Our GALLERY has offered attendees the opportunity to view and purchase beautiful and thought-provoking artwork over the past three years, showcasing artists of various levels — from seasoned professionals to those taking their first steps into public viewing.

2015 Gallery Highlights
“Artists In-House” Space
We have invited our artists to come and work in a designated creation space. Artists will be present throughout the weekend to sit in the Gallery and create. This gives attendees and other artists an opportunity to watch the creative process, ask questions, or just appreciate the craft a little bit more.
Lacking the space for a full row of tables to form an Artist’s Alley, we’ve opened up a space in the Gallery where artists who are showing this year can sign up for blocks of time in which they can sell prints of some of their original works. Art enthusiasts who may not have the budget for originals can come and consider taking home some prints instead! A schedule of who will be available for print sales and when will be made available when the Gallery opens, and will be updated in the Gallery throughout the weekend if changes or additions occur.
Gallery Meet and Greet
Con-Volution 2015’s Gallery of Artists who are also attending the convention welcome you to join them in the Gallery at 10 AM on Saturday morning, for a one hour Meet and Greet session, where the attendees are encouraged to come and meet the artists behind the works on display. During this Meet & Greet, we will be drawing names to win ACEO art card originals from our Artists- so make sure to come by, and see if you go home with a special prize!
ACEO Art Card Drawing
An ACEO Art card is a simple, small piece of card stock, 3.5” tall by 2.5” wide. We’ve requested the Artists showing in the Gallery to provide us with at least one ACEO Art card, even if their typical medium isn’t 2D. It can be as simple as a pencil sketch, or an inked drawing, or a fully colored illustration- Artist’s choice! During the Artists Meet & Greet on Saturday, starting at 10:15 AM, we will take the names of anyone who attends the Meet & Greet, and draw winners. Said winners must be present at the time of the drawing, and there will be multiple drawings done throughout the hour- so even if you can’t be there right at the beginning, make sure to stop by during the event, and put your name in the drawing!
2015 artist submissions are closed. If you would like to be considered for the waitlist, please contact the Gallery Manager at gallery (at) con-volution.com.
