Hours are subject to change without notice.

The Artist Alley is always a good place to find rising talents, established artist in the fandom and sometimes dealers working after hours. If you need a badge, sketch or just any other trinket for you or a friend that couldn’t make it, stop by. Because the artists are always rotating in and out of the room, you’ll never know what you’ll find there!

For artists, there are, of course, a few rules that must be followed. Full rules can be found here Artist Alley Policies, but here are the highlights:

  • Hours are 3pm-12am on Thursday, 10am-12am on Friday, 10am-12am Saturday, and 10am-12am on Sunday.
  • Each artisan will be assigned a single chair and a half-table space in which to work on projects and offer their wares for sale. Seats are First Come First Serve. Tables are a 3 x 3 space.
  • Only ONE person, the artisan, may be behind a tablespace. No sharing or occupying more than the allotted space, even if the other space is not currently filled. Each space is allotted to ONE artist.
  • Regardless of the availability of seating, if you are not an active artisan, you may not be behind the tables. This includes sitting on the floors or “hanging out.” In the event of accommodations needing to be made, please see a member of Artist Alley Staff.
  • Powered seats are $20 each and have a limited number. All rules to non-powered tables apply to the power tables.
  • Taxes are to be filled out via Georgia Form FS-32, please ask a staff member for more information. County is Fulton and tax rate is 8.9%
  • All NSFW art MUST be covered. Any “naughty” parts in the artwork must be covered in some fashion. All shown art must be PG-13. Minors will be clearly designated as such.
  • There will be NO sleeping in the Artist Alley. If you are tired, you must give up your space. Anyone caught sleeping will be woken up and asked to leave.
  • Vaping and e-cigarettes are not allowed in the Alley.
  • When you leave your space, make sure to take everything, including your trash. There will be a trash can provided in the room.
  • Please do not leave business cards / promotional materials, or otherwise when you leave your table.
  • Furry Weekend Atlanta is not responsible for connecting artisans to convention attendees, however, we will be keeping a list of current artisans posted as best we can at the Staff Table.
  • Furry Weekend Atlanta is not responsible for missing and/or stolen items out of the Artist Alley.
  • Please do not sit outside of Artist Alley waiting for a table to become free. This crowds the hall and entrance.
  • No weapons are allowed.
  • No open drinks. This includes cans and drinks with open-center dome lids. Artists using watercolors may have a small cup so they may work.
  • No meals. Snacks are allowed but meals should be eaten outside of the Artist Alley.
  • If you are selling chemicals or soaps, do not open the containers within the Alley.

For those artists looking for a place to burn the midnight oil after the Artist Alley has closed, a soft seating area will be available to continue working. When using this space, please keep the area neat and restrict yourself to using only part of a table to allow others to relax. Signage or displays are not allowed in this area. The soft seating is only available for artists to use during non-artist alley hours; anyone attempting to sell in this area while Artist Alley is open will be asked to relocate inside.

If you have any further questions or concerns, please feel free to contact the Artist Alley staff as at artistalley@furryweekend.com.
