Gallery 901

We enjoy builging relationships with local artists and displaying their work on a rotating basis throughout WORK_SPACE including Gallery 901 which consists of the main staircase and our Collaborative Coworking and Meeting Spaces on the 2nd floor.

Currently we are featuring:





The Loop Gallery

The Loop Gallery lies within the hallway that connects four unique meeting venues on the first floor of WORK_SPACE. 

Wistful World by Geoffrey Houghton

Wistful World is a representation of Geoffrey Houghton’s latest works related to colorful and outlandish characters… a unique path of time, fashion & technology. A self-taught artist, Geoff enjoys creating watercolor paintings in a vivid and bold way that has been referred to as a sub-genre of Steampunk with his earlier works. You’ll discover his art focuses primarily on eccentric and enchanting damsels that portray a different time, technology and fashion. His current work expresses his desire to display more “edgy” and melancholy emotions with his characters. He has won numerous painting awards, including 1st place for his painting “Lizzie returns to Centre County” at the competitive Monson Arts Council show in Monson, MA. He also was published on the covers of a phonebook & two literature magazines.
