Other top tips for hosting an event at an art gallery
– Be sure to make proper use of all the art. Don’t hide it away behind marketing material or banners. Instead, keep it on show and embrace the surroundings of the room.
– Consider lighting. The lighting you go for will really set the scene. Try to keep things well lit, but also create a nice sense of ambiance of peace by not overdoing it.
– Find out how far you can go! Speak to the venue owner and make sure you’re allowed to do everything you need. Such as eating or drinking.
– Think practicality regarding space. You and your guests don’t want to feel hemmed in like sheep, so make sure there’s still plenty of room for everyone.
– Of course, leave time to admire the surroundings. Both before and after the event, make sure there is plenty of time for guests to admire the pieces in the gallery.
