2015 – Exhibitor Hall

Here are some of the great vendors and artists that were at Tri-Con 2015!

We had a lot of great submissions but we SOLD OUT of spots for the Exhibitor Hall quick. Be sure to apply for a spot early when we open up the Exhibitor Application.


John Helfrich
John Helfrich

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: Captian Kirk Jean Luc Picard Joker Pikachu

Originally started as a hobby in 2010, G & G Armory quickly turned into something much larger than previously envisioned. Eva Gehlert, owner and armorer, quickly realized that chainmail was the art form she had been looking for.
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.
