Art & CultureSupporting and Showcasing Local Artists
WORK_SPACE has three separate and yet complimentary Art Galleries, as well as multiple venues, that can be utilized for performance space, artisan pop-up shoppes, and creativity workshops. Please contact a member of the WORK_SPACE staff if you are an artist wanting to share your talents with our community.
All of the WORK_SPACE galleries are free and open to the public Monday through Friday between the hours of 10a-4p unless the space is being occupied for a meeting or special event. Please feel free to stop by and see the ever-changing exhibits or call us at 860.647.6029 for information.
