Art Show

The ConFuzzled Art Show offers a place for attendees to bring along and sell their art – be it drawn, digital, photographic or sculpted, you can sell your work both for charity and for profit!

Visiting the Art Show

The Art Show is located in the Warwick, just inside the Monarch Suite entrance, opposite the Dealers’ There is ample space to show off the fantastic creations submitted by our attendees. Check the con schedule to see when the Art Show will be open to bidding.

As part of the general ConFuzzled attendee Terms and Conditions, if you bid on an item in the art show, you abide by the Art Show Bidding Rules.

Selling in the Art Show

If you’d like to sell an item in the ConFuzzled Art Show, pre-registering your items ahead of the con is highly recommended. This speeds up the process during the Art Submission event, and as space is filled on a first come, first served basis, it offers the best chance of getting a space. Note while submissions are accepted on the day of the con, these are subject to space being available, so please pre-register as much as you can. Pre-registration closes just over a week before the con.

Pre-Registration will open in early 2020! Watch for announcements here and on the ConFuzzled Twitter account and Telegram channel.

At the con, bring your items to the Art Show during the Art Submission event (see schedule). No items will be accepted after this event.

We would like to discourage reselling merchandise and selling unlimited prints. Such items are better suited for the Dealers’ Den, whereas attendees expect to find original works on display in the Art Show.

To have your items displayed in the Art Show, you must agree to the following Terms and Conditions and list of Prohibited Items. You will be asked to sign this agreement at the con when you submit your items.

Live Auction

If an art piece proves particularly popular it will be marked to go to the Live Auction, so check often on the pieces you have bid on. The Live Auction will take place on the Second Stage (check the con schedule for timings), where you’ll have the chance to pick up some fantastic artwork and other items, including special charity items that are only available in the Live Auction.

Art Pickup & Payment

If you’ve won an item in the Art Show or Live Auction, you must head to the Art Pickup event to pay for and collect your winnings (see schedule). The Art Pickup event will take place in the Dealers’ Den.

If you are unable to attend or want to send another person on your behalf, please contact the Auction Staff by email, or talk to us at the convention. We can’t hand over your art another attendee unless you have informed us in advance. The simplest way to let us know is to email a picture of both your conbadge together with the conbadge of the attendee you’d like to pick up your items on your behalf. Make sure you email us from the same email address you used to register for ConFuzzled.

Payment Information

Art Pickup payment can be made by Cash or Card – however as cash is faster to process, cash payments are preferred wherever possible

Artist Payout

If you have placed an item in the Art Show, you must collect your payment for sold art pieces during the Artist Payout event, and you must collect any unsold art during the Unsold Art Pickup event (see schedule). Both these events will take place in the Dealers’ Den.

Please note that we will not pay out amounts over £250 in cash; you will be paid by bank transfer instead – this is due to most larger purchases being made by card. However, as long as you attend the Artist Payout event, we will pay all bank transfer fees.

You must attend the Artist Payout event!

  • No shows add administrative overhead to our art show and finance teams. As a result, this will incur a £5 admin fee which will be donated to the charity
  • We will also not pay any bank transfer fees that may be incurred for no shows
  • If you leave art items behind, we will contact you and you will have the option of either paying all delivery costs to have them shipped back to you, or to donate the items to ConFuzzled
