Boskone is known for its long history of supporting excellence in science fiction and fantasy art and offers several opportunities to view and enjoy artwork within the Art Show. This year’s Art Show opens Friday night with Boskone’s Meet the Guests Opening Ceremony and Reception in the Galleria. Fans and art lovers can tour the show on their own, participant in a guided tour, and purchase original art on display in the show or in our print shop area to take home a bit of Boskone magic.

Official Artist: Julie Dillon
Hi! My name is Julie Dillon, and I’m a freelance artist living in the Pacific Northwest. I’ve been drawing most of my life, but I officially kicked off my professional career in 2006 and have been working steadily since then to keep learning, growing, and challenging myself artistically. I love finding the magic in the world around me, and try to use bold color and fantastical narratives to express that. In my free time, I enjoy hiking and exploring nature, making pottery, and volunteering at a local equine rescue.
I received my BFA in Fine Arts from Sacramento State University in 2005, with continued education at the Academy of Arts University in San Francisco and Watts Atelier.

Art Show & Tours
Boskone features the most impressive speculative art show in New England. This year’s Art Show will showcase original works by our Official Artist as well as dozens of artists from New England and beyond. The show will have 100 panels, plus about a dozen tables for 3-D work. For an up-to-date listing of confirmed artists, please visit Boskone’s Artists/Art Resellers page.
For those interested in taking a piece of original art home, the Art Show hosts a silent auction which runs through throughout the weekend, closing at noon on Sunday. Winning bids and art show sales occur from 1-3 pm on Sunday.
The Art Show also includes a Print Shop, with hundreds of reproductions available for immediate sale, and a resale area where anyone may enter previously-purchased items that they wish to sell.
