Art Show

The Furry Fiesta Art Show brings a room full of furry themed artwork to our convention attendees in a casual, pleasant atmosphere. Like one of the works on display? Give your favorite piece of art a new home! Most of our pieces will be up for bid in a silent auction style.

You can bid on multiple artworks and as many times as you want to ensure that you are the winning bidder. But you don’t have to be a bidder to enjoy the show. Furs of all species love browsing art and you are no exception, so come on in and see all of the amazing artwork that the Art Show has to offer. Enjoy the show and happy bidding!


Bidding

  1. REGISTER (It’s free as an attendee!) to bid on the artwork in our gallery. If you plan to bid, you must register with the Art Show staff in the Art Show Gallery. This can be done at any time during the show, but must be done before you can place a bid.
  2. VIEW lots of artwork. Identify the pieces you MUST have.
  3. BID on the work by marking your bidder number (not your badge number) with your bid on the bid sheet.
  4. WIN with the top bid and the artwork comes home with you!

Artists

For just $15, you will receive a 4×4′ panel to display your work. Then, without having to staff a table, hundreds of furries will be able to view your art throughout the convention. Established artists continue their relationship with a grateful audience, while newer artists begin to build name recognition. Down the road, the exposure may generate the commissions that can fuel your artistic habits.

Additionally, you can even have it up for bids in our silent auction style art show! 10% of the winning bid will be donated to our charity; everything else goes to you, the artist. Then finally, you’ll know that your art went to a good home with someone wagging tails and all.

While we only allow one registrant per application, you may share panel space. We will require express written consent from every represented artist that it is okay for you to represent them. Proceeds and control sheets will be mailed back to the registrant, who may then disseminate the funds and artwork to the artists they represent.

Registration opens on October 1st

Can’t Attend but want to still show your works?

What if you want to be part of the show but you can’t make it the convention this year? No problem, you can designate an agent who will handle your artwork on your behalf. What if you don’t know anyone locally who can do that for you or your attending friends are rabid? Mail it in! The Art Show is accepting mail-in applications. Simply send your safely packaged art along with a return shipping label and our volunteer staff will hang your work on your behalf. Please have an art tag on the back of your artwork so your art can be identified by the staff.

After the show, unsold pieces will be returned to you in the very same packaging. This is a great option for non local artists and it gives our show a national presence. Remember, shipping can be risky and the convention won’t be responsible for damage done in transit. Please pack your artwork well and consider purchasing insurance. Mail-in artwork is preferred to be mailed in so that it is received no more than 3 days prior to the convention, but there are other options if it must be done before that time.

Please do not mail-in artwork until you know that a panel is reserved for you

All further details for artists are inside the artist contract, including the mailing address.


How to pay

Once we receive your completed packet and your payment, we will reserve a space for you. If you’re mailing in art, please don’t send it until your space is confirmed. If you submit a packet and we’re out of space, we’ll place you on a waiting list. If we sell out and you just didn’t get in, your payment will be returned to you.

We accept payment by Cashier’s Check, Money Order or by Credit Card through PayPal. Our PayPal ID is paypal@furryfiesta.org. No personal checks, please unless previously approved. If you pay through PayPal, please include a copy of your transaction with your registration form.
Bidders

All payments for won art will be handled at the con. Winning bidders will be listed outside of the Art Show after it closes on the final day of bidding.
