Located in the Harbor II/III ballroom, the Arisia 2023 Art Show featured work by 65 artists including our Artist Guest of Honor Reiko Murakami hung salon style on 500 linear feet of portable wall space and 126 linear feet of table space for 3D works. Subject matter included science fiction, fantasy, space, and other speculative subjects, in a wide variety of media.

At Arisia 2024, we had 1294 for-sale and 13 not-for-sale originals, and 2100 copies of 478 prints, on 120 panels and 22 tables. Of these, we sold 254 originals and 414 copies of 205 prints to 302 different buyers for a total of $24,278.31 plus tax. Out of 65 artists with work for sale, 56 sold work.

The Arisia 2023 Art show will be curated by our Guest of Honor, Winona Nelson and others.

Applications for entry are open now and close on August 15th.

There is a small hanging fee, but no commission is charged on sales. Unlike most other science fiction convention art shows, sales at Arisia are at fixed price only. More information is available on the rules and fees page.

More information about the Art Show, including sales statistics, are available on last year's website.
