release party and art exhibition

I'm a singer-songwriter coming out with my 2nd EP this winter and looking for an art gallery / performance space for the release party. My hopes are to have my visual artist friends exhibit their pieces as well as my musical artist friends perform as opening acts. Your space looks perfect for both occasions with your adjacent empty exhibit room!

artistic marriage proposal

I want to have my marriage proposal here. My girlfriend is an artist and loves art so the idea was to convert it to an art gallery with art pieces made by me and her friends that represent our relationship. Then followed by a small reception with friends and family.

30th birthday with art gallery theme

I'm currently looking for a venue to host my 30th birthday party. I had friends write poems and take portraits for this event and wanted to showcase them (either in the form of a book or maybe displayed like an art gallery). We would also like to use your venue to dance. I wanted to know if we would be able to use your venue for a possible art gallery-type vibe and some dancing.

rehearsal dinner at an art gallery

I am the mother of the groom and we would like to have our rehearsal dinner in your Art Gallery. We plan to have a catered buffet. I just now read the age requirements and am concerned that I didn't mention that we will have four small children and two babies attending. Please let me know if that will be a problem. The children are well-behaved and we promise to supervise them closely. Thanks very much,
