Art Works Studio and Galleries




Art Works Studio and Galleries is a unique, stylish space for your wedding ceremony and reception. Located just half a mile from downtown Richmond in the historic Manchester District, Art Works is a space dedicated to providing a space for artists to create and display their artwork. This makes it the perfect creative space to hold a unique and different kind of wedding ceremony and reception. With three gallery spaces, there is definitely a space for your perfect wedding. Imagine walking down a flower petal littered aisle surrounded by stunning works of art in a modern architectural space with romantic, dim lighting to say your “I Dos.” The spaces easily transition into an inviting and warm space for a stylish and contemporary reception. With high ceilings and whimsical paper lanterns providing romantic lighting, the gallery spaces are both large and conducive to your unique wedding celebration. You and your guests will make unforgettable memories in the space—eating, drinking, and dancing the night away.
