Great spot to visit on First Friday. It would be good if they provided a little more information outside each space on the artists or a general overview. However, great to wander and enjoy a little wine.

As an artist myself, I am always curious about other artists! Watching them work, observing their techniques and styles, and enjoying seeing their creative space is always so cool.

My daughter had an exhibition here on First Friday. Very innovative space with mixture of individual workspace galleries and larger exhibition rooms. I was impressed with the artists there and would go back.

A great facility, with several nice galleries featuring solo exhibits and a large number of individual studios with local artists and artisans working and displaying their creations. Go here for a very enjoyable experience - great range of caliber talent from traditional to contemporary.

There is no shortage of art found at Art Space. There is a turn-over, however. Don't expect too many bargains but the art is interesting. A lot of talented, creative people.

My husband and I had a nice dinner at Calavera before walking across the street to Artspace for First Friday. Appreciated the live music and variety of artists in a unique and quaint setting.
