From the moment you see Canvas, you know you’re in for an experience that defies expectation. What once was an old crane repair station, and then an art gallery, is now a celebration of history, industry and art.
Modern lines. Douglas fir ceilings. Open floor plan.
The first work of art at Canvas is the building itself. The building dates to the mid-’50s, when it served as an old crane repair workshop and warehouse, known as, Western Bridge. Through the rest of the century the warehouse served a range of industrial businesses. At the beginning of the 21st century the building was renovated to serve as the site of a contemporary art space which named itself after the building’s original tenant.
This beautifully designed structure has been thoughtfully reimagined as a unique event venue in Seattle. Over 10,000 square feet of versatile space can be configured to suit any need from an intimate gathering that moves through several small spaces to a grand statement that utilizes the sheer volume of the place. Whether throwing a party for 10 or 400, Canvas allows you to mold the space into whatever you may dream of.
It is breathtaking in possibility and an icon of individuality. There is no other venue quite like Canvas. Now available for receptions, ceremonies, rehearsal dinners, engagement parties, showers, fundraisers and other unforgettable events.
Canvas has an upscale catering kitchen, a brand new A/V System with HD Projector, surround sound, ipod dock, Wi-Fi, Bride and Groom suites, and enough free parking for all your guests. Above all else, Canvas is the home of unique, modern and historical art, which allows your event, whatever it may be, to be truly unique.
Our goal is to make your dream event a reality.
