Art Show

The OryCon Art Show brings together a diverse community of artists and craftspeople whose work is united in the common experience, and expression, of the fantastic. Graphical representations of worlds which exist only in our imaginations rendered in an array of media side by side with soft-sculptured dragons and daleks. Perhaps your tastes run toward mixed media delights. We’ve featured works using such arcane techniques as en-caustic, and taxidermy as well as collage and appliqué. Whether it’s purely decorative or more practical, the Art Show is the place for the unique and the interesting.

Aside from the amazing art, we have a range of activities which occur in the space during the convention. Check the program guide to find scheduled Sketch Book Critiques, Docent Tours, Kinetic Sculpture Races, and even Body Painting Demos.

If you’d like to participate in the Art Show, the rules and forms are available to download at the bottom of the page. If you have any questions please address them to artshow[at] Our Art Show Director is Brigid Nelson.
