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

This artist studio space is 25 years old, and contains 2 stories of artist studios. We met an interesting video artist doing a residency there, who told us about Raleigh and the local arts scene. There are many different types of artists here, very flavorful, and best of all free. The artists we ran into were friendly and happy to... More

Lots of artists, lots of different styles. I would have rated it excellent if more of the artist had been in and working. This is for working artists and they can market their work right there.
