Gallery Space & Amenities

The Spaceworks gallery sits on the corner of 11th and Commerce in downtown Tacoma with large windows facing both streets. The space is approximately 1,000 square feet, with approximately 150 feet of wall space for hanging art. In addition, there is a separate video room (100 sq. ft.) equipped with projector and speakers that serves well for showcasing video work and/or installation.

The gallery has great natural light during most open hours, with overhead florescent bulbs during dark hours. Spaceworks has numerous clamp lights available with floods and spots to add additional custom lighting. There are no walls that receive direct sunlight, and very little floor space that receives direct sunlight, so artwork is well protected.

Video Room
The gallery has a video room (approx 100 sq. ft.) with a projector, DVD player, and speakers. This room may be used to display video work that can run on loop throughout the gallery hours. The room also works well for installation art, or could be used for additional wall space to hang art.

Pedestals & Vitrines
The gallery has 4 white box pedestals (various sizes), one white box platform (3ft x 4ft x 1ft), 6 round burnt wood (with matte coating) pedestals (varied from 14-18 inch diameter), 2 black square tables (3ft x 3ft) that are suited for display, and an assortment of plexi-glass vitrines.

Vinyl Lettering
The gallery can provide custom vinyl letters for the exhibit title, subtitle, and short exhibit statement.

Touch up paint of the matching white color will be provided by the gallery. If artist/curator chooses to paint or draw a large area directly on the wall, they will have to purchase the matching white color and paint over their piece at the end of the exhibit. The gallery will begin white before each show, and must return to white after each show.

The gallery has a step ladder, medium ladder, and tall ladder, along with an assortment of other basic tools. Hanging or installation hardware is the responsibility of the artist or curator.
