Origins Art Show
Origins has always been proud of its artists, showcasing the talents of industry professional and amateur artists alike. You can visit the Origins Art Show - the highlight of the Origins Art Expo. Many featured artists will be present to talk over their pieces with you, sell you some of their work, or put together a composition of your favorite character or monster on the spot to take home.
Each year we feature the Art Competition, where professionals and amateurs may compete and be judged in the following categories: Best Historical, Best Fantasy, Best Science Fiction, Best Game-Related, Best Color, Best Three-Dimensional/Mixed Media, Best Monochromatic, and of course, Best of Show. Amateurs and professionals will be awarded separate First, Second, Third awards. Ballots will be available onsite and the panel of expert judges will be comprised of guest artists and industry experts.
GAMA was formed in 1977 to protect the interests of the Origins Game Fair. It incorporated as a non-profit organization in 1982. Since then, it has expanded to become the premier trade association for the hobby games industry. Its mission is to promote the general interest of all persons engaged in the buying, selling, licensing, and manufacturing of hobby game products. To that end, GAMA provides member affinity programs such as handbooks, trade and consumer shows, and education programs.
