1st 2017 IX COMMISSION #1 - BROM!! And reminder - SHOWCASE TABLES ON SALE TOMORROW @ 8pm!

The first of the 2017 IX commissions has been completed! This is THE NIGHT MARE, a 54" x 46" oil on linen by the incomparable Brom. Be sure to see this stunning painting in person, along with the artist himself, at this year's 10th anniversary IX show October 18-22 in Reading, PA! (Tickets will go on sale next month!)

The IX commissions are given out each year to several artists to produce major personal works which are then used to promote IX, imaginative realism, and the artists themselves. These commissions are a key part of the IX mission—encouraging the creation of new, major traditional media works at a scale and complexity unlimited by standard deadlines or content restrictions.

SHOWCASE TABLES

Just a reminder that the Showcase tables for the 2017 IX show will go on sale at 8 pm EST TOMORROW, Tuesday, January 17th!

Tables will be on sale at this link: http://www.infectedbyart.com/ix10showcase/

Showcase tables are $265 and include a 5-day pass to the show. The Showcase will take place from 8 pm until midnight on Friday, October 20th and Saturday, October 21st, 2017.
