Art @ Renovation - Artist Alley

Renovation will be operating an Artist Alley within the Dealers' Room area as another opportunity for artists to interact with collectors and fans.

The Artist Alley is complementary to the main Art Show where we will sell original artworks and prints on your behalf in return for hanging fees and commission.

Artists taking Dealers' Room space on either a permanent or shared basis (see below for details of each option) will be grouped together in Artist Alley for maximum impact. The centerpiece of Artist Alley will be a series of tables hosted by Artist Guest of Honor Boris Vallejo and his family: Julie Bell, David Palumbo, Anthony Palumbo and Winona Nelson. We encourage fans to drop by and meet Boris and the other artists in Artist Alley during the convention.

Artist Alley Schedule

The current schedule for Artist Alley is as follows. (This excludes Boris Vallejo and family, who will be at their tables regularly throughout the convention but do not have a specific table schedule).

Permanent Tables

Artists wishing to have a permanent presence in the Dealers' Room can rent tables on the standard dealer basis of $250 per table for the duration of the convention. This can be in addition to, or as an alternative to, exhibiting in the Art Show. See the Dealers' Room page for full details on how to apply for tables.

Shared Tables

Renovation is pleased to offer an innovative shared table option for Artists who are exhibiting in the Art Show. This option enables artists to book up to two 2-hour slots at a table during the convention, free of charge. These slots can be used for anything - meeting fans, doing a small demonstration, selling artwork, etc - although to meet Nevada requirements you will need to pay sales tax on anything that you sell during the session. Slots pre-booked before the convention will be included in our printed pocket program, so members know when each artist is appearing.

This opportunity goes alongside autographing sessions and kaffeeklatches as another way for artists and fans to meet, talk and interact.

The shared tables will operate as follows:

  • Two standard tables (each table is 8 feet by 2 1/2 feet) will be available.

  • Two-hour slots will be available at each table throughout the day (while the Dealers' Room is open) on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

  • Each artist can request up to two slots. We will allocate these as part of our program scheduling activity to avoid clashes with the rest of your programmed items.

  • Two artists can request that they be scheduled together (one table each) for a single slot. We will do our best to accommodate such requests.

  • As stated above, artists can use the table how they want during their slot. Our only request is that they arrive promptly at the beginning of the slot, stay for at least one hour of the allocated two-hour period, and leave at least 10 minutes before the end of the period to make room for the next occupant.

  • You will need to tell us in advance if you intend to make any sales during your slot. If you do, you will be given a tally sheet on which you will need to record details of the items sold. You will need to complete this at the end of the slot, and then hand it in to us. You will then need to make payment to us by 6 p.m. on Saturday for the relevant amount of Sales Tax. (Under Nevada law, the convention needs to collect the Sales Tax for all sellers and make payment on their behalf). Payments will be accepted by check at the Dealers' Room control desk.

If you would like to apply for a shared table, please email us directly at art@renovationsf.org letting us know how many slots you would like and whether you would like to be jointly scheduled with another artist. Please email us as soon as possible (end of June at latest) so we can list your appearance in the Pocket Program. (We will be happy to accept requests after this date, but cannot guarantee later bookings will be in the publication).
