love for the gallery

We were thrilled to have our wedding reception at Candita Clayton’s georgeous Gallery. Candita was available, warm and thoughtful from the beginning process of planning to the final touches of hosting the event in the space. She helped us envision our reception, with a clear understanding of how we hoped the night would unfold. We were so happy to welcome our guests to the gallery and celebrate our love, and our love of art with them on our wedding day. Candita recommended the work of some outstanding artists to add our registry, and the gallery exhibition on the night of our reception perfectly accented the event. The reception atmosphere was light, warm and swanky, the perfect combination of an elegant space with Candita’s precise eye and generous spirit.

I found the experience of working with Candita and her team to be professional, pleasant and smooth. Candita was just impeccable. The space looked absolutely beautiful. I loved all the natural light and the artistic feel. She arranged to have all the tables and chairs we needed and made sure they added a touch to the decor and ambience. The food was well presented and delicious! I would recommend Candita Clayton Gallery to people who are looking for a space to hold an event whether it’s a workshop, a small wedding, a photoshoot! If you are looking for a place to make you and your guest feel at home, in an eclectic yet timeless gallery, Candita Clayton Gallery is your place!
My goal was to encourage women to feel welcomed as individuals and leave as a tightly connected group. Having us gather amid original art was a beautiful way to silently encourage that spirit of co-creation.

Working with Candita and her team was seamless and serious business with a lovely, lighthearted touch. They went out of their way to help us configure the space for maximum impact, and the final styling of our event was truly Instagram-worthy.

I’ve searched statewide for years looking for a truly unique venue, and have found it in Candita Clayton Gallery. My guests gave us a 100% “loved it” rating, and I know the space contributed to our success. For any event producer, company, or individual seeking to deliver an elevated and elegant experience, CCG is simply unmatched.

I love hosting Blooming Artisan events at Candita Clayton’s Gallery. It’s a beautiful and inspirational venue. The bright, open, airy space along with the rotating art exhibits, makes the gallery a special and unique experience for guests. Candita Clayton’s Gallery has been a wonderful place to host events. I’m looking forward to using the venue again!
