John Jude Palencar has a couple of shows coming up in November.
The third annual IlluXCon symposium will take place in Altoona, PA on November 11-14, 2010.
As the only convention exclusively dedicated to fantastic art, IlluXCon welcomes artists, students, collectors, and fans to a four-day celebration of the field.
IlluXCon features the largest gathering of fantastic art and artists in the world. The 2010 show will feature nearly 60 artists in the main exhibition, with many more included in the IlluXCon Showcase. Several hundred original paintings and drawings will be on display at the show, along with demonstrations, lectures, round tables, art director portfolio reviews, and a live bronze pour.
In addition, IlluXCon 3 will also feature a special exhibition culled from the forthcoming Vanguard book A CENTURY OF DRAGONS. DRAGONS will feature the 100 best contemporary dragon paintings and artists, and roughly 1/4 of those original works will be on display at the show.

AT THE MOUNTAINS OF MADNESS: A TRIBUTE TO THE WRITINGS OF LOVECRAFT
October 16, 2010 - November 8, 2010
Opening Reception / Oct 16, 7:00PM - 11:00PM
So much of existence is beyond the realm of common understanding and perhaps it is best that it remains so. The writings of H.P. Lovecraft explore this realm of incomprehensible existence and most often the terror that accompanies. For often, the concepts that are most horrific to us are those things outside of our understanding.
With much of his most notable work written during the last decade of his life, H.P. Lovecraft's reputation has grown substantially after his death and he is now considered one of the most influential horror writers of the 20th century.
Can't beat a bit of tentacle weirdness from Lovecraft.
