We would like to cordially invite you to be a part of the Sci-Fi Summer Con 2004 Art Show.  This year Sci-Fi Summer Con 2004 will be located at the Atlanta Crown Plaza Perimeter NW Hotel, which is in the northern part of the most populated areas in Atlanta, Ga.   Atlanta and the surrounding areas have a large population in the millions. The area has a lot of high tech and entertainment industries that provide a large number of above average salary jobs. This makes Atlanta an ideal place and time to sell art. After the great Sci-Fi Summer Con art show we had in 2003 we expect buyers will be waiting at the door for us to open. 

Panel discussions and demonstrations are very important to the Art Show. If you would like to do a demonstration, be included in programming or panel discussions, do a slide show, or just have some great ideas for art programming, please let us know. The sooner we know your talents or ideas the more likely they are to be included.


Our company, Warpstar Visions, is running the art show in partnership with Sci-Fi Summer Con. If you have any questions about the Art Show, we can be reached by e-mail at: artshow@sfscon.org . You can call us at (404) 894-6696 or use our Warpstar Visions mailing address at:

Sci-Fi Summer Con 2004 Art Show Buyer and Attendee Orientation

We would like to cordially invite you to be a part of the Sci-Fi Summer Con 2004 Art Show. The Sci-Fi Summer Con 2004 Art Show is a very large and diverse event. It is a very active and exciting function. Art is all about capturing new ideas in one form or another. It's about doing something none has ever done before. One of our goals is to make every attendee that visits the art show say "WOW, I never thought of that before!"

Here's another point. Art is the beginning of many of the creations you as a sci-fi, fantasy, horror, space fan have come to love and cherish over the years. Many of the game developers, writers, movie directors and other creators were in one way or another inspired by the type of art work we have in our art show. Your active participation in the art show helps to start a new wave of creativity for future works. Now let's look at what's inside the Sci-Fi Summer Con 2004 Art Show.


The Art Gallery
In the main art show room the majority of the space is used by the art gallery. The art gallery consists of all the hanging panels, 3-D free standing art in the middle of the room, and all tables not in one of the artist bazaars along the perimeter walls. Please don't feel rushed. Take the time to look at each piece. All artwork will have a piece ID sheet with prices and places to write bids.

The Print Shop :
Adjacent to the art gallery is the print shop featuring limited edition prints from artists in the show. These items are available for the marked price.

Art Show Programming :
You want to learn how they make these wonderful creations. How about watching artists in drawing contests? If your an artist, you can also learn many tips and tricks to help improve and market your art. The art show programming has a huge variety of items for both the attendee and the artist.

The Art Show Art Silent Auction :
Each piece in the art gallery has a sheet of paper attached to it which shows you the prices and also let's you write a bid (See rules below). From the time we open Friday until Sunday 12 pm you can write in a bid on any piece in the art gallery as long as it's at least $1 above the minimum bid price or the last bid someone else placed on the sheet and there are no more than 3 bids on the piece. This time period is called the silent auction. Once a piece has 3 bids on that sheet no more bids can be written on the sheet and it's marked to go to the voice auction where you can try to win it there.

The Art Show Art Voice Auction :
So you found a piece of work that you really must take home. But when you went to buy it someone had already put a bid on it. Now you must go to the art voice auction and win that piece at all costs! The art auction isn't just for the buyers but it's also great entertainment. From the auctioneers building up the pace of the bids to the buyers who can battle it out in an exhaustive contest.
