​​The floor of the Gallery is polished concrete and smooth. There will be a medium-sized shag rug that will take up a small part of floor space.​​

​​For the most part, the space will be bright but quiet. The exception to this is on Friday night where we will have a DJ, therefore the space will be quite loud.
