TRI-CON 2015 – FEATURED ARTIST!!!
Tri-Con would like to welcome John Helfrich as our featured artist! John is one of Evansville’s great artists! His portraits are exquisite and will take your breath away. Lose yourself in a captain’s gaze, don’t blink while staring at the angel, be afraid of the menacing alien and laugh at the sight of a sarcastic mercenary. You can find John’s artist table in the exhibitor hall at Tri-Con in September and feast your eyes on his many great works available for purchase and waiting to be hung on the wall of your home! One of John’s fantastic paintings will also be featured in Tri-Con’s charity auction, benefitting PAAWS animal rescue, happening on Sunday of the convention! Some examples of John’s paintings can be found below:

Specializing in chainmail, the shop manufactures full suits of armor as well as putting a spin on common everyday items. You can find dreamcatchers, dice bags, lamp shades, belts, ties, bracelets, necklaces, and other sparkly things in the shop.
Hand crafted every step of the way, from rolling and cutting the 440 stainless steel, to closing each ring, every piece is unique. Most items can be custom fitted on site for complete customer satisfaction.
