Rent our gallery and/or studio space or partner with Common Street Arts on an event

Common Street Arts is happy to partner with other organizations to present programs. We also rent our gallery and/or studio space to non-profit groups and corporate or private parties. Our gallery space and  studio are both available for gatherings of most any variety, yet in general, we do not rent our space for public events (i.e., you cannot pay to have an art exhibition here).

Common Street Arts is a beautiful and convenient location to host a celebration or gathering. We are within minutes walking distance from parking at both Head of Falls and the Concourse, and our doors open onto Castonguay Square and Main Street.

When inquiring, please provide as much of the following information as possible:

  • your name, your organization’s name
  • what the event is
  • who your audience/attendees/guests will be
  • is it open to the public and is there a fee
  • when do you wish to have the event (date, time, etc.) and can your date be flexible
  • what equipment would your event require (tables, chairs, projector, etc.)
  • any other details you can provide

Rates will depend on space, time, equipment, and staff requirements. Please keep in mind that rentals do not include the wall space and the current exhibition will remain on the walls during your gathering.

See our membership page to learn about how you could receive discounted rental rates by becoming a Leadership  or Circle Member.
