Located near downtown Santa Rosa in the SOFA Arts District near several good restaurants and parks. The gallery space is approximately 800 square feet which can accommodate up to 50 guests.

This venue was absolutely beautiful ! I booked the yard area for my baby shower and it was so perfect. It was a hot day, but the shaded tree made a huge difference, you couldn’t even tell it was a summer day. Simmon was a GREAT host, he was so responsive, kind and helped out so much. If I ever had an event, I’d definitely book here again !
It worked perfectly for my gathering. It ended up being scheduled last minute, so I was really glad that the host was able to accommodate my group. Only one hiccup with the heat, but otherwise it was great!
Simmon was very responsive and accommodating which was nice being that we were not familiar with the area. The space was as advertised and perfect for a workshop discussion which is what why we rented the space for. Although a bit chilly on the inside, we'd definitely reserve the space again, but would probably lean towards an afternoon session during a warmer time of day.
We held a bridal shower for my daughter at Chroma Gallery for 30 people. After a scary, hectic week of being evacuated with the NorCal wildfires having this event brought some normality to our life. Simmon was great to work with and helped us setup the gallery providing tables and chairs along with helping us move a few items around to have more space. Everyone had a great time and really like the look, feel, and atmosphere of having the event in the chroma gallery space because it made it a more intimate setting for all the guests. Having all the art work around us was inspiring and provided a very nice feel to the space for our event. I would highly recommend this space (which also included the outdoor space which we did not use due to the wildfires) but would also recommend due to its large space. I would definitely book other events here. Its located in a great area, is a great space, and the communication and help from Simmon was just right.
The backyard area was the perfect spot for our afternoon engagement party! Simon was very accommodating and welcoming! We had a lovely time! If we have another casual family event, we will be back!
