SheVaCon stands for Shenandoah Valley Convention, so named because it began in Staunton Virginia — located in the Shenandoah Valley. SheVaCon is a Science Fiction and Fantasy, Horror, Costuming and Gaming Convention. Keener has participated in this event for the past nine years.

This year’s convention will showcase Keener’s many talents, as a published author and artist, photographer, sculptor, and graphic designer. He uses pencil to express his visions and ideas of the world around him. Those “visions” have earned him numerous awards including an international judges choice award and a Chesley nomination.

He earned an MFA in Sculpture from the University of Pennsylvania, and a BS degree in Studio Art from Skidmore College.
