What is the difference between an Artist Alley table, Art Show space, and Club space?

Artist Alley tables are ideal for displaying and selling your art, networking and taking commissions. Space in Artist Alley is intended for individual artists and writers. Half tables are half of a full table that is shared between two different applicants.

The Art Show (which is separate from Artist Alley) is an art gallery where artists display and sell their 2D and 3D original and print artwork without having to babysit it. Items in the Art Show are available for viewing, silent bidding and quick sale throughout the weekend. Additionally, pieces that get enough silent bids go to the live art auction on Saturday evening. Check out the SoonerCon Art Show page for more info.

Club Tables are intended for clubs, organizations, and conventions – not individuals. Each Club Table comes with two weekend memberships.

Sales of any type are prohibited at club tables. If you want to sell things or raise money for your organization, you must purchase an Artist Alley table, instead of a Club Table. Exceptions to this rule may be made for non-profit organizations with prior written approval from our club coordinator.

How do I get an Artist Alley table?
