The artist is responsible for the transportation of all artwork to their assigned venue. WhitePHOENIXarts and the partners will not support the transporting of goods on the artist's behalf. Neither WhitePHOENIXarts or its partners will be held liable or accountable for any lost, stolen, or damaged goods. WhitePHOENIXarts will have procedures put into place to reduce this risk of lost, stolen, or damaged goods from happening but ultimately the artist is responsible for their own goods.
If pieces must be shipped, the artist is responsible for packaging and shipping the goods and covering all expenses. The artist is responsible for specialty installation supplies; two-dimensional work must be ready to hang and provided with appropriate hanging hardware. The artist is responsible for their setup. The artist can rent display boards, tables, and/or tents from WhitePHOENIXarts for an additional cost.
The venue location will help in supplying tables and chairs for the artist to showcase their work. Tables and chairs are not guaranteed. The artist is responsible for supplying any additional lighting or decoration for their display space.
A display charge will be issued to the artist when chosen for the event. The display prices will vary depending on which day and location of the event. This will help cover expenses for the venue location, advertisements, and processing of information by WhitePHOENIXarts. If selected to present at the showcase the artist must pay WhitePHOENIXarts on the notified date and time. A link to the payment center will be emailed to the artists upon acceptance of their portfolio along with the payment due date.
It is recommended that the presenting artists have their own means to take payments for items sold at the showcase. Additionally, it is recommended that the artists have a vendor’s license and collect sales tax upon receipt of payment. WhitePHOENIXarts and the breweries are not responsible for processing transactions between customers and artist presenters/vendors.
The partnering hosts and locations WILL NOT ACCEPT PAYMENT ON BEHALF OF THE ARTIST.
Partnering locations will help break large bills if artists need help but WILL NOT ACCEPT PAYMENTS on the artist's behalf.
It is strongly encouraging that artists take their own payments. Credit card readers, checks, or cash are the most recommended way of taking payments from customers. If you are doing cash payments, please write down the amount in a notebook. This is for your internal records.
If the artist cannot process their own payments, then WhitePHOENIXarts will help make payments on the artists' behalf. There will be a 15% service charge for processing payments.
A 7.5% sales tax will be applied to items sold. WhitePHOENIXarts will process the sales tax with their vendor's license. The consigned artist will not need to process sales tax. A receipt and transaction history can be provided to the artist if needed for their records.
Artists will be paid for items sold by WhitePHOENIXarts via check or PayPal within 5 days after the payment has been issued.
We do not recommend using Venmo to take payments. This releases your personal information to the customers. Using secure resources like PayPal or a Square Chip reader is the recommended approach.

By supporting WhitePHOENIXarts in the advertisement for the event you help us bring more funds into the organization. This helps us create more events like BAM! to support the artistic community.
Artists are free to advertise for the event on their own behalf.

If WhitePHOENIXarts find that the advertisement is misleading or misrepresenting to the event or any of the brewery partners. Then a request for immediate removal of that or those images will be requested and mandated.
