After visiting Art Works for the first time, we knew this was the place! The staff is very helpful, friendly, and flexible. They offer different sized packages to fit weddings and other special events of all types. The package we chose was just right for us and included table set up/disassembly, some decorations, parking, kitchen for the caterers, ample space, and more. Prior to the event, the staff is always ready to answer any questions or concerns and they respond in a very timely manner. They provide you with lists of vendors they have worked with before to help you out, but you are also welcome to use outside vendors as well. They allow you and your vendors to set up the day before your event and day of if your event is later in the day. They can even help you plan out where tables, etc. need to go and you are always welcome to stop by during their normal business hours to plan things out. Because of certain specifications of the venue, a liquor license is not required for certain events. We did not need one and we found this to be very helpful; we only needed to provide qualified bar tenders, which we were able to acquire from our caterer. During your event, the different galleries are open, so, if you have a cocktail hour or if guests arrive early, they are welcome to view the different art work and keep themselves entertained instead of sitting at a table and waiting. Overall, it was a very pleasurable experience and wonderful people to work with!Sent on 12/27/2014

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
