two concerted attempts to contact winning bidders on foundling art abandoned in the art room following the convention; however, please be advised that all foundling art that has to be mailed or delivered after the art show will suffer an additional minimum fee of $10.00 plus shipping and handling. Any questions, comments or concerns should be taken to the Art Show Director, Michael Byrne, or the Art Show staff.
PLEASE NOTE: No electronic or photographic imaging of displayed artwork is allowed. Ever. ABSOLUTELY no cameras, bags, backpacks, purses, food, drink, smoke, voluminous cloaks, long coats, jackets, canes, carts or such items not necessary for walking or physical transportation, quarter staves, longbows, or other items that may be regarded potentially dangerous toward causing damage to or theft of artwork are permitted in the Art Show display space. A claim check area will be provided.
