DemiCon 19: May 2-4, 2008
DemiCon 19 is pleased to have Mitchell Davidson Bentley as our Artist Guest of Honor.
His work stands at the intersection of high art, illustration and graphic design by drawing from art movements and disciplines spanning two
millenia. He incorporates traditions of narrative, Surrealism, and abstraction in compositions that explore beauty, science and fantasy.
His themes express the hopeful expansion of humanity into the cosmos and celebrate the ever-increasing body of scientific knowledge that will
create our collective future. Check out his web site, Atomic Fly Studios.
The DemiCon Art Show is one of the finest in the Midwest.
We get artists of all fannish
genres from all over the world (though many of them are from
the Midwest). So, if you are
looking for wonderful Science Fiction and Fantasy art,
look no further;
DemiCon is the place for you!
If you are an artist, DemiCon is a wonderful place to sell your
art. Additionally, if you wish to improve your technique,
and/or try something new, there will be
professional artists at the convention who can offer advice.
Artists at the convention will also be giving art demonstrations
and leading discussion groups.
There will be an Art Show Tour in which visiting artists and
convention attendees 'tour' the Art Show discussing anything from artistic techniques to
"Ooh, I like that one."
There will be space (and some really natural lighting during the day) in the
show itself where you can pick up a brush or other such utensil
and let your creativity roam.
Convention attendees will be able to bid, and make
quick sale purchases
on pieces in the art display area as well as purchase
print shop pieces. We accept
cash and check; however, we are not able to accept
credit cards from buyers. The
Art Show will be open for sales and viewing for
several hours each day and pieces
will also be sold at auction on Saturday night.
Convention attendees will pay
for and pick up any art they purchase on Sunday
between 10:00am and 12:00pm.
