The blend of space, location, and design made ArtWorks perfect for our wedding reception. Guests could dance, chat, or browse local artists' studios around the venue. The staff is flexible and knowledgeable. Despite our stress, Albert kept a laid-back, "We've got you!" attitude the whole way through, enduring our visits and our impromptu dance practice in the main gallery. They have several tables and chairs on hand and there was plenty of room for our 130 guests. Our reception looked gorgeous, access for older guests was a snap, and we were able to have an ice cream truck, too! I would absolutely book there again for another large occasion.Sent on 05/09/2018

Art works was great leading up to the wedding as well as the day of the wedding. They were around the entire wedding to help with anything we needed.Sent on 07/11/2017

I loved working with Artworks, from the first meeting throughout the entire experience, I never once hesitated and I am glad I did not! The vendor list was helpful and the staff is phenomenal!!! Plus you save tons on decoration cause they provide the art, the lights and the white globes! I cannot praise the venue enough! One thing to note is I had 17 tables in the large gallery and I think that might be about the maximum, so if you are planning many more than 170 for a seated dinner, it might start to get tight if you want a dance floor too! But it was perfect for our size group, and even with 170 there was still plenty of room for a bar, buffett, dancing and a whole dessert table, plus a photobooth! I am even trying to convince my boss to do a holiday party there sometime cause I loved the venue so much! An added bonus is that your guests have time to look at the galleries while you are taking pictures after the ceremony! I had two out-of-towners that want to come back to purchase art!!! Top notch service!!!Sent on 11/02/2016
