We would like to invite you to apply for entry in the Boskone 42 Art Show, to be held at the Boston Sheraton Hotel in Boston, Mass. on February 18-20, 2005. Enclosed you will find information about Boskone 42, which will have one of the largest Science Fiction & Fantasy Art Shows of any East Coast regional convention.
The Boskone 42 Art Show will include up to 100 panels and a dozen tables; the Print Shop will have up to an additional dozen panels devoted to displaying one copy of each item entered. We encourage diversity by holding some space for new entrants (not exhibiting at Boskone in the last three years) but limiting them to a maximum of ½ panel (3' x 4') or ¼ table (18" x 30"). This limit may be waived if such a waiver appears to benefit the Art Show. We're not that hard to convince; please feel free to try.
The fees charged by the Art Show are hanging fees. No additional charges for commission will be made to artists. Art is sold at Boskone by written bid; a voice auction will be held Sunday for those pieces which accumulate five or more written bids. The Print Shop is available for artists wishing to sell multiple copies of reproductions for a fixed price. You do not need to be a member of Boskone 42 to enter work in the art show, but you must buy a membership if you wish to attend the convention.
The enclosed pages include an entry form (html version / rtf version / pdf version) and the rules of the Art Show. Please read them carefully. Should you have any questions, you may write to us at the above address (please address your letter specifically to the Art Show) or at the electronic mail address or FAX number below.
Because we have a limited amount of space, you should send in your entry as soon as possible to ensure that you're not shut out. We hope to hear from you soon and to see you in February 2005!
