Evening Showcase

The Evening Showcase is the show-within-a-show that celebrates imaginative artists working in all mediums, both digital and traditional, with 130 artists exhibiting in a cocktail party-like setting at the Doubletree Hotel.

2022 Main Show Hours:

Evening Showcase
8:00pm – 12:00am


The IX Showcase is a non-juried exhibition featuring 130 artists displaying their work in both traditional and digital formats.

This exhibition takes place on Friday and Saturday nights in the 12,000 square foot ballroom of the Reading DoubleTree by Hilton. The IX Showcase is an innovative show-within-a-show held Friday and Saturday nights during IX. While the Main Show is juried and restricted to traditional media only, the Showcase is open to all on a first-come, first-served basis and allows both digital and traditional mediums.

The Showcase is held from 8 pm until midnight on Friday and Saturday evening – after the Main Show has closed for the day – ensuring that the Showcase is attended by all IX attendees and exhibitors with no competition from other exhibits/events. In addition, the Showcase is open to the public free of charge, further enhancing its traffic flow and serving as a welcoming introduction to IX and imaginative realism for the Reading area.

Showcase Artists

Originally created as a way to allow IX artist attendees to display their work while attending the show, the Showcase has become a high-demand event in its own right, with the available tables usually selling out within minutes.

“My first time visit to IX was an eye opener, it gave me a new impulse to push further in my work. It introduced me to a close knit community in which I was accepted immediately. The showcase is an excellent way of showcasing your work, getting it under the noses of some of the best in the business and inspiring colleagues. Getting feedback and contacts that transcend the business and extend into the personal. Rubbing elbows with those you’ve looked up to for years and getting to know enthusiasts that share your passion is a spark that ignites a fires that won’t die down.”

“IX is one of my favorite times of year and the showcase is a main highlight of the event. Everything I love about IX, the community, the shared love of craft, the enthusiasm for the subject matter, is most apparent in the late hours of the showcase evenings. This is where everyone can let loose a little, simply enjoy work from seasoned pros and passionate young artists alike and let the joy of our community surround them.”
