    Spark Arts is a welcoming, colorful, and warm space to celebrate any event. Aviva the owner is the most patient creative and supporting human being that anyone would want to work with on a special day to become one. Aviva has a keen eye for details and her personality brings joy and ease to the whole process. I would highly recomand working with her and celebrating any special day at Spark Arts Gallery.

    Festive, elegant space for wedding or holiday party

    This is a beautiful, festive space with tasteful wood floors and string-lighting. I was here for a holiday party, but it would also work well for a wedding and/or reception. Because it's also a gallery, you are surrounded by art which greatly enhances the experience. Amazing Castro location. A real gem!
