We love artists at Multiverse, and there are several ways for artists to get involved. Submit your art to the Multiverse Art Expo, or create art for official Multiverse publications!
ART SHOW & AUCTION
Here is some basic information on the Multiverse Art Expo:
Display Space: There will be hanging space on grid-wall panels, as well as table space for pieces that do not hang very well. Floor space may also be made available by special request. Display space is available on a first-come, first-served basis. Art does not have to be for sale to be displayed, but it is encouraged.
Auction Format: The Art Show silent auction runs from the opening of Art Show on the Friday of the convention to Saturday Evening. Bidding closes when the Art Expo closes on Saturday night, with the highest bid on each piece at closing time winning. Artists will set a starting bid for each piece, and bids lower than the starting bid will be considered invalid.
Quick Sale: On Friday and Saturday, members may buy pieces with no bids on them at the Quick Sale price. This is a Buy-It-Now that short circuits the bidding process and sells the item at that point.
Sunday Sale: Any pieces that are not sold prior to Sunday can optionally be available for Sunday sale at a fixed (typically reduced) price.
Print Shop: Any type of artwork may be sold in the Multiverse Art Expo Print Shop. Print Shop space is available on a first-come, first-served basis. You will need to provide your own display rack if you wish to have one.
Mail-In: We do accept artwork mailed in from artists who are unable to bring it to us in person, such as artists from out of state.
Submissions for the 2019 Multiverse Art Expo will open soon. Please contact us if you have any questions or comments.
SUBMIT TO PUBLICATIONS
We are always happy to receive artwork submissions for our official Multiverse publications! To be considered for print:
Artwork should be family friendly – “PG” content only, no “R” rated or adult content.
Artwork should be recognizably related to Multiverse convention in some way.
We prefer artwork that does something clever in its presentation beyond simply being portraiture, or being of the “clip art” variety featuring spaceships and dragons.
Multiverse does NOT pay for artwork, but if we use your art we will credit you as the artist appropriately. DO NOT send original artwork to Multiverse. Contact Multiverse about sending a scan or digital art file.
