This year's Art Show will showcase original works by Official Artist Dean Morrissey, as well as many other artists from the New England states and beyond, on up to 100 panels plus about a dozen tables for 3-D work, mostly dedicated to selling items by written bid. It will also include a Print Shop, with 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.

We're back at Westin this year, and the Art Show will again share space with the Hucksters' Room – this time sections A & B of the Grand Ballroom, one floor below the hotel's lobby.

If you are an artist interested in exhibiting at the Boskone 45 Art Show, please see our Artists' mailing. If you wish to resell at the Boskone 45 Art Show art which you have previously purchased, please see our Resale mailing.
