SheVaCon 2010 Art Report
Stormtroopers and Klingons descended en masse upon Roanoke last weekend to attend the 18th annual celebration of all that is unreal in southwest Virginia, namely SheVaCon.
The show’s Artist guest of honor was Stephen Hickman, with additional guest artists Seth Bennet, Amanda L. Carruba, Kristy Gilbert, our own Veronica V. Jones, Beck Kramer, Malak, Ron Miller, Chris Range, and Daniel Trout.
Our own Johnathan Darkly had been told there was no room for his “digital” artwork in the gallery, so we were surprised to see more than a few empty panels at the show. We were told scheduled artists didn’t show up, but Jon’s still not speaking to us.
Veronica’s prints were featured prominently in the art show, as well as a winged pig sculpture. She also demonstrated her digital art prowess in one early panel, and shared her freelancing experiences and portfolio tips in two others.
