You Got Questions. We Have Answers!
BAM! Was created to allow artists a way to meet and engage with a new client base.
Unlike other art festivals, showcases, or exhibits we do not limit our showcasing artists off whom they know, extensive portfolio reviews, or ask for a lot of money to showcase.
We wanted to create an event that celebrates originality.

What is BAM! BrewArt Month?
BAM! is an artist showcase that is open to both first times showcasing artists and veterans. It is a month-long event that takes place at different breweries throughout the month. An artist showcases once during the event. Each accommodating location only hosts on a single designated day. On average there are between 5 to 15 hosting locations. Along with 30 to 50 featured artists.
Artists are assigned to a hosting location.
How do I register my portfolio?
You can email your portfolio directly to info@whitephoenixarts. You submit your $15 application fee or your portfolio will not be reviewed. If we do not get your completed registration form and payment we will invoice you your payment.
If I have showcased before, do I have to pay the registration fee again?
No, once you have registered once for BAM! you don’t have to pay the registration fee again.
How much does it cost to showcase?
Each artist must register at least once. This process costs the artist $15.
This money goes to portfolio evaluation and, if selected to showcase, a profile is created for the artist.
The basic package to showcase is $40.00.
The artist is responsible for bringing their own materials. This being the display boards, tables, chairs, and credit card reader.
Artists can rent out equipment from WhitePHOENIXarts to display with. On average this will be around $100 to $300.
This covers display boards, tables, chairs, tents, and over items needed to showcase.
