The perfect space for a small cocktail event in the front, with an excellent kitchen area to prepare a few quick dishes to serve.
This space is incredible. My event was amazing again. For my Summer event we had brilliant lighting through the skylights and back garage doors with a great cool breeze. The gallery space was beautiful for our end of evening meditation. Love this place!
Great as always!
Zero complaints, everyone loved it.
This is a fantastic space in a convenient location. Cindy was helpful and welcoming, would highly recommend this space for art shows or other events.
Great space had everything we needed. Everything looks clean and new
Consistently one of the easiest places to deal with. Great space, good technology set-up, clean bathrooms, and it even has AC - I know it doesn't sound like a big deal, but it's a godsend for large spaces in the summer.
We loved this space and instructions for use of space was easy to follow. Thank you Cindy!
As always, a great space to hold our events!
Wonderful sun-lit community space where I had a weeklong art exhibition and was able to use the kitchen for my opening reception, which was a great help. The space was really easy to use (hanging system, back loading area, SONOS music, security panel) and I was able to gallery sit for the duration. Grateful to be able to store some of my bigger packing supplies in their studio area. Cindy was a good help, considering that I booked with and was liaising with a different colleague until a few weeks before my booking. Appreciate the check ins from her and other colleagues during my time there, and chats with artists in the collective who work in the studio. Great value and experience and I’d definitely book again!
