Art Show 2013

The TitanCon Art Show has been a huge success over the last few years with every artist selling several pieces of art, for some artists TitanCon is their most successful show ever! Last year's Art Show included a preview on the Friday evening during our Literature Night event and we will be following the same format in 2017. The Art Show preview provides a great opportunity to reach a wide audience since this is a FREE entrance event open to the public.

Our Art Show and programming continues to grow thanks to the efforts of Art Show Director Jane Stewart. This year we will be offering our first life drawing class, with costumed models from Brutal Ballet. Only eight places are available, free of charge, so do sign up if you are interested.

The Art Show itself will feature work by:

The Art Show will be open from 7.45 p.m. until 10 p.m. on Friday night (starting with the Grand Opening and reception) and from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturday.

Update as of 24 August

Our Art Show is now sold out. If you have been accepted into the show, we look forward to seeing you in Belfast! If you have any queries about move-in or other issues, you can contact our Art Show Director by emailing art@titancon.com.

We want to build on the success of our Art Show over the last few years with an open invitation for any artist working in speculative fiction and works of the imagination to display and sell artwork at TitanCon 2017. We would especially love to hear from local artists living in Northern Ireland.

Artwork is hung using velcro strips so we advise you to supply your work mounted and matted. We do have a limited supply of hooks for very heavy or framed work, so please let us know in advance if you need these. We can provide tables for 3D sculpture or for any 2D artwork to be laid flat or proppped up on if that's your preference. There will be a print shop area for any prints or cards you wish to sell, but all prints need to be images of your own artwork.

Space in our Art Show is now available for just £10 which includes your entrance and membership to TitanCon 2017. We will be charging a sales commission fee of 10% on every piece of artwork sold. Our experienced Art Show Supervisor will take care of the entire process for you.

Artists are welcome to attend in person or send artwork to us by post. Any artwork sent via post is done so at the artist's own expense (to and from the show) and TitanCon cannot accept any liability for artwork damaged during transport or while on display at the convention.

There are also opportunities to be offered a guest pass (in which case there is no need to pay the £10 Art Show booking fee) if you're willing to be a programme participant and/or run a practical workshop/demonstration at TitanCon 2017. Please contact us with details about what you could offer TitanCon.

Alternatively you may wish to book a dealer table rather than being in the Art Show.

This is open to professionally published authors, self published authors and also aspiring writers that would like to take advantage of this opportunity.
