ILLUXCON 4 will be taking place this week in Altoona, PA. For those of you not familiar with this event, Illuxcon is the premiere arts gathering that focuses on the art of the genres of Science Fiction, Horror, Fantasy and related disciplines. This is a chance to meet fellow artists, collectors, art students and art directors from around the world. There is a student program track, portfolio reviews and a number of demonstrations. Attendance / and memberships are limited. I would suggest checking the Illuxcon website for the availability of remaining memberships.
A number of Muddycolors members will be attending and exhibiting their work, including: Dan Dos Santos, Jesper Ejsing, Eric Fortune, Justin Gerard, Donato Giancola, Petar Meseldzija and John Jude Palencar.
From the website:
“Illuxcon is dedicated to the validation of the original painting as more than a means to an end and, through that validation, the recognition that the art of the fantastic deserves to be brought out from the shadow of literature and publication, its creators permitted to stand beside their peers in other artistic schools, and their works accepted to hang side by side with the best of all the past generations of artists. Illuxcon is also dedicated to the continuing development of the field, inspiring students and emerging artists to look at the world through the prism of the fantastic and encouraging the professional and personal interaction necessary to allow the masters of the field to share their experience, knowledge, drive and dedication with all those who would follow in their footsteps.”
Hope to see you there!
