Furry Weekend Atlanta is proud to be hosting another year of our art show, showing some of the finest works in the furry fandom. The show features a separate area for mature artwork that is restricted to minors. Artwork is sold by written bid, with pieces receiving five or more bids automatically going to voice auction. The auction will take place on the Sunday of the convention, with mature pieces being auctioned first, and general pieces going second after a brief intermission allowing the doors to be opened to all members instead of just adults.
We have two separate areas, one for General Audiences and one for Mature Audiences. The deadline for submissions to the Furry Weekend Atlanta 2013 Art Show will be March 15th, 2013.
This year, Furry Weekend Atlanta will be limiting the number of art show slots available to mail-in artists. If you will not be attending Furry Weekend Atlanta but would like to mail in artwork, please contact Furry Weekend Atlanta FIRST, before registering. Approval for acceptance of mailed artwork must be requested no later than February 14th, 2013. Any pieces being mailed to us must be received by March 8th, 2013. All mail-in artwork must include a prepaid return shipping label for unsold artwork via either United States Postal Service (USPS) or United Parcel Service (UPS). This must include any insurance you wish to purchase for the return shipment of any unsold artwork. Failure to include a prepaid return shipping label will incur a $20.00 service charge in addition to the cost of return shipping. Furry Weekend Atlanta will not be responsible for lost or damaged shipments of return artwork. This is for your protection – it insures that your artwork is cared for in the way you choose.
Panel costs are as follows:
|Half Panel (4′ x 2′), General Section||$5.00|
|Full Panel (4′ x 4′), General Section||$10.00|

Furry Weekend Atlanta will take a 10% commission from the sale of your piece as its fee for acting as sales agent. The artist will also have the option of retaining profits from the sale, donating the profits to charity, or donating the profits to Furry Weekend Atlanta (a 501(c)3 organization).
Payments are issued within 90 days of the end of the convention. We try to do it sooner, but processing holdups can sometimes delay that.
Bidding on artwork at Furry Weekend Atlanta is easy! When you find a piece you like, simply write your badge number, initials, and your bid in the space provided on the bid sheet next to each piece. Check back throughout the day as you may have been outbid! If a piece receives five (5) or more bids, it will automatically go to voice auction on Sunday.
You can pick up any pieces you have won on Sunday following the auction. Note, bidding on a piece of art is a binding agreement and failure to pay/pick up art at the convention will result in an additional charge as well as a mailing fee.
