Summer Hours/Convention Season

With the summer months approaching and hotter days already here The Rusted Nail has changed their hours. Starting now we will be open Friday 2pm - 10pm, Saturday 11am - 10pm, and Closed Sunday - Thursday with early Sunday morning by appointment only. We will continue to host a new show/event every 2nd Friday 6pm - 11pm and may be open for special events such as Mesa Block Party and any other street fairs.

It's also convention season and we will be closed for Phoenix Comicon May 24th - 27th. We may try to be open after con hours on Friday and Saturday, depending on after party events and well honestly how tired I am.

San Diego Comic-Con is July 11th - 15th and we will be attending. Not realizing that it's a week earlier this year, our 2nd Friday event for July falls on the 13th. If I can find someone to open the doors that night the show will go on, otherwise this may be the first 2nd Friday we'll be closed. Artists involved in the planned show have been contacted and we're working together to make this happen.

Please follow us on Facebook at for up to date information about shows/events and calls for artists.

Neo-Victorian Wasteland II

It's that time again. 2nd Friday is hosting their Sci-Fi Friday event in May and running along side it will be Steampunk Street IV put on by Evermore Nevermore.

The Rusted Nail Gallery will host it's 2nd Neo-Victorian Wasteland show featuring Custom Designer Vinyl, Metal & Wood Sculptures, Original Resin Figures, Paintings, and more done in the Steampunk/Neo-Victorian style.

Anybody is free to submit work for the show. Please contact for more information or to be a part. We will also have a limited amount of space out front for those locals wanting to set up a table. Of coarse you can also contact and sign up for a spot for the 2nd Friday art walk along Main Street.

Star Wars Day: May The Fourth Be With You

Friday May the 4th, otherwise known in the geek community as Star Wars Day. The Rusted Nail Gallery will host an evening of Star Wars themed artwork by local artists. As well as Star Wars collectible toys, comic books, costumes, prizes, and more.

Exclusive Releases:
Star Wars character paintings and prints by local artist Dams
Kid Solo resin figure release by local artist rustedhalo
Nerd Wars T-shirt release by rustedhalo x Doctor Strangebeast
New Kaiju figures from local artist KiLL!

We were originally looking to host this event at another venue, but nobody seemed to want to jump at the opportunity to host a Star Wars themed event or were too busy planning for Free Comic Book Day the following day. So when all else fails, host it yourself.

If you have Star Wars themed art, or maybe looking to sell some Star Wars collectibles or comics and would like to be a part of this event please contact It's just over 1 week out, so if you want to be a part please contact us ASAP so we can plan accordingly.
