Artist Alley General Information

Tables will be approximately 8' x 2.5' and will be provided with a simple cheap cover.

We cannot guarantee that there will be power available at the Artist Alley tables, so any electronics that the Artists feel that they need must be battery powered.

Artists must have a Reno Business License to sell in the Artist Alley. However, if you do not have a business license, a temporary one can be provided for you by the convention.

Application submissions for the Artist Alley will open on Saturday, August 24th, 2019. All interested artists will have one week to submit their applications, along with five pictures representative of the work they intend to sell at their table, and their signed Artist Alley contract. The pictures you submit do not have to be actual pieces that you will definitely be selling at SNAFU Con, they just have to be pictures of similar products or artwork. These pictures will be used in the formulation of the table map and to identify artists as either "Print Artists" or "Craft Artists" to ensure as much diversity in the Artist Alley as possible. These pictures will not be used as a method of jurying artists, the selections will be made randomly. However, we do reserve the right to remove artist applications from the queue if the submitted artwork violates the rules of SNAFU Con's Artist Alley.

Artists must sell only their own work in the Artist Alley, no commercial merchandise (either new or used) is to be sold. No food may be sold in the Artist Alley. No copied artwork in part or in whole may be sold. This includes traced or "eyeballed" artwork, or copying trademarked logos onto jewelry, glasses, or other crafted goods. Please carefully read the Artist Alley contract for a complete list of rules.

All artist submissions have until the application window closes on September 1st, 2019 to submit a completed and signed copy of their Artist Alley contract. Anyone who submits an incomplete contract and does not send us a corrected copy by September 1st will be disqualified from the selection. We will do our best to check everyone's contract before September 1st for completion and contact any artist who's contract has issues, but it is the responsibility of the artist to ensure their contract is completely filled out and signed when it is submitted, should we be overwhelmed with submissions.

All Artist Alley selections will be made by September 8th, when we will begin emailing out acceptance notices. At that time, selected artists will have three days to pay for their table. If you are selected and you fail to pay for your table within three days, then your table will be offered to an artist on the waitlist. If two artists wish to be placed in tables next to each other, they may email the Artist Alley coordinator at [email protected] and all consideration will be made to their preferences.

There will be two chairs provided at each table. If additional chairs are needed (within reason), artists may email [email protected] with their request and we will do our best to provide more chairs.

To register for Artist Alley, visit our online registration system and sign up under the "more options" drop-down menu.


A full table is $60. This price includes one complimentary convention membership.

A temporary business license is $20.
