The 1st Annual Original Arts Expo (OAX) is being held in Orlando, Florida on January 26 to 28, 2024 at the newly renovated DoubleTree by Hilton at the Entrance to Universal Studios and will exclusively showcase original comic, illustration, and other narrative art forms with the aim to immediately establish itself as the premiere visual storytelling art event in the United States. OAX has been designed from the ground up to celebrate the attending Artists while honoring Original Art Collectors. The show promises to be an intimate and immersive three-day can’t miss party and networking event focused entirely on this art collecting genre. As part of the show’s philosophy, OAX will coordinate unique art drops, commission opportunities and experiences with Artists and OA Sellers to present Attendees with many unique collecting opportunities that they will get nowhere else.

We’ll continue announcing updates to this list over on the Comic Art LIVE YouTube channel, and talking regularly with attending Art Reps, Artists and Dealers who are exhibiting at OAX. Exhibitors who have signed on to be a part of the first OAX include 4C Comics, Anthony’s Comic Book Art, Will’s Comic Art Page, ComicConnect, ComicLink, Essential Sequential, Got Super Powers?, Hake’s Auctions, Heritage Auctions, Jade Giant Comic Art, Next Comic Art, Panel Page Art, Romitaman, Scott Eder, and TDArt Gallery.

We’d like to encourage couples to enjoy the weekend together, so there’s a special rate to add your significant other for the reception and weekend, or single day tickets. Children of attendees 16 and under get in free. Click Here for ticket prices and more information about the benefit of each ticket level.

For the first time in the history of pop culture events we’re also providing an Art Collectors Alley for Collectors who also wish to exhibit at OAX. Collectors are the lifeblood of the twice annual Comic Art LIVE event held on CAF, and we’ve set aside a very limited number of tables for those wishing to have a space on the OAX floor. We know you’d probably want to share the booth with another Collector so we have special pricing available. Contact Us for more information!
