Great place with lots of cool art! I went at the Earth exhibit. Lots of paintings and art collections inside. Definitely a must visit during your day at Distillery! Lots of cool decor as well
Beautiful gallery had a wonderful experience being able to walk through safely the other day.
Wanted to share for details about this event space for weddings (as of 2020 and 2021). - On-peak reception fee is $3735 for 2020 - 50% is due at booking (non-refundable) and 50% is due 90-days before. - If we need to cancel, we can use 70% of the booking fee towards art at the gallery. - There is a supervision fee of $260 and Security fee of $240. - 13% tax applied for a total fee ~$4700 for 10hrs of access to the space. - Any caterer is OK, but there is no kitchen so expect fees related to bringing in equipment. - Be aware that there are noise constraints as there are residential units above the space. The contract states noise must be low by 10PM, but when speaking verbally to coordinators they state that the music is still dance-level loud. Things like loud bass need to be turned off. - There is an on-site AV system that is included in the rental price. - Beautiful space - brick walls - art will be a surprise on day of reception or you can do a walk through before. Can remove a few pieces for free or pay an art removal fee if many need to change/move. - So far, communication has been easy and clear. - We need to re-book due to Covid-19 and were informed that prices go up by 15% every year, so this will be applied to our new 2021 booking. ($500 and something) added to the price.
We had a great visit here. Interesting collection.
A very beautiful place! I attended an engagement party and it was gorgeous! The art and the lighting added to the atmosphere! Tons of space with a rustic touch. I think all formal event should be done in a classy art studio like this! There's also plenty of parking just outside the gallery if you come early enough.

My name is Trevor and i'm an event planner. One of my clients was looking to throw a surprise birthday party for her partner. We went to 5 amazing downtown Toronto venues and Arta Gallery was the front runner for her. The space is unique and beautiful and didn't require much work to decorate because the art speaks for itself. Silvie was a pleasure to work with as were her staff. I would definitely recommend Arta Gallery to others looking for a fantastic space for an event in downtown Toronto. Thanks Silvie for helping to make this event a huge success.

I recently had the pleasure of designing and managing a corporate event at Arta Gallery which included a Project Exhibit, Reception, and Dinner. It is an absolute pleasure working with Jasmine Carriere and the Arta team, as well as Victor Bastidas of Presidential Gourmet who provided exquisite catering with his enthusiastic team. Looking forward to our next event!
