About our Con
Artist InformationDear Artist/Agent:
I am pleased to announce that I am the Art Show director for the 24th ArmadilloCon. As has always been my policy, I hope to make this show both pleasant and profitable for all the exhibitors and participants. Last year we sold $5,500 in artwork and I hope to beat that amount this year!
Yes, the date has been moved again! But we will be back on Columbus Day weekend soon.
Please send in your space reservation form to my address. Space is limited, so send in your forms as early as possible.
Please include a L(long)SASE with 0.57 (2 oz) postage for your confirmation materials. You will be receiving bid sheets and your artist/print shop control sheets. Please let me know if you need more than 1 control sheet (each has room for 17 pieces). Make as many additional copies of the Bid Sheets as you need. The address for sending mail-in art will be included in these materials.
MAIL-IN ARTWORK All artists shipping to the show must ship prepaid. You should utilize reusable cartons/packing material and must include sufficient postage to cover return shipping and insurance. Please specify in writing which service (UPS, Federal Express, USPS, etc.) you want your art sent back by, and the exact amount of insurance, if any. If no special instructions are given, the art will be returned collect via UPS ground. If you wish shipping fees to be taken from your sales, please let me know ahead of time.
ART SHOW SPACE There is a 15% commission on all artwork sold in the main art show and the auction, and a 10% commission on work sold in the Print Shop. We will have ample space for both 2D and 3D work. Please let me know if you have any special needs (electricity, free-standing artwork, etc.) and I will do everything I can to accommodate you. We will provide hanging hardware (hooks, clips, etc.).
PRINT SHOP Open to exhibiting artists only. 10% commission. The fee will be based on the number of different editions you bring. If you have 50 copies of 1 print, you will be charged for 1.

Price breakdown is as follows: 1-5 prints $5; 6-10 prints $10; 11-15 prints $15; 16-20 prints $20. We will have some space for special displays. If you wish to bring a special display for your art, we will try to accommodate you, but there may be space limitations. All such requests will be handled on a case-by-case basis. Please, no unmatted prints, unless they are individually tubed or protected in some way. Maximum number of individual prints per artist is 20.

VOLUNTEERING Support your fellow artists! We need volunteers! If you would like to help with set up, tear down, the auction or in any other way, please contact me.
If you have questions, comments or suggestions, please feel free to contact me.
Print ShopAll prints must be clearly labeled with the artist’s name, the title, and the print shop price. We encourage shrink-wrapping for the print shop copies to protect against damage from handling.
Both matted and unmatted copies are allowed in the print shop, but unmatted copies must be either packaged in plastic with cardboard backing or rolled into tubes with one matted copy for display. No loose unmatted prints will be allowed in the Print Shop.
The maximum number of different prints per artist is 20.
The print shop will take a 10% commission on all sales.
General InformationAll pieces are sold without any reproduction rights. We will provide a list of pieces sold with the names and addresses of the purchasers if you should wish to negotiate these rights.
Room setup will be Thursday evening and we will be open to artists Friday morning.
Be prepared for the Art Show staff to handle your sold artwork. Please provide packing materials for small 3D objects.
You do not have to be a member of ArmadilloCon 24 to exhibit in the Art Show. However, once the convention begins, everyone must have a convention badge in order to gain access to the show. If you or your agent is attending, please plan to pick up all artwork between the hours of 12:00 and 3:00 pm Sunday.
