Art Show Rules


Katsucon Art Show Rules


 2:   NO PHOTOGRAPHY: Videotaping also falls under this prohibition. If you have snuck in a camera and are seen using it, it WILL be confiscated and turned in to Security for the duration of the convention and you will be escorted from the Art Show. ONLY PROFESSIONAL MEDIA WITH WRITTEN PERMISSION FROM THE CONVENTION CHAIRMAN AND ARTISTS ARCHIVING THEIR OWN WORK ARE EXEMPT.

 3:   ALL PACKAGES, LONG COATS AND CLOAKS, and CAMERAS AND WEAPONRY MUST BE CHECKED AT THE DOOR: You will not be permitted in the Art Show until such items are safely stowed. It’s as much for your security as for the Art Show’s security AND the safety of the artists’ work.

4:    DO NOT TOUCH ANY PIECE OF 3-D ARTWORK:; unless written/posted permission has been posted by the Artist

 5:   NO FOOD OR DRINK IS ALLOWED INTO THE ART SHOW: If you should have any food or drink with you, finish consuming it outside the Art Show before entering. You will not be permitted into the Art Show if you do not comply.

6:   BIDDERS MUST PROVIDE PAYMENT BY NOON ON SUNDAY: Payment can be made before this time, either during or immediately after the art auction Saturday night. If payment is not received by this time, the art will be returned to the artist. NO EXCEPTIONS. We are also required to collect sales tax.

7:   ADULT ART MUST BE PLACED IN THE ADULT SECTION OF THE ART SHOW: Adult art is defined as sexually explicit or highly graphic work. If there are any questions/concerns regarding your art and if it falls within this category, please reach out to Art Show staff and/or the Art Show Director. If your art is classified as Adult Art, it will be placed in the Adult Art Section of the Art Show. Please note-no one under the age of 18 will be permitted in the Adult Art section during the convention.

8:   QUICK SALES: Quick Sale pricing on artwork will only be active after 3 PM on Friday. We request that if you choose to do a Quick Sale on a piece that you notify Art Show staff and that you don’t pick it up until Sunday morning (to allow the Artist to get exposure during the convention), unless you are only there for that day.

9:   BIDDING: Bidding is open from 1 PM Friday until 7 PM on Saturday. The Art Show will close for a short time, then re-open to the public until 8 PM on Saturday to allow bidders to check on items to see if they have gone to the Live Auction.
