Art Show

Oklahoma’s Largest Fantasy and Science Fiction Art Gallery

The Soonercon Art Show is one of the largest fantasy- and sci-fi-themed art exhibits in the Southwest.

Our gallery is open throughout the convention and features pieces from some of America’s most talented science fiction and fantasy artists. You’ll be able to view and purchase paintings, sculptures, digital manipulations, jewelry, prints, pottery, and much more.

In the past, we’ve featured artwork from Guests of Honor Julie Dillon, John Picacio, Peri Charlifu, Nene Thomas, Lubov, Elizabeth Leggett, and many more esteemed and award-winning artists.

Silent Auction, Live Auction, and Artist Reception

All art displayed in the Art Show is available for purchase in our silent auction with some artwork having a “buy it now” price. Pieces that receive the minimum number of bids go to a live auction on Saturday evening. Winning bidders may pick up auction items on Sunday.

The Friday night Art Reception gives convention attendees the opportunity to meet the artists and browse their work in a gallery setting.

    What’s the difference between Artist Alley, the Art Show, and Club tables?

    The Art Show (what this page is all about) is an art gallery. Artists display their artwork and all sales transactions are handled by Soonercon staff and volunteers. The Artists get to enjoy their weekend and pick up any unsold artwork on Sunday. There is also a Mail In option for Artists who are not able to attend Soonercon themselves. Additionally, pieces that get enough bids in the Silent Auction by Saturday afternoon go to the Live Art Auction on Saturday evening conducted by Soonercon staff. Artists who have a Membership to Soonercon will have the opportunity to meet potential buyers at the Art Reception on Friday evening.

    The Artist Alley consists of approximately 60 tables lining the hallways of the main conference space. Artist Alley tables are ideal for networking, taking commissions, and selling prints. Space in Artist Alley is intended for individual artists and writers. Two memberships are included with table purchase. Although the Artist Alley closes on Friday evening and Saturday evening, it is located in the main hallways and accessible during the full convention hours. Artists are encouraged to tarp their tables and secure their art during evening hours. Check out the Soonercon Artist Alley page for more info.

    Club tables are intended for clubs, organizations, and conventions – not individuals. Club space is located in the Exhibitor Hall. Sales and fundraisers at Club tables are prohibited without prior written permission from our club coordinator. Check out the Clubs page for more info.
