A hidden gem
Artesano Gallery began as a historic space located underneath the bridge in Manayunk (right outside of Philadelphia). Many years ago, it was a vacant warehouse and completely untouched. One day, the founders of Artesano Gallery came across the location and immediately saw the experiences that could be created here. They wanted others to see the unique beauty in the location so they decided to renovate and restore it. After many months of planning and building, the historic property was turned into an eclectic Art Gallery – Artesano Gallery was born.
Over the next few years, many of the people who visited the gallery kept saying that they would love to rent the space out for their wedding. One day, the owners finally gave in and decided to take a leap of faith. They turned the art gallery into a wedding venue and the rest is history.
Since the historic space was originally turned into an art gallery, this is where the name of Artesano Gallery comes from. Even if we are no longer a formal gallery, you will still see many pieces of art hanging on the walls and you will even see sculptures outside when you come visit.
Artesano Gallery is located in the heart of Manayunk, one of the oldest towns in Philadelphia. Our historic early 1900's sprawling warehouse offers a unique, spacious 21,000 square foot loft style space with convenient parking right across the street. As you enter through our 17 foot glass facade you will immediately be surrounded by architectural art masterpieces, white marble tiled floors, a magnificent green wall and a grand staircase.
