We are thrilled you want to participate in the Escapade Art Show.

Step 1 is to let us know you’re interested by filling out an artist profile

Feel free to do this early on, even before you’ve started your art! This doesn’t commit you to anything, but it makes sure you are on our radar for reminder emails as the convention approaches.

Step 2 is to register each artwork you plan to bring

If you are able to register in advance we can have your paperwork printed out and ready to go so you can speed through the check-in process. Simply fill out a “Submit Art” form separately for each piece sometime before midnight on the Wednesday before the convention. If you don’t manage that, we will also be well-stocked with blank paper bid sheets to accommodate those last minute visits from your muse.

Step 3 is to get the art to the convention.

The easiest way is to bring the art to Check-in on the Friday of the convention from 1-2pm. If you are unable to attend the convention in person, please email to make other arrangements.

Other Things to Know

Other Things to Know

  • All art must be matted or otherwise ready for display. We display art on tables (if it’s flat, propped up on a cardboard display stand); we can’t guarantee you a particular space or kind of display, but in practice we have always been able to accommodate special needs.
  • In order to keep the art show exciting for viewers, please submit only one copy of any particular piece. Each artist or seller may submit up to ten pieces.
  • We welcome original art, resales from your collection, prints and computer-generated art, 3D pieces, crafts, non-art items of fannish interest, and pretty much anything else that seems of interest to Escapade attendees.
  • We will be open for art check-in on Friday afternoon. The art show will be open for viewing on Friday evening and Saturday. The auction is held Sunday morning for items that receive multiple bids during the art show.
  • Plan to stop by the art show on Sunday after the auction to pick up any unsold art and/or any money you may have earned from sales.
