Transcript HOW TO OBTAIIV BEAUTIFUL ARTWORKS AM) SUPPORT THE ARTISTS Being Notes from the Director of the Art Show Here you are at Westercon 36, aka Westerchron. You will definitely take home lots of memories. Many of you will also take home some beautiful art dealing with science fiction, fantasy, or fen. Not to mention a few hangovers. I think you will all enjoy this Art Show. We have many very fine artists displaying both 2D and 3D work. When you cruise through the show, take this program book with you. It has a map of the Art Show, telling what artists are where. Whenever you write a bid, you can note it on the map, making it much easier for you to recall (later) whose work you have bid on. We are using a new kind of direct-sale mechanism this year. Under the "traditional" method, the artist set a fixed price for direct (non-bidding) sale, and it was invalid after the first bid was written. This year, we are using a multiplier to preserve the direct-sale option through the first couple of bids. It works like this: Whatever the current written bid is, multiply it by the direct-sale factor; the result is the current direct-sale price. If no bid is written yet, use the specified minimum bid. For example, let's say a piece has a minimum bid of $50 and a multiplier of 3. At the beginning, the direct-sale price is $150 (3 times $50). Now, if someone writes a bid of $80, the direct-sale price becomes $240 (3 times $80). At this point, anyone can plunk down $240 and buy the piece outright. There are limits to this, however. If the piece gets three written bids, direct sale is now longer allowed for that piece; this is to discourage people from just paying the direct-sale price to keep the piece from going to the voice auction. Also, for a similar reason, no direct sales will be allowed on Sunday (too close to the auction). Speaking of voice auctions: We are planning to have two auctions, one Sunday afternoon and the other Monday (yawn) morning. (I apologize for the early starting time—10 am—of Monday's auction, but we must make allowances for those who have early planes to catch, etc.) Our auctioneers are John Trimble, Bruce Pelz, and Wombat. Each prospective bidder is asked to fill out a 3x5 card in advance, so we can have the check-identification information already when the checkout time happens on Monday. Successful voice bidders should be prepared to pay for their purchases immediately after the auction. This will expedite the pick-up procedure Monday, because Sunday buyers will merely have to show their receipts then, having already gone through the check-writing phase. Purchased art can be picked up after 10 am Monday. Only for honest emergencies can art be picked up before then—after all, this is a show, not just a market. —Renfield Art Show Director IT'S ABOUT TIME 45
