WORK_SPACE has assembled a collection of artworks that display, pay homage to, or are made out of automobile materials in a celebration of all things auto. This exhibit will run from July 19th – August 28th. An opening reception will be held on the Thursday prior to Cruisin’ on Main – the largest downtown cruise and classic car show of its kind in the Northeast.

Don’t stop there! We have a whole list of events happening that weekend:

Thursday, August 1st

Beer & Business: Monthly Networking Hour (5 – 6pm)

“Auto-Fueled” Art Exhibit Opening (6 – 8 pm)

Friday, August 2nd

SKYLARK CITY! (7:30 – 10pm)

Sunday, August 4th

Cruisin on Main (8am – 3pm)

WORK_SPACE Open House (10am – 3pm)


TED TALK Tuesday is a monthly networking gathering where professionals of different fields come together to watch a TED TALK (or other interesting 20-min or less video) and discuss its relevance to our personal and professional development. Let’s discuss the science of happiness by watching Michelle Gielan’s talk on “Broadcasting Happiness”. 

Bring your lunch and business cards. WORK_SPACE provides beverages and cake (we celebrate that month’s birthdays). We encourage people to share this event with friends and colleagues and suggest that meet you at WORK_SPACE.


Each month, a local brewery and restaurant sponsor a tasting in our downtown art gallery, and then participate in a panel on their entrepreneurial journeys. Join us for a special beer & BBQ tasting. September’s sponsors will be: Hen & Hound Catering (Bolton), CT Mograph Meetup (organized by WORK_SPACE member & motion graphics artist, Allison Butler) and local brewery TBA. This is a free networking opportunity for area professionals. 


WORK_SPACE’s second annual Holiday Pop-Up Shoppe will take place the week following Thanksgiving. This 3-day market will open on December 5th to coincide with both the Town of Manchester’s annual Tree Lighting on Main Street and our own Beer & Business Networking Happy Hour
