April 2019

I recently hosted a corporate event at Arta Gallery, and I could not be more pleased with the result. The space is very beautiful. Rustic but sophisticated and the colorful art on the wall was a great touch. Mariaye and Samantha were a pleasure to work with during the planning stages and on the day of the event. They helped with the set up and were attentive to all our needs and requests throughout the day. Our whole team and clients were very impressed with the venue and the vibe of the gallery. If you’re looking for something different - not just your typical corporate event, I highly recommend Arta. I’m definitely looking forward to working with them again in the future.

We used Arta for a fundraiser in early 2019, and had a fantastic experience! The on-site coordinators were incredibly helpful, accommodating our needs leading up to our event and then very helpful on the day of. They gave us suggestions for layouts and made sure we used the space most effectively. I won't hesitate to consider hosting here again.

The space is beautiful, however be very careful with the information given.

We used Arta Gallery as our wedding venue for our reception. The space looks great and gives the rustic, artsy atmosphere we were looking for. Contract was followed and venue is a bargain based on the distillery district location.

When our wedding planner and decorator showed up, they were told the person who we had 8 months of contact with quit. This was fine, however the venue never contacted us to update us on the change. The previous venue contact had months of conversations and meetings which was not provided to those taking over. We had provided a floor plan and when the furniture rentals came in and they did not know where to setup. Lucky our planner and designer showed up early to direct.

The most disappointing was before we committed to booking the venue we discussed the type of art being displayed. They told us it is mostly abstract. We also asked if there are ever any NUDE installments as we have children on our guest list. We were told they do not put up nude art in their public galleries. On the day I got a call from my planner telling me there is nude art all over the wall. This was incredibly frustrating. We needed it down. We requested and they wanted to charge us hundreds of dollars to take it down before the guest arrived. Thank goodness for my planner and designer as they were aware of our vision and argued to take it down at no cost.

The venue was beautiful and so was our wedding, however this venue is poorly managed and are lacking communication to clients spending thousands of dollars to use their space.

Dear Darren and Michelle,

Thank you for providing a review of our venue. We would appreciate the opportunity to provide further context for potential patrons.

Unfortunately, we are not at liberty to discuss staffing changes with our clients. On the evening of your event, we did inform the team that we had undergone recent staffing changes. We have now implemented a system to connect with clients prior to their event to ensure that everyone has accurate information about how the event will run. Communication is key to any event planning process.

Regarding the floorplan and setup, we provide supervision and general assistance during event setup. It is expected that clients are present or provide a team to setup their event during the agreed upon time. These conditions are outlined in the events contract.

Apologies if anyone had been offended by the artwork on display. As our exhibitions change frequently, we urge all clients to visit the Gallery a few days prior to their event to view the current exhibition. The moment your florist informed us that some of the displayed artworks would be disliked by guests, we happily offered to take the pieces down free of charge. This reason for art removal would be honoured for future patrons of Arta Gallery.

We value the business and relationships formed through these wonderful events and thank you for your feedback. This response has enabled our team to look inwards and make necessary changes to our daily procedures. We hope that you will return to Arta Gallery in the future.

Warm regards,
the Events Team

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!
