Art Show Rules
We want your science
fiction and fantasy artwork!
We are looking for volunteers to help this run smoothly and suggestions for arts related programming (an artists jam and some game called exquisite corpse are possibilities). If you have Art Show related questions or suggestions, or want to volunteer contact us at: artshowcapriconorg.
The Unique show starts with a silent auction. Each piece has a "bid sheet" which the artist may mark "NFS" (Not For Sale), or which will set forth the Minimum Bid that the artist will take for that piece. Works that receive four bids during the silent auction are then put in the audible, nay, verbal (even verbose), and frequently hilarious Art Auction on Saturday evening. Over the years, we have been privileged to have great auctioneers, and we expect to be privileged and impressed yet again. All Unique works (NFS included) are eligible to receive awards. Awards are announced and given out at the Art Auction on Saturday.
The winning bidder for a piece is asked to pick up and pay for his, her, or its purchases on Sunday morning, (frequently we also open up for payment late on Saturday; this depends on staffing). Pieces that do not sell are picked up by the artists or mailed back to artists who participate by mail.

SPACE & CHARGES
Pegboard hooks and binder clips will be provided. Space is generally allocated on a first come, first choice basis. We reserve the right to limit the number of panels and tables used by any one artist. Each artist may submit a maximum of 25 pieces.
Our room is large, and I expect space to be available as artists check in Thursday and early Friday. There are no guarantees, however, (OK, the artist GOH has guaranteed space), so send in your reservation (and payment) today.
A reservation form should be posted at our web site soon.
SPACE & CHARGES
We do not have display cases or other ways to secure easily portable pieces. We encourage you to protect your smaller pieces by bringing in your own display case.
