Visual Arts Gallery:
This room has a floor area of 483 sq. ft. with 8′ x 91′ running feet. We have an assortment of various sized plinths as well as 6 easels to use as displays. The Theatre and Gallery are separated by a locking door and can be rented together for multi-purpose functions.
This workshop space is on the ground floor and has 4 large workbenches, plenty of counter space, shelves, a utility sink, as well as a round board table. Although the room has been used for crafts, art, and makers workshops since 1980, art supplies and tools are not included in the rental fee. The workshop is available by the day, the hour, or via a monthly membership fee ($75.00) for those who need workshop/making space on an ongoing basis. There is storage space via Rubber-made bins for makers to store their materials, if needed.
The kitchenette, located on the 2nd floor, is available to all users. It’s not suitable for full cooking, but can be useful for keeping pre-cooked foods warm, tea/coffee service, and fridge storage.
This large and attractive iconic building still retains many of its original heritage features. It stands in a prominent position at the centre of the picturesque Village of Silverton.
