Art Show & Print Shop—Our Art Show includes a special exhibit of the works of our Official Artist Stephan Martiniere, plus about 90 panels and a dozen tables full of original SF and Fantasy artwork, most of which is available for sale by written bid at the con. For the third time at Boskone, we will allow previously-purchased art to be entered for resale. Also check out our Print Shop for many great items for immediate sale. The Art Show will be located on the lower level in the Galleria. For more details, please see our Art Show web page.

New Resale Scheme for the Art Show
We’re excited to announce a new method of resale in the Art Show. There will be only a minor upfront cost ($1 per piece), and we will charge a 10% commission on sales (to be capped at $100 per piece). So, if your piece fails to sell, it will only cost you $1!

Hucksters' Room—The Hucksters' Room (aka the Dealers' Room) will feature a wide variety of science fiction, fantasy, and genre books, jewelry, clothing, and all manner of other fun stuff. The Hucksters' Room will be on the lower level in the Galleria, sharing space with the Art Show and Con Suire.

Con Suite—Everyone is welcome to stop by for soda and munchies, to meet other fans (you might want to sign up for Birds of a Feather meetings with them!), or just to relax for awhile. Children may not be left unattended.

Gaming Room—This year's Game Room will feature lots of options for players of Magic: The Gathering, specialized board games, and people who want to play everything from checkers to Dungeons and Dragons.
