I've been here with friends and family... does not disappoint. Unique and local artwork, themed rooms, surprising twists... it falls somewhere between art gallery and carnival funhouse. When I visited with family we had the fortune of meeting an artist that was working on-site, (in a room off to the side that had a larger metalworks area beyond). He told... More

Looking for something unique to do in the Roc? This is it. Eclectic art gallery with so much to see. Even meet the local artists. I absolutely love the detail in the building from the brick floors to every winding space that consistantly keeps you saying "there's more!" Many, many, different types of art here. Definitley worth seeing if your... More

We will be going back to spend a day there looking around. Not enough time to see everything when there is an open bar at a wedding reception.

If you like old, new, crazy and downright fun art work and want to meet the artists - you will love the Artisan Works in Rochester. I especially loved turning and twisting around this old building , in and out of little hidden spaces filled with all kinds of artwork from oil paintings to wood carvings to spheres that hang...

This incredibly unique space is a hidden gem. It is a massive WWI munitions factory turned art museum and banquet space. Its the home of literally thousands of pieces of art from all different mediums. Some are for sale some are not. Some you can play with and touch and some you may not. It has themed rooms such as...

I have never visited a place quite like this. Original art hanging in every space of this warehouse. A great place to hold an event. They bring in local catering. At the event I attended we all created original art paintings. Very fun night.

We visited on a wintry afternoon, and as always, agreed we just have to come more often. Whether you're looking straight ahead, left, right, or up, there's something absolutely amazing to see. Much of the art is of gallery or museum quality, while lots is campy antiques and collectibles. (The old dental suite? The taxidermied giraffe and fighting lions?) I... More

So glad we visited Artisan Works. It has an overwhelming display of all types of art, all over the place. Truly a must see if you visit Rochester. It is an art gallery and more, so much more enjoyable than a typical art museum. I saw many things I liked from artists I had never seen before. Their web site... More

If I had someone coming to visit Rochester and they asked me what the one thing is that they should see before leaving it would be Artistan Works. This place is truly unique; one part art gallery, one part museum, one part flea market. There is just so much interesting "stuff" to see here. I would call before going though,... More
