By far one of the best experiences I have had booking a venue. Michael is an excellent host and was very accommodating. He responds very quickly and helps out the night of with a smile! We had art viewing and music listening party and this space set the perfect tone! I recommend this venue and Michael to anyone who wants to have a smooth night in a very clean space!
Absolutely loved our experience working with Foley! The space was beautiful-- exactly as described-- and it was very helpful to have a staff member on-site to answer questions. 5/5 would recommend booking!
I used this space for a one-day art exhibition. This gallery was perfect. It is spacious, great lighting, and is situated in a wonderful location. Michael and Sherri were great! They were friendly, super helpful, accomadating, and quickly responded to all of the questions I had before the exhibition. Michael was there on the day of the exhibition to make sure everything went smoothly and he was nice enough to help with extra materials I needed such as an outlet, plates, and etc. He really assisted in making this exhibition a success. I highly recommend booking space! I would definitely book this space again. Thank you so much Sherri and Michael!
Michael was amazing from start to finish. He was on site to accommodate all of our needs. It was a pleasure to do business with him The space was beautiful, and huge! We were given the option to remove the artwork off the walls. The walls were classic white and with the dimmer switch for the lights, the mood was perfect. used this space for a soft launch for my website, New York Artists Exchange. I would love to use this space again in September.
We had an art exhibition with 75 ish guests at Foley Gallery on June 20. Michael and the Foley team were great to work with throughout the whole process (booking, communicating, installing and deinstalling). For those looking for a great entertaining/exhibition space, I highly recommend Foley.
We used the venue for a pop-up art exhibit. Micheal was such a great host. He is super professional, friendly, and pretty chill -- all of which made the process of booking and using the space pretty effortless. The venue was pretty large and was perfect for displaying the pieces of our three artists and accommodate almost a hundred guests throughout the evening. Overall a great experience and I would book again.
Michael was incredibly helpful and responsive at all times. The space was amazing for our visual arts and performance showcase, fit about 120 people. The lighting in the space was great! At the end of our event, Michael let us know that he would keep in touch if we left anything in the space and was very kind. Will definitely use the space again in the future.
