Artists can submit their artwork by filling out our online submission form HERE.
If accepted, there is a $15 per piece, HANGING FEE, to display your work. We have a 3 piece minimum and 10 piece maximum per artist.
There are NO COMMISSION ON SALES. You take 100% of what you sell. The $15 per piece goes toward to production costs of the event. (i.e.: venue rental, staff, building materials, etc.)
Payment is not due until the DAY OF installation.
We accept CASH ONLY! Sorry NO CHECKS or other forms of payment.
There is a strict 3f x 3f MAX SIZE LIMIT for each piece you'd like to exhibit. This is due to the size of the wall panels we use to display your work. Sorry, but no work over 3'x3' in size will be able to fit on the walls. Anything under this size will be fine though.
DROP OFF and INSTALLATION TIMES & DATES vary from show to show. In most cases, installtion is on the day of the event between 12-5p. In some, it is a day or two before the show. Once accpeted we'll inform you of the correct times for your city.
There is no DEADLINE for submitting artwork. We take art until we fill all the wall space available. P&B is an extremely popular show, so we recommend reserving space as soon as possible.
We will have a number of live artists creating work during the event. We open the floor up anyone who wants to create a live art piece or do body painting for the show. Please just bring your supplies, along with a drop cloth, and do your thing. There is no need to sign up. All materials must be odor free.
If you’re a model or body painter looking to team up with someone for the event, please post images and a comment on the event link of the show. Many artists and models post on the event page looking for others to team up with. You can find the event link in our EVENTS schedule above.
We will have all the tools necessary to hang your work (screw guns, hammers, nails, screws, etc). If you need any special hanging materials outside of this you'll need to provide them. Please feel free to bring an extra hammer and/or screw gun to help expedite the installation process.
Your work must be READY-TO-HANG with wire installed on the back. This is especially important for photography in picture frames. This ensures fast and secure hanging of your work in the gallery. *Note: Stretched canvas works do not need to be wired. All others MUST be wired. No exceptions.
Hanging is most often done by the artist in an area assigned by our staff. We are always available to help out in any way needed though. Please note that this is a salon style show & that all work is not at eye level.
If you want to sell your work we highly recommend creating some TITLE CARDS. They usually have your name, title of work, contact info, price, and medium. Ultimately, we leave this completely up to your creativity. Please provide them when you drop off your work.
Most of the sales go through the artist. We highly recommend that everyone get a credit card swiper for their phone. SquareUp and PayPal both are good options. We do not take credit cards so having your own system in place is key for making sales.
If you're not around, we will make a sale in your absence and give you cash at the end of the night. As noted above, we do not take credit cards/checks/debit cards. If we act on your behalf during a transaction it will be cash only. We take NO COMMISSION ON SALES and will give you 100% of the cash sale at the end of the event.
After the transaction is made the buyer is allowed to take the work home with them on the spot. It is wise for you to have an extra piece on hand because you're welcome to hang a replacement piece of equal or lesser size in the place of your sold piece. There is no extra fee for this.
You're welcome to bring a small bin/tote/bag/etc to sell prints out of. Sorry, but we do not allow artists to set up tables to sell prints from.
All artists and vendors will be on the guestlist for free entry. All others will be asked to pay the $5 cover. Due to the amount of people involved there are no +1's or guest lists. This includes any assistants.
