I am thrilled to pass along the news about a fantastic artist focused event, Spectrum Fantastic Art Live! This show is organized by Arnie and Cathy Fenner, the same two individuals who bring you the highly popular Spectrum annual. It will run May 18-20, 2012 in Kansas City, MO.
A partial description regarding the show from their website reads:
“We envision Spectrum Fantastic Art Live! as a fantasy-focused art fair, one in which creators will be able to sell originals and prints while promoting their work to patrons, collectors, and potential clients. Presentations, panels and displays will help broaden the public’s awareness of and appreciation for our field; art directors will be invited to meet new talent and conduct portfolio reviews; workshops and educational opportunities will be offered; and there will be the chance to network, socialize, and share.”
Special guests include Brom, Mike Mignola, Iain McCaig, Phil Hale and Andrew Jones.
I have personally invited Gary Gianni, Mark Schultz and William Stout and they will appear at the Flesk Publications booth each day.
According to a recent post on the Spectrum Fantastic Art Live website the booths are going quick. If you are an artist looking to gain greater exposure and mix within a three day show with your peers I highly recommend you reserve a spot soon.
I’m really looking forward to this accessible show that focuses on the creative individuals that drive this industry I enjoy so much.
And while I am on the topic of Spectrum, here’s the recently unveiled cover for Spectrum 18 coming fall 2011. The art is by J.S. Rossbach.
