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.

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.
