It has 145 linear feet of wall space within 300 square feet. Additional wall space is available adjacent to the gallery. Depending on the size of the work, you may expect to hang up to 60 pieces.
The Upstairs Gallery ("Red Brick Gallery") maintains the factory ambiance with both brick and finished walls. Track lighting is used in this gallery.
It has 120 linear feet of wall space within 560 square feet. Depending on the size the works, it usually displays between 25 and 50 two-dimensional pieces.
Future Plans: The ART247 complex houses additional original factory space of the Western Block Company including the Western Block Co Forgery. Future renovation plans include renovating the original ~6,840 square feet, 2+ story Forgery to house the Main Gallery of ART247 while preserving details and the historic significance of the original Western Block Co. These renovations will allow us to provide exhibits of large scale works of art, large exhibitions, and multiple exhibition setups. Implementation of state of the art renovations will also allow us to additionally accommodate exhibitions of Master works of Art for our Greater Niagara Community.
RESERVE A GALLERY
Current galleries rent for a very reasonable rate. They can be rented separately or together for larger shows. There is a commission fee on sales. We will promote your show with a press release to local venues. We will attend your show opening and assist you in any way we can. Mailings and other services are available for an additional fee. A portfolio of work must be provided for review prior to receiving acceptance to hold a gallery show. Groups may apply together for jointly held shows. Please call 716-404-9884 for more information or to rent a gallery or contact h.grimmer@theART247.com
