about


As you may have guessed, we are an art show, but we are not your typical art gallery. Since 2009 we've been filling the best venues in over 30 cities around the world with your favorite local artists, photographers, bands, and DJ's. We focus on keeping the work on display local and original to help artists of all types sell their work while they're still alive (why does it take dying to gain recognition?). Each show usually features between 50-150 local artisans, a unique lineup of live musicians and/or DJs, live painting, body painting, along with other forms of entertainment. Oh, and of course PANCAKES!  

We seek to bring the art community and those outside the community together by creating an upbeat art show that appeals to the masses. Through the shows we create an environment where artists, potential buyers, and pancake fanatics alike can make connections with several different types of people within their own communities.  For a current list of our locations around the world click here.

There’s no final deadline for submissions. We accept art until the show is full. This varies from city to city and show to show but averages to be about 1-2 weeks before the show date.

You'll need to display between 3-10 pieces for the show.

In most cities our walls are 4f wide by 8f tall; there are exceptions to this in certain locations, and will be noted in the information you receive after your submission is accepted.

We do provide lights over the walls the art is hung on.

There's a $15 hanging contribution for EACH piece you display in the gallery space. This helps us cover the costs of the show (venue, music, security, free pancake bar, wall repairs, hanging supplies, staff, etc).

Your hanging contribution is due when you arrive for installation. At this time we accept cash only. Receipts are available upon request.


Nope. We take ZERO commission on sales so you'll pocket 100% of everything you sell.

You do. We believe that cutting us out of the sales equation creates a connection between the artist and the buyer that wouldn't otherwise be present. That said, we're always available to act on your behalf if needed. If we do, we will accept cash only. We will still take NO COMMISSION ON SALES and will give you 100% of your earnings at the end of the event.

Bring your art and payment for your work. We supply all the tools necessary for hanging (hammers, nails, screws, screw guns, etc.).
