theArtWorks™ can make it happen. We have 7200 square feet of gallery space that doubles as space for events large and small.

We have a system of movable walls that can be configured to partition the event space in just the way you need it.

Art Lounge

Our Art Lounge is perfectly suited for medium sized events and supporting larger events in the Gallery Verrazano. We've hosted banquets, Christmas parties, Downtown Business Alliance meetings, art openings and live music. It’s a great place to put cocktail tables for socializing and networking. It can also be used to set up tables for ticketing or food and drink.

We have two 20' by 20' (400 sqft in total) meeting rooms near the small gallery. Each meeting room can be set up for conferences, classes or as empty rooms.
