The Space A 600+ sq. foot contemporary art gallery located inside the Flatbed Building, an old warehouse turned arts complex.

I rented this gallery to propose to my girlfriend. The gallery was beautiful and Troy went above and beyond to make sure everything went perfectly. I really appreciate the effort he put into making our experience memorable and would definitely recommend this space for events.
The Space: The gallery itself is small and intimate. Perfect for small gathering or private event. It is clean and Troy went above and beyond to help transform the space to my liking. The Host: Troy was unbelievably helpful from start to finish. He was very easy to communicate, responsive, and understanding. He even brought his own wonderful ideas to the table. The Event: I planned a proposal in Troy's art gallery. The art that was being displayed at the time was beautiful and vibrant, and it helped add color to the event I was planning. Overall: I would recommend this space to anyone. There is plenty of parking and the host is amazing and kind.
