Check out the Artists who will be in the Art Show!

See the beauty of an interplanetary sunset or the twinkle in a dragon’s eye at the Detcon1 Art Show. We are displaying an amazing variety of unique and limited edition artworks depicting the science, science fiction and fantasy genres. With submissions from a large variety of artists, pieces include paintings, sculptures, jewelry, blown glass, castings and much more. Most artwork is available for purchase through a written silent bid system. Items receiving ten bids will be sold via live auction on Saturday at 7:00 PM. Pick Up of purchased art including Quick Sales is Sunday from 10-3.

We also have many prints for sale through our artists’ Print Shop. Come see what imagination and talent can create.

Artists interested in participating in the show can find more information and the necessary forms here:

Please contact Art Show Director Tricia Noble at with any questions.

If you would like an opportunity to sell your art directly to individuals, or to do custom drawings on the fly, we are now accepting applications for limited-time slots in the Artists/Authors Alley. The Alley is a supplement to the Art Show, not a replacement – time slots and availability are limited. But you may do both!
