The gallery was originally part of “Automobile Row” at the turn of the 20th century. It first functioned as a brake shop and maintains much of its historic architecture and signage. In 1968, riots following the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr. caused citywide destruction. The loft in much of its current state represents the city’s attempt to rebuild and revitalize after these riots.

Perfect for rehearsal dinner and welcome drinks!
We hosted our rehearsal, rehearsal dinner and Friday night welcome party at Fathom Gallery to kick off our wedding weekend!Sent on 10/03/2019
We worked with Kristen from start to finish and she was super easy to work with, very responsive and fun. She had great ideas for setup and decor when needed and was there on the day of our event to make sure that everything went off without a hitch! Kristen makes planning a dream!!!
We were able to play our own music through FG's sound system and we loved having framed photos of us on the walls.
I'd absolutely recommend this space for brides looking for a hip space to host both a rehearsal dinner and welcome party all in one spot. Old Blue BBQ was our caterer and they worked seamlessly with Kristen to pull off a perfect event.

The most perfect evening!
We are absolutely over the moon with the experience we had at Fathom Gallery and with their entire team. From start to finish, they made it incredibly easy to plan and help us fine tune our idea for our wedding. It was fantastic having one spot for both ceremony and reception, and they do this so frequently that they're incredibly efficient. The space is so beautiful on its own that it really didn't need much in the way of additional decor, and I LOVE that they include printing photos for you to hang gallery-style.Sent on 10/15/2018
