Artistacon Conference 2019 will be held on March 23-24 at the Moore College of Art & Design. Artistacon is a unique conference that brings emerging artists together with seasoned professionals. The event was founded and launched by Greek-American Chris Kotsakis. Created for the general public, it has terrific opportunities for Hellenes to explore as well.
The weekend-long conference will feature Greek artists and published Greek works. Jon Sideriadis an active freelance illustrator, author, and Art Director of the Spartan Museum of Art, will be present. His specialty is mythological art and storytelling; he will be hosting one of the many seminars. Exhibitor Chris Jaymes will feature his book “Sons of Chaos,” an illustrated fictional novel about The Greek War for Independence and based around the life of Marcos Botsaros. It’s scheduled to come out in July of 2019.
There will be workshops, educational symposia, portfolio reviews, demos and displays from featured artists, illustrators, and writers. There’s something for everyone, and there’s nothing like this anywhere in the country.
Anyone who wishes to attend Artistacon can buy a two-day pass (which also includes the Drink & Draw event on March 22) for $79, an all-inclusive two-day student pass (for students and educators) for $49 or a one-day pass for $45. Tickets for this event can be purchased through artistacon.net prior to the event, and an adult must accompany any attendee under the age of 16.
