Boskone History
Boskone 41

Art Show

This year's Art Show will showcase original works by Official Artist Alan Pollack, as well as many other artists from the New England states and beyond, on about 100 panels plus a dozen tables for 3-D work, mostly for sale by written bid. It will also include a Print Shop, which will have hundreds of reproductions available for immediate sale. Art programming is expected to include demonstrations, discussions, critiques, and dueling easels.

If you are an artist interested in exhibiting at the Boskone 42 Art Show, please see our Artists' mailing.

New! For the first time at Boskone we are allowing non-artists to enter previously-purchased items in the Art Show for resale. If you would like to do this, see the resale rules and entry form (HTML or PDF) or write to us for a paper copy.

Note to artists: The BidSheet mailing has been sent. The full text, and all of the associated forms, are available here.
