Thank you, everyone, for your interest in my topic and effort to bring back the Art Gallery to FanimeCon. Unfortunately, FanimeCon does not have interest in continuing the Art Gallery as we've known and loved it. The attempts on my end to create a place for the art show artists during FanimeCon has a scheduling conflict during that time. FanimeCon was my first art show, but it won't be my last. Thank you for the memories, Fanime! <3

RIP FanimeCon Art Gallery

I apologize for taking so long for another update! I just didn't have anything positive to update.

Independently, another artist and I are going to try to set up a home for local artists that coincides and compliments the timing of FanimeCon. I had originally sent this idea on to Fanime, but I have not heard a response in more than a month. We got to thinking that maybe we should take that as a sign that if we want to get something done, we should just do it ourselves. So with that motivation in mind, please wish us luck! Feel free to find and message me at www.facebook.com/MoonbugsMakes or email andrea@moonbugwings.com if you'd like any more details or have suggestions. :)

Thanks, everyone! If anything changes I will continue to pop in on here to update.

Hi, Artists (and interested attendees!),

I had what I feel was a pretty good meeting with Fanime and their Chair(s) this past Saturday. I have been a tad more busy with work due to the holidays, so I apologize for the delay.

I had much more positive information given in regards to the Fanime Art Gallery. Things will be different. For now, the Art Gallery we have loved and attended traditionally is being set aside. However, there are new avenues they are willing to explore in regards to the Art Gallery. I am composing several propositions on how to utilize the space and event "Art Gallery" that I hope will please and excite Fanime, attendees, and artists.

Please be patient and open to changes. It will not be the same, but I think it will still be exciting.

Thank you, artists. I'm headed to another Fanime Staff meeting this weekend. I'll let you know how it goes.  ;)

Update: Still working on this as I just received additional information. FanimeCon requires a new, better business model in order to continue the Art Gallery as artists know it. I am looking into San Jose City information to see how this may be accomplished to FanimeCon and artist's liking.

Goodness, I had no idea so much negativity had gone on in the background. I hope the current decision is not based on politics.

Sadly, as of the response I received today from the Fanime Chairs, the Fanime Art Gallery will not be returning. This cloudy, rainy day is definitely mirroring how I feel about this. Fanime was my first art show (where I met Crispin Freeman--great memory!) and from there became my favorite thing at Fanime. It is a tradition I have continued to enjoy for nearly 15 years whether I was able to be present for it or not (my art was).

I have a few more avenues to attempt, but if this is a decision based on outside reasons I'm not sure how it can be changed. I can only suggest that perhaps you send an Art Gallery love note to Fanime and see if the joy it brings fans helps them reconsider.

The Fanime Art Gallery is important. Just not important to everyone.

I made it to a Fanime Staff meeting and they are looking for an Art Gallery Head! I have thrown my name in the hat and will see what happens.  :)

Hello fellow FanimeCon attendees and artists!

I am hoping to assist the Artist Gallery in getting back up and going for FanimeCon 2017! I have the art show experience and fellow artists who have spoken up to assist in running this fun exhibit. We were unsuccessful in 2016, but with a year ahead of us I'm sure it can be done brilliantly.

Feel free to add your thoughts or to pass this information along to any Fanime "powers that be" you may know.

Thank you!

Great job, great location, great communication!

Thank you for allowing our Swap Meet registration with badge number suffice in lieu of the badge via LineCon that took place. That was a HUGE help on Thursday.

I look forward to next year!  :)

In line for reg now. If time cuts too close, will Swap Meet consider badgless entrance for registered/paid sellers?

 Thank you

I'm the same. I love going to Fanime for the Art Show. I already have my ticket and hotel though, so I am making due with the Swap Meet this year. Haven't done the Swap Meet in probably 10 years?? It used to be FREE! As did Art Show, Artist Alley, etc.... haha. Oh, the good 'ol days. The spaces went from 4x4 to 12x6 though. So, there's that.  ::)

Please keep in contact for 2017 and keep that ring going!  ;)

Thank you for your efforts in attempting to keep this tradition going.  Here's to 2017 being a proper return for the Art Show.

Thank you for your kind words. Fingers crossed for 2017!

Thank you for your continued communication in leading up to the con!

Absolutely, you've been amazing with communication! If they have a Staff of the Year, I nominate you. :)

If anybody would like to share space and split the fee let me know

Tried to PM you, but it doesn't show up in my Sent, so replying here in case it isn't working. I'm game to share and split cost on a space! Feel free to PM or email me.

Very disappointing. It has been great getting to know the artists here though!

To become staff is just a super elite "secret list" kind of thing, I've been told. I only had 4 months to try and become staff to run the Art Gallery. Let's see what can be done with 12 months.


Thank you, Zelyhon, for keeping us informed. Information is a beautiful thing! I look forward to the Swap Meet.

If you are able to nudge any Fanime Powers That Be to the Art Gallery forum topic, us artists would appreciate it!  :D

I wish I could answer more. If they let us run the Gallery, I will do everything I can to ensure sales. I'll even suggest Cash Only if they do not have a credit card method available to the Gallery. If they allow a non-Fanime system to use their POS I do have my own tablets and of course phone to do so.

Edge of my seat here!  :-[

Someone is replying to me via the Fanime Facebook! They are trying to get confirmation on whether the Art Gallery is taking place this year or not. I have reassured them that even given the short time, I can have things set within a day and start setup on Thursday and mentioned having a Fanime-experienced person (That's you, Xyterra) willing to help. Fingers crossed!

It would be great if Fanime read this forum topic as well! For Fans, By Fans is what we're trying to do!  8)

The Sailormoon as Blade! Yes, I have seen your work there many times!!  ;D Love your new Tinkerbell up there as well--she's super cute! I love her lil toesies.

I am hoping one of the forwarded emails has a positive reply on Monday. I spoke to a friend in Artist Alley last night who knows a staff member and she is going to try that route for us as well.
