Join us for the 14th annual
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:
8:00pm – 12:00am
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.
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.
