Artspace has three spaces available for rent: Gallery Two, our beautiful Lobby, and the Education Room. The entire building is also available for very large events (at which guests will be on two separate floors).
Rentals at Artspace for weddings, parties, and receptions are available Tuesdays through Saturdays, with guests arriving no earlier than 6:00 pm, and on Sundays and Mondays at ANY time. Rentals for meetings and conferences may be held at any time – during regular business hours, evenings, or weekends. After you have made the initial arrangements, Artspace is happy to assist with coordinating the efforts of event planners, caterers, musicians, and rental companies to ensure your event is successful.
Please Note: For a buffet-style event all on one floor, our maximum capacity is approx. 250 guests. For a seated event at which all guests have a seat in one room, our maximum capacity is 125 guests.
Most events use our Gallery Two, which has a seated maximum capacity of 100 to 125. However, buffet-style receptions with as many as 250+ guests are popular at Artspace. This is accomplished by expanding the footprint of your event into our hallway adjacent to the Gallery. (There is no additional charge for use of the hallway.) With the Gallery’s double doors opening diagonally into our wide hallway, this is a lovely setup that provides a natural flow for your guests in a setting surrounded by our art studios. The hallway is the perfect place for your food and/or beverage tables, and possibly additional (standing) cocktail tables.
