“From our first visit, we’ve felt very welcome. Over time we’ve become friends and almost family. LSG has been our art home away from home. We have been introduced to many local, African, female, and Asian artists’ work as well as the historic aspect of the art world. We cannot wait until the doors open again to public gallery showings. We miss you, Long-Sharp Gallery!” – Megan M.

“We eloped and came home wanting to throw a big wonderful party for our friends and family. Traditional “Indy wedding venues” were great but just didn’t feel like us. Then we went to a First Friday event at The Tube and fell in love. It’s such a community space and that feeling resonates not only in the building and space itself but the people who make it so amazing. From the artist who was showcasing a collection at the time of our party that I will never forget to the staff who helped us set up and by the end of the night felt like family. I can’t recommend this space or these wonderful people highly enough.” – Kate L.
