Thanks for being interested in the IKKiCON Art Show! We're an auction/gallery for original artwork ranging from pen/ink to fused glass. Come browse some amazing pieces of unique art in person and experience art in a completely different way. There are subtleties and a sense of depth in original art that can not be replicated in print.

This is a budding event so we'll need your support to grow this art community.

Definitions

Originals are one of a kind, unique piece of art; done with physical media in some manner.

Limited Prints can also be called "Limited Edition". A limited print means there are a finite number of reproductions. Only a certain number will be produced; even after all are sold, no more will be made. For the art show, we ask that the print run be limited to a max of ten (10).

A color variant of a mass produced print is acceptable. It just has to be a limited number of that particular image/color scheme.

Prints must be numbered as Print Number of Total Run. Example: 1:10, 2:10, 3:10, etc.
