We Want You!
Capricon XXIV, Sensawondah, is looking for art of all kinds. Express your sense of wonder by sharing your artistic efforts with us.
Below you will find the guidelines and instructions for submitting artwork to the convention, whether bringing it with you, or sending it to us.
I truly hope that you will allow us to share your vision of the wonders around us.
-- Lisa Hunter, Art Show Director
Your art should be of a Science Fiction or Fantasy related theme and must not
violate existing Copyrights or Trademarks.
Hanging Art: Space is allocated in 4' x 4' pegboard panels (pegboard hooks and binder
clips will be provided)
The cost will be $4.00 per unit (see Display Space for description and measurements).
All submitted pieces start out in the silent auction, with a Minimum Bid set per piece by the artist. Bidding proceeds with subsequent written bids by the attendees (whole dollar amount increases.) Pieces receiving four bids will go to the Art Auction on Saturday for further bidding. (This is an increase of one additional bid from last year.) If a piece receives the minimum bid but less than four bids, it is sold to the highest bid on the Bid Sheet. Items not receiving a minimum bid will be returned to the artist.
Four bids on a piece will send it to the Voice Art Auction, held Saturday evening. Bidding starts at the last written bid on each piece and proceeds (by whole dollar amounts) until a final bid has been placed. If no additional bids are received, the piece will be sold to the highest bid on the Bid Sheet.
This year's challenge is to submit a piece of art that combines a goat plus two of the three following elements: A Vespa, a telescope, and/or a griffon. The interpretation of this challenge is up to you.
This year the official charity of Capricon XXIV is The American Brain Tumor Association. The American Brain Tumor Association exists to eliminate brain tumors through research and to meet the needs of brain tumor patients and their families. The Art Show waives all commissions on these pieces, thus allowing the donation of the full purchase price. Donated items are assigned a minimum bid of $1.00 and always go to the Art Auction. The Art Show reserves the right to limit the number of items accepted for charity.
The awards are determined by an open vote of the attendees and the results will be
announced at the beginning of the Art Auction, Saturday Night. The awards will be
presented at the Closing Ceremonies on Sunday. There are five awards this year:
All prints must be labeled with the artist's name, title of the piece and print shop price. There is no maximum number of pieces which may be entered to the Print Shop All prints must have a protective covering and we highly recommend that they be mounted, matted or framed. This will ensure that they remain in good shape and attractive to buyers. Display will be on the Print Shop pegboard display boards and tables as space allows, in boxes for leafing through after that.
Upon receipt of your completed reservation form, we will send you the Artist Registration Package which will include Control Sheets for the Art Show and/or Print Shop, and Bid Sheets that can be duplicated as you need. The completed Bid Sheets must be attached to each piece of art (if this is not feasible due to the nature of the art, it is your responsibility to ensure that it is obvious which Bid Sheet goes with each piece). Each Bid Sheet must have: The Artist's Name, Title of the Work, Medium, Artist's Status (Pro/Semi-Pro/Fan), Type of Work (Original/Reproduction) and Minimum Bid. Unless you can guarantee that a computer designed piece is a "one of a kind", it will be considered a Print. To display a "not for sale piece" write NFS (Not for Sale) across the bidding area of the Bid Sheet. The Control Sheet lists all artworks submitted. Feel free to send your completed sheet ahead of time so that we can enter your information into our system prior to the convention.
All artwork must be received by January 24th, 2003. It should be sent to:
