“Great variety of artists”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2013

This is a great place to see (and buy) the creations from a variety of locals artisans from painters to woodworkers to potters and even a person who works with pewter, and more. If you're there at the right time, you can even talk to some of the artisans about their work. Make sure you walk through both levels of the building and down the hallways so you see everyone and everything.

“Enjoyable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2013

My kids art teacher does a show there every year for our school. My children are so proud to see their work in the same building as other local artists.

I love the area artists and music.

“Don't Miss it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 January 2013

Box Factory for the Arts is an art gallery that is located in an old factory building that used to produce boxes. It is now a beautiful gallery that houses a gift shop, working artists' studios that are open for visiting and purchasing, and school art exhibitions are also held here. Writing groups meet here, there is a small collection of books, an open mic night, and a small area for refreshments. I love going here and recommend it.

“always interesting and changing”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2012

The Box Factory for the Arts is a multi-use arts center that includes galleries, artist's studios, a small cafe, a small gift shop and a stage. The exhibits in the galleries change every six weeks so that visiting more than once per year is a treat. The artist's studios are open when the artist is present, which can be tricky during the summer art fair schedule, but most are very encouraging to visitors and willing to share information about their art and process. Exhibited art includes sculpture, glass, textiles, watercolors, oils, etc. A nice variety. There are some parking spaces adjacent to the building and more across the street.
