Sarah has been attending science fiction conventions since the late seventies. The artwork she most enjoys creating are those connected with the fantastic and she is gratified at the response of con-goers to her award-winning paintings of Magnus & Loki, the cat and dragon companions, which have been the most fun of all her fantastic creations. Sarah works in a photo-real style, mostly in oils.
Online pre-registration for the convention is up and running.
Any weekend badges purchased by April 1st will be $5 off the badge rate at the door.

We are planning to hold an event this year, and barring a flair up from covid (or something else), we will be doing so April 8-10th.
Our theme this year is "Fandom is Family".
At this time we are expecting to have everyone in attendance wear a mask. Additionally we plan to at least following all local, state and federal guidance in reference to the pandemic.
Looking forward to seeing the community again.
The kickoff event will have a live dealers room from 1-3:00 pm on Sat, April 17th.
Come take a look and see if you find something you can't live without.
This event will take place via zoom, with a separate breakout room for each dealer. (We will post the zoom invite info on Saturday on the ConStellation Online 2021 page.)
If you are a dealer and are interested, get in contact with us and we will work with you.
