Boskone 53, February 19-21, 2016, held at Boston’s Westin Waterfront Hotel, is the longest running science fiction convention in New England. Featured guests are Guest of Honor, author Garth Nix, Official Artist, Richard Anderston, Special Guests Arnie and Cathy Fenner, and NESFA Press Guest Bob Eggleton.
“Imaginative Art from the Pages of Spectrum“, this year’s Boskone Special art Exhibit, showcases work that has appeared in the first twenty volumes of the acclaimed, Hugo winning, Spectrum series of art books. Edited by Boskone Special Guests, Cathy and Arnie Fenner, the Spectrum series has become known as a Who’s Who of imaginative illustrators.
Our exhibit features 70 pieces that have appeared in Spectrum from the beginning through the last issue the Fenners edited. The exhibit is sourced from both artists and collectors, who have enthusiastically contributed both paintings and 3D pieces.
Works will be on display from more than 35 artists, including Julie Bell, Brom, Jim Burns, Thomas Canty, Vincent Di Fate, Dan Dos Santos, Eric Fortune, Randy Gallegos, John Harris, Nicholas Jainschigg, Jeff Jones, Thomas Kuebler, Jody Lee, Greg Manchess, Petar Meseldzija, John Jude Palencar, David Palumbo, Mark Poole, Boris Vallejo, Vincent Villafranca, Ron Walotsky, Michael Whelan and Mark Zug.
In addition, we expect a number of artists represented in the exhibit to be in attendance at Boskone, including Rick Berry, Kristina Carroll, Scott Grimando, Stephen Hickman, Ingrid Kallick, Tom Kidd, Gary Lippincott, Omar Rayyan, Ruth Sanderson, David Seeley, and of course Boskone Official Artist Richard Anderson and NESFA Press Guest Bob Eggleton,.
Don’t miss this opportunity to appreciate a fabulous selection of art that has appeared in the most prestigious series of art books in the field. Attend a docent tour, talk to the artists and our guests, or simply wallow in the sense of wonder that this art engenders.
