I had the pleasure of renting out Kristin's space for my first solo exhibition and absolutely loved the gallery. The walls are beautiful, even and really white. I appreciate that we can use vinyls for display in the window and on the walls in the space, it definitely gives the gallery a more professional feel. The lighting is perfect, bright and really brought out all the color and detail in my work. The display window is also a great way to draw in foot traffic in the area. The wifi is fast which I certainly appreciated. The washroom is new and modern and fully stacked with toilet paper, paper towels, soap, Windex etc.. There is a Beer Store, LCBO and Loblaws very close by and the food in the local area is also great too if you're ordering in while working in the space. The area is very safe through the day and the night and the people in the area are really friendly. Kristin is an awesome host and is really good at responding to emails, definitely put me at ease while I planned my show. She also made a recommendation for someone to install my work which worked out because it was cheaper than many other installation services in the city and he did a wonderful job. I'm so happy I chose this space for my first solo show. It looked exactly how I wanted it to and I wouldn't change a thing about the space it was perfect, thank you!

Kristin was great! Communication was quick and she answered all my questions/concerns. She made arrangements for me as I had some special requirements for this rental. The space itself was exactly what I had imagined. I used it for a wedding proposal and the end result was exactly what I was envisioning in my head. All rooms came in handy and the back yard was amazing at night. Thank you Kristin for being a great host!
