I rented the front gallery space to hold an art show and it was the perfect venue. Modern, clean, spacious, easy to find and the perfect setting to hold a private event. Cindy was so helpful with any questions I had and will definitely recommend this space to others, as well as book it again for myself in the future.
Amazing space, great energy and responsive people!!
The gallery and studio are bright and clean, with amenities and flexibility to support a large or small group. I received multiple positive comments from guests on the space itself. It was perfect for the presentation I did with 20 guests but could have easily accommodated more with seating. Cindy was very flexible and accommodating, accessing the studio was super easy and straightforward. Will definitely rent again!
The space was perfect for our event! Very spacious, organized and clean. Would recommend to anyone who's looking to host a fabulously fun event!
This space is always wonderful and a pleasure to use.
Our experience is always great!
Wow what a great space for an event! Very modern and very open with lots of potential to make it exactly what you need. We had 45 people attend a presentation and mixer in the Gallery and it was outstanding. Rave reviews from everyone who attended.
Amazing space, I would recommend this to all
When I first found this space, I was absolutely ecstatic. It is a gem of a find - a venue that meets accessibility needs, financial affordability, quality and aesthetic of space, and location accessibility. Cindy was incredibly easy to communicate with and their guidelines and requests for space maintenance were clear and easy to follow. I'll definitely be back and I highly recommend!!!
This will be my go to space to book for so many future events now.
