K/S has always been justly famous for its fabulous art. We are certainly a very creative bunch! We welcome all forms of Trek related art and crafts for our art display.
THE ART SHOW
Open to attending & supporting members.
If you would like to exhibit a piece of art, or display your proficiency in K/S crafting, please bring the item(s) with you. Or, if you are a supporting member or if the pieces are too big to bring, you can send them to Lane End to arrive A FEW DAYS BEFORE THE con (no earlier, please!)
Supporting members submitting art for the show and/or auction who want it returned must either send it via an attending member (who can bring it back afterwards) or provide return postage, in advance.
We are happy to display art from the original artist, as well as resale art in good condition. (N.B. Pieces must have the owners name and address on them somewhere!)
We have once again recruited ever fabulous T’racionn to organise the art show and all the art competitions (never say we can't recognise true talent when we see it!) and so we encourage you all to start thinking about your arty or crafty projects.
There are 3 contests, to cover pretty much every media that you prefer to use.
Here are the details of the KiSmet Art competitions. Any questions, please contact T'racionn: tracionn.tumblr.com/ask
Art Competition 1: This one is for everyone, attendees and non-attendees alike. Prompts: ‘What Feels Right’ and/or ‘Golden/Silver’. Art allowed: everything & anything: Crafts, creations, cosplay pictures, dolls, doll pictures, anything crafted, manips, traditional, digital art - you create it, we allow it!
Art Competition 2: This one, too, is open to all, attendees and non-attendees alike. Prompts: ‘Emotional Security’ and/or ‘Shore Leave’. Art allowed: once again, everything & anything! Crafts, creations, cosplay pictures, dolls, doll pictures, anything crafted, manips, traditional, digital art - you create it, we allow it.
Art Competition 3: This one is for our lovely attendees only. Prompts: ‘At His Side’ and/or ‘stars/home’. Art allowed: everything & anything! Crafts, creations, cosplay pictures, dolls, doll pictures, anything crafted, manips, traditional, digital art - you create it, we allow it.
The prompts can be interpreted as strictly or as loosely as you like! We won't be picky: we just want to see some lovely K/S and Trek artwork!
The maximum amount of pieces, per artist for each competition, is 3.
Every artist will have the option to sell or auction their work at the Con.
Non-attending artists, please send their entries to T’racionn (contact: tracionn [at] web [dot] de) or to Anne/Chrissy. Talk to us about your work first, if you need to. If you are not attending and you want your artwork returned, please arrange for an attending member to bring it back with them, or supply return postage in advance.
Again, we do have the option of you sending work directly to Lane End. This can be useful even if you are attending. After all, your works may be more Monet’s Waterlilies (huge) than Hilliard’s Queen Elizabeth (miniature)! If you want to do this, please let Anne & Chrissy know in advance on the con email.
N.B. Anyone inscribing naked pictures of Spock onto grains of rice will be expected to provide a microscope for viewing purposes.
Another alternative for entering your pictures: just send the file to T'racionn who will print them. This will cost you 3 EUROs per print, but as they can be sold at the con, you might get more back (as Cyrano Jones might say!). Art size for printing should be around 20cmx30cm, and the better the resolution, the better the print out.
The winner and the runner up of each competition will both receive a little prize, and much applause and honour, of course. Should a non-attendee win, we will send them their prize (so please make sure you tell us your home address!)
The winners will be determined by all convention attendees voting for the displayed artworks.
Again, any questions about the art contests, please contact T'racionn: tracionn.tumblr.com/ask or tracionn [at] web [dot] de
