An intimate art gallery wedding, steeped in the colors of giant modern art canvases gracing the walls of a museum space that could be Brooklyn or Soho. Or it could be off a country road in Gardiner, Ulster County, where New York City bred artist DM Weil will host your small event in her unique Hudson Valley gallery space.
DM Weil, who was raised in the Bronx, is known for her large, colorful and — some might say — whimsical, acrylic canvases. She established her Gardiner gallery in 2004 and also works in a nearby studio on the same property.
The gallery itself is comprised of two areas: a welcome area that also serves as an office and gift shop, and the gallery’s main space which is where events unfold.
The reception/gift shop area is 800 square feet and can be used as a welcoming station, or as a cocktail hour space, or as a place where guests can mill about and lounge on a large Italian leather couch.
The gallery main space provides 2400 square feet for wedding receptions, rehearsal dinners, or any other small event with up to approximately 75 guests. Ceilings are 14 feet high giving the space a wide open, airy atmosphere. A 1911 Grotrien Steinweg grand piano is available for use should you wish to hire a pianist for live music (or if your guests get the urge to tinkle the ivories).
Upon request, DM Weil is also happy to hang works from her collection for specific events where color coordination with decor is a must.
The gallery also has a number of furnishings available: stylish couches, a bench, a bar, and tables for about 20 people.
Furnishing for a larger number of guests must be brought in from outside. Couples renting the gallery are responsible for their own caterer and also port-a-potties.
Event space rentals start at $500. For more information, use the links and contact info below.
