Art lovers, assemble!

Our art show features artist selected pieces ranging from art inspired by your favorite shows and games to original art and designs. Some of the art showcased in the art show is for display only and; unfortunately, isn’t available to take home, but the artist will be named and you’ll be able to grab a link to their galleries or contact information so you can follow up with them and possibly work something out. In some cases, the artist may be participating in our Artist Alley so be sure to double check the list and go visit them!

For the collectors, our art auction is one of the best places to get unique art to add to your loot haul. Every piece shown in the auction is available for purchase for you to take home at the end of the weekend. You may even find several pieces from our current and former guests - both US and Japanese. If you’re looking for that original, one-of-a-kind piece of art, make sure you set aside time to join us this year!

The art show also displays all of the auction pieces so that bidders can browse and preview them prior to the auction event. At the artist's discretion, some of the auction art may be made available for quick sale. This means bidders (that’s you!) can elect to pay a fixed price set by the artist when the art is put up for previewing. Any art purchased via quick sale is available for take home immediately or may be left on display during the auction but listed as “sold” allowing you to show off your nifty new purchase.

Art Auction Location & Hours of Operation

The art auction location and hours of operation for both the previewing and auction event will be listed here and posted to our social media channels when available. The auction typically takes place on Saturday afternoon.
