Art Show Rules for Bidders


  • Saturday, September 1st, 12:00pm-6:00pm
  • Sunday, September 2nd, 8:30am-6:00pm
  • Closeout hours: Monday, September 3rd, 8:30am-4:00pm

Attendees are not allowed in the Art Show before opening or after closing, even if the doors are open. Artists may come in to set-up/check on their artwork.

No cameras of any sort are allowed in the Art Show, except for supervised press or staff. If you are found taking video or photos of artwork, your camera will be confiscated.


All art work will be displayed with a bid sheet listing a minimum starting bid price and a "Buy it Now" price, each determined at the artist's discretion. Art work marked NFS on the bid sheet is Not For Sale by the artist, and is for display only.

  • Buy it Now Option—If the art work does not have any bids attendees can take the "Buy it Now" Option and enter their badge number and the "Buy it Now" Price. The art work will be sold to that attendee at the "Buy it Now" price and will not be available for any more bids.
  • Place a bid—If the art work has less than 4 bids, an attendee can place a bid on it by entering their bid and badge number on the bid sheet. Any artwork ineligible for auction (less than 4 bids) and having at least one bid will be sold to the highest bidder on the bid sheet.
  • Auction—If the art work has received four or more bids, as marked on the bid sheet, it will be go up for auction. The art work will be sold to the highest bidder at the auction.

Please write legibly, and use your full name so we can contact you, if necessary.

In the event of dispute over payment, the bid sheet will act as a receipt, provided the signatures of both the artist and the customer, and the amount paid are written on it.

Art Pick Up

If the bidder does not pick up the artwork, and it ends up unclaimed by both the artist and bidder, Kumoricon will pay for shipping the artwork back to the artist. The bidder will be noted in our database as a Delinquent Bidder, and may incur the fee of shipping the artist's artwork the following year when registering for Kumoricon.

Thank you,
