This year's Art Show will showcase original works by Official Artist Stephan Martiniere, 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 share space with the Hucksters' Room and the Con Suite – this time in the Galleria, one floor below the hotel's lobby.
If you are an artist interested in exhibiting at the Boskone 46 Art Show, please see our Artists' mailing.
Everyone who has already requested information or who entered work in the Art Show at one or more of Boskones 43, 44, and 45 is being sent either a paper mailing or email notification that the mailing is available. Anyone else can either access the mailings here or request a paper copy of either by sending email to firstname.lastname@example.org, by sending a FAX to 617-776-3243, or by writing to Boskone 46 Art Show; P.

New Resale Scheme for the Art Show
We’re excited to announce a new method of resale in the Art Show. There will be only a minor upfront cost ($1 per piece), and we will charge a 10% commission on sales (to be capped at $100 per piece). So, if your piece fails to sell, it will only cost you $1!
