Attending artists will be paid on Sunday at the convention.
Non-attending artists will be paid within one month of the convention end.
Otherwise, attending artists must pre-register paying regular pre-registration rates (unless other arrangements are made).
Bid Sheets and Art Control Forms
Please fill in all paperwork with the requested information. This includes the Bid Sheets and Control forms.
You will need to fill out the Bid Sheets AND Control Sheet, whether you are attending or mailing in your art. This will help avoid errors.
The Control Sheets and Bid sheets are downloadable at the bottom of this page.
It is your responsibility to fill out the sheets.
Additional forms and bid sheets will be made available at the time of the Art Show.
Please attach bid sheet so it is visible from the front.
Failure to follow these requirements may result in the disqualification of your artwork from hanging in the show.
If you have questions or need assistance on how to fill out the forms please contact the Art Department
Definition of Bid Sheet and Art Control Form Terms
- MIN BID Absolute lowest amount you would consider for the piece in question.
- KWIK SALE Amount the piece would sell for if sold outright. A piece may only sell KWIK SALE if no previous bids have been made.
- SUN SALE Amount you would take on Sunday post-auction, if your work has not otherwise sold. This price is completely optional.
Art Show Restrictions
Art Show submissions will be restricted to include:
- Originals in any medium
- Hand-colored or remarked prints*
- Artist's proofs
- *(Multiple copies of a single print will be placed in the print shop.)
We reserve the right to refuse any artwork that may be construed as offensive.
It takes two bids to send a piece to auction.*
The auction will take place Saturday evening.
(*At the Art Show Committee's discretion, pieces that have not received any bid may be taken to auction.)
Print Shop Rules
If you have purchased panel or table space, you may place prints in the print shop for no additional fee. Otherwise there is a $7.00 processing fee to enter your artwork. All prints must be labeled on the reverse with the following information:
- Artist's Name
- Type of Print (litho, photo, etc.)
- (Optional: Address and phone number)
Mailing Art to Visioncon
If you are unable to attend but wish to participate from the comfort of your own home, you may mail art to the address listed below. It will be stored until the convention and any unsold art will be returned to you post-con.
Please ship by way of your favorite carrier. Please allow two weeks for UPS and three weeks for USPS. This does not include weekends or holidays.
Use sturdy, reusable cartons to ship. Remember that we cannot send back your unsold art if the box is in pieces. Be sure to send enough funds to cover return postage and insurance (if applicable). You are responsible for providing insurance while your package is in transit. The Con Committee will provide security during the con and will bear any costs incurred due to theft or loss while the artwork is in their possession. Be sure to include a label in your package to be used for return shipping. The label should include your FULL STREET ADDRESS AND ZIP CODE. If you have any special packing instructions, we recommend you tape them to the inside lid of your box. That way, the instructions do not become separated from the package.
All packages should reach Visioncon by February 7th, 2017. Any artists who have reserved space whose packages have not arrived by then are likely to throw us in a panic. We can be flexible on the date, but remember that shipping companies are notorious for dragging their feet, especially if they think it may be an important package they are carrying.
