Loncon 3's art-related activities include original artwork and prints on display and for sale in the Art Show, many of which will go to the art auction on Sunday, a varied Art Programme throughout the convention, and the presentation of the prestigious Chesley Awards, recognising individual artistic works and achievements in science fiction and fantasy.
Continuing with the tradition started by Renovation (2011) and Chicon 7 (2012), Loncon 3 will be producing a printed Artist Showcase. This limited edition, 96 page, full colour print publication features all of the artists appearing in the Art Show.

The following artists are confirmed for the Loncon 3 Art Show. You can access our online gallery including biographies and sample artworks from each artist by clicking on the links below.
All artworks shown in this gallery are copyright of the respective artists, all rights reserved.
The Art Show will also feature sales from the estate collections of author Harry Harrison and well known British fans Chris Cooper and Dave Cox. All proceeds from the Dave Cox sale will be donated to the Transatlantic Fan Fund (TAFF) at Dave's request.
Entering the Art Show
The Art Show is sold out as of May 20, 2014. We have now frozen our final layout for the show, so unfortunately we are no longer able to consider applications or maintain a wait list.
Registration information has been left online here for information only. (For confirmed artists, note that this includes key information on check-in, check-out, and required paperwork).
Loncon 3 will have docent tours. Docents are well-informed and engaging guides who are passionate about sharing their knowlege. (We borrow the term 'docent' from the world of museums, where volunteer docents show visitors around the galleries.)
The Association of Science Fiction and Fantasy Artists (ASFA) annually gives out the Chesley Awards. These Awards were established in 1985 as ASFA's peer awards to recognise individual works and achievements not otherwise acknowledged by the Hugo Awards. The Chesleys were initially called the ASFA Awards, but were later renamed to honour famed astronomical artist Chesley Bonestell after his death in 1986. The awards are usually presented at the World Science Fiction Convention.
We have provided an additional page with more information on the Chesley Awards including a video of the 2011 Chesley Award Ceremony which took place at Renovation, the 2011 Worldcon.
