SPACE Gallery

Our strongest programs are those that don’t exist elsewhere in the
community. Where commercial and traditional spaces may avoid
risk, we embrace innovation through bold programming choices and
curiosity-driven curating of exhibits and events. As an incubator,
SPACE helps emerging artists present new work, while making
unconventional art and ideas more accessible to the general public.

Each year, we present more than 200 events and more than a dozen
visual arts exhibits, supporting contemporary and emerging artists through opportunities for installations, residencies, workshops and performances.

SPACE presents contemporary, emerging and unconventional arts, artists, and ideas.
