>> View a list of current artists *

Purpose: Provide a consistently high-quality art show for the World Fantasy Convention, focusing on the art of the fantastic.

We are currently tabulating the jury votes. If your art is one of the entries, we will e-mail you in mid=July. We will also be keeping a list of all entrants. If someone has to drop out of the art show, we will contact another entrant.

We will also be sending out fees information at this time. You will be expected to pay this amount in order to be confirmed for the art show.

Please be aware that all art in the show will be original pieces. (The only exception to this is for computer art as in the case of John Picacio. They must be exhibited as single copies of fine art prints or other limited-edition works. They must be labeled as reproductions.) If you have a question regarding whether or not your art is acceptable, please contact us and we will let you know.

Print shop is limitted to World Fantasy artist guests and World Fantasy Artist Award nominees. If you are in one of these two groups, please let us know if you would like to be in the print shop as well so that we can better judge our space. Print shop entries must be in addition to showcasing original art on a panel(s).

I understand that you may have a question regarding this process and our art show. Please don't hesitate to contact us!

Sincerely,
Kimm Antell

New Rules from the World Fantasy board

WFC Art Show Guidelines

 

Purpose: Provide a consistently high-quality art show for the World Fantasy Convention, focusing on the art of the fantastic. 

 

Exhibitors:

 

1. Past WFC artist guests of honor and past and current World Fantasy Best Artist nominees are invited to exhibit their current works.

 

2. Artists who have shown at 3 of the previous 6 WFCs are invited to exhibit their current works.

 

3.  All artists are encouraged to display predominantly new works.

 

4.  All art displayed in the art show should be original pieces with the exception of those artists who do not create the traditional "original" piece of art.  An example of this kind of art would be John Picacio's work that he creates on computer.  Works such as these must be exhibited as single copies of fine art prints or other limited-edition works.  They must also be labeled as reproductions.

 

5. Artists who have not exhibited to WFC regularly should submit their work to be juried.  Please see the website for more details.

 

6.  Five new artists must be accepted into the art show based on the caliber of their work and how well they meet the fantasy theme.


We are please to announce that the following artists have so far been confirmed for the World Fantasy 2006 art show. Please check back for more artists!

* These artists have been accepted because they were previous World Fantasy guests of honor or award nominees, they went through a jury selection or they have exhibited in 3 of the last 6 World Fantasy art shows.
