The submission window for the 2023 Art Show has now closed.
Artists will be hearing from the Art Show Director soon regarding
which pieces have been accepted.
Thank you for your interest in being a part of our event!
Paganicon has its very own juried art show, the Third Offering Gallery.
Artists can submit art of any type using the web form below. We will accept submissions through January 1st, 2023.
Art of any subject will be considered, but we are especially interested in art that showcases our annual theme.
The Third Offering Gallery can be found in conference rooms B & C on the first floor of the Crowne Plaza, to the left of the vendor room.
Art pieces that are entered into the art show can be available for sale or not, artists’ choice. Any original art that is sold must stay in the gallery until it closes and can be picked up Sunday afternoon. In addition, artists have the option of providing prints for sale in our Print Shop. Artists who wish to participate in the Print Shop must provide a comprehensive list of what prints they will bring one month in advance so that Paganicon Print Shop sales slips can be provided to put on the prints. All art that is sold through Paganicon is done so at a 25% commission (the artist will receive 75% of the sale).
Alternatively, there are a limited number of Art Sales Tables available adjacent to the art show for artists that wish to sell their own product. These spaces are 5′ wide x 4′ deep (a 5′ table is provided if requested) and must be staffed by the artist, and all sales must be handled by the artist or a representative. Artists must fill out a MN ST19 form. There will be someone in the gallery area at all times when the art show is open, however, Twin Cities Pagan Pride is not responsible for any loss of sales or product if you leave your merchandise unattended at a sales table. You may request up to two spaces for $50 each.
If you are accepted into the Third Offering Gallery, you must be able to hand-deliver the art piece (or have someone do it for you) between 1pm and 3pm on Friday, March 17th and pick it up again between 3pm and 5pm on Sunday, March 19th. As a temporary art installation, we do not have the infrastructure to receive shipments or store your art.
A small jury will evaluate all submissions in January and will select as many pieces as will reasonably fit in our space. If you are selected, you must either be registered to attend Paganicon or pay a $25 hanging fee in advance.
The Third Offering Gallery will also award prizes for:
– People’s Choice (open voting is available until Saturday afternoon)
– Guest of Honor’s Choice (separate for each GoH)
– Best Representation of Theme
– Best in Show
Awards will be announced at the Equinox Ball on Saturday night.
Volunteering is mandatory for artists exhibiting and is a condition of acceptance by the Art Show committee. You will be required to sign up for shifts staffing the Art Show during the event.
