Hi Everyone! This was the perfect backdrop for our modern Abstract Resin Workshop “@abstractresintoronto” Remote Gallery is an automated turn key experience for anyone looking for a sleek “blank canvas” intimate space to setup their Brand, Comapny/Client meeting Gallery, or Workshop event. There are tables and chairs for 20, The washroom is insite, wifi, a couple nice pillar stands (that came in handy)! And lots of outlets for your AV. *You can see some video of our event(s) on our instagram if you want to get a better sense of this space too. Janet fielded all questions and made check in/out simple and we had zero issues. They have a kit onsite for you to repair any holes from hanging art and the walls are vibrant fresh white (so there is a high standard of “clean” that they uphold). There is street parking as well as a loblaws parking (entrance right beside the entrance on Richmond street) which is sooo handy for your customers! Book with confidence this space is ideal! Thank you Janet for having us and we hope to be in the space again soon!
