Arnie and Cathy Fenner are once again hosts to one of the fiinest gatherings of professionals in the genre of science fiction and fantasy art. Art directors from various publishing houses, owners representing galleries, and numerous art collectors will walk the floor, mingle with exhibiting artists and attendees alike to make this an event well worth participating within. All forms of professionals will share their thoughts through lectures, presentations, and live demonstrations.
This is not an event staged around museum works or academics, but rather a place where comrades slogging their way through the extremely competitive freelance marketplace share their stories, advice, and work with a like and sympathetic audience. This is a place to nurture the artistic soul and charge the inspirational batteries of creativity and a time to pick the brains of talent, mature and fledgling, for they all had information relevant to expand their artistic awareness.
With dozens of panel presentations, hundreds of booths, and thousands of pieces of art, you are guaranteed to be inspired from the moment you step through the door. The Fenners (as well as their host of volunteers) has put on a top rate professional convention the past three years, and I am sure this will follow suit.
Be sure to attend the Spectrum 21 awards Saturday evening to celebrate the best of what our field creates.
