This year's Art Show will showcase original works by Official Artist Donato Giancola, as well as many other artists from the New England states and beyond, on up to 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, and a resale area where anyone may enter previously-purchased items that they wish to sell. Art programming is expected to include demonstrations, discussions, critiques, and dueling easels.

The Art Show will be located on the second floor in half of the Back Bay Ballroom.
