Wander through the two floors (with elevator) of this restored historic bldg. in downtown Raleigh, poking into the many individual working art studios to see some excellent works. The are usually art shows here and may be first Friday events and other special events.

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. Even if the artist isn't in their studio you can still get a glimpse inside their mind by seeing their layout and works-in-progress, and when they are there, many artists are... More

Interesting place in downtown Raleigh to visit if you want to see what artist studios look like. This is a free place with a couple of very small galleries as well. There are two floors of art studios and a couple of classrooms. Of course art is for sale throughout. This adjoins or is part of the City Market. This... More

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.

Variety of artists practicing their skills in various forms of media in one large, centrally located building. Typically live music present with basic refreshments available. Excellent alternative to the drunken barhopping that is typical of the downtown meat market scene.

My wife drags me there for First Friday and it was awesome. It's the first Friday of every month and the gallery features some very interesting local artists. And they usually are giving out finger food and maybe the occasional glass of wine. The art is interesting also. My favorite is Anna Podris who does this funky thing with bees... More
