I attended a business meeting and safety seminar this week at the Artisan Works. Although I have visited this sometimes strange but always inviting place, I often forget about it.
How does one describe this huge art space? Gallery, studio, museum, special events venue....well, it's all of that and so much more. The only other words that come to mind are eclectic, huge, inspired, creative at the highest order, and fun. There is a full size 1940s truck carved from wood, paintings, sculptures and stuffed wild animals! Everything is neatly on display and displays change somewhat frequently.
Their slogan is: "Where art lives!" Art has never lived like this before.
Looking for an event location? They have in-house coordinators, two talented chefs, and more rooms than you can imagine. Check out www.artisanworks.com or visit them at 565 Blossom Road. Don't be put off by the industrial setting.
