Art Show Information

The Anthrocon 2014 Art Show is the best in furrydom, with more than 140 artists participating! As always, it features some of the finest anthropomorphic art from all corners of the globe. Original artwork is sold by written bid, with a voice auction taking place Sunday, July 6 for those pieces which receive enough written bids. Auctioneer Dr. Samuel Conway ("Uncle Kage") returns once again to provide an event that is as much entertainment as it is commerce. We will also have a separate gallery for mature artwork, inaccessible to minors, with a separate voice auction Saturday night.

If you're interested in bidding on artwork:

  1. Sign up for a bidder number in the Art Show. (DLCC Hall C)
    • To save time at the con, the Bidder Rules and Info form is now available for downloading. Read over the rules, fill out and sign the form and bring it with you to the Art Show to get your bidder number.
    • Write your name, bidder number (not badge number) and amount of bid on the bid sheet.
      • Fill in the next open line from the top.
      • Bid only in whole dollar increments.
      • Keep in mind that 7% sales tax will be collected on all sales.
      • Be certain! A bid is a binding obligation to buy the item.
      • Do not cross out anything on the bid sheet.
    • Defend your bid - check on it several times before closing.
      • The Mature Gallery closes Saturday night at 6pm.
      • The General Gallery closes Sunday at noon.
    • Attend the closing of the Gallery.
      • The Art Show crew will begin clearing the room from the back.
      • Stay and defend your bids until the Art Show crew "wall" reaches your location.
      • You can go from piece to piece as needed ahead of the "wall."
      • This is the only way to find out if any of the pieces you're bidding on go to voice auction.
      • If any do, attend the voice auction, as someone can still outbid you there and win!
    • Pick up and pay for your art Sunday afternoon from 2-5pm.
      • If you don't, you will be charged for shipping in addition to the price of the piece (and sales tax).
      • If you will not be here Sunday, ask for a sales pickup authorization to allow someone else to pick up and pay.
      • A limited number of people with early departures may be allowed to pick up starting at 1 pm. Please inquire when signing up for your bidder number.

To reserve display space in the Art Show:

It's too late to send in an advance reservation, but there is usually some leftover space available as artists discover they are unable to fill all the space they reserved.

Artists without reservations may walk-in to claim leftover space at the con after noon on Friday, July 4. Download and read the rules, fill out the Space Reservation form included in the file and bring it with you -- don't mail it! You may also download the Paperwork file in the next section to familiarize yourself with the forms (or if you're really optimistic, to print and fill out your bid sheets -- but please understand there's no guarantee you'll be able to get any space, if enough others claim it all before you arrive).

If you've sent in a reservation for display space:

If you have not received any confirmation or paperwork, please contact the Art Show director immediately! by e-mail at artshow AT or by phone at 307-ARTYFUR (+1 307 278 9387).

If your reservation has been confirmed, you should have already received paperwork and instructions in the mail. You can also download the paperwork below, in Adobe Reader (PDF) format. Important Note: The Control Form is a 3-part, no-carbon-required form, which provides copies for you when you check-in and check-out. If you don't need copies for your records, you may print 1 copy from the PDF to give to us. If you do want copies for your records, print 3 copies, or obtain the 3-part form at the con.

Bid Sheets are included in the big Paperwork file, but also available separately. In both files, the Bid Sheets are PDF forms -- you can type in the info about your pieces, and print! (Mac users: Sorry, some versions of Preview don't handle the form correctly. Please use Adobe Reader if you experience difficulty.)

Sales Payments

Payments for sales are issued within 45 days of the end of the convention. For 2014, that is August 18. That represents a worst-case situation -- in many cases checks are sent much sooner. Of course, allow a few days' delivery time for the check actually to arrive. Payments outside the USA are sent by air mail. International Postal Money Orders can take as much as an extra week to obtain before mailing.
