About The Joseph Saxton Gallery of Photography

Open dates for 2020 and 2021. Please call now for availability! The Joseph Saxton Gallery of Photography provides a unique setting for special events of all kinds, including wedding ceremonies and receptions, rehearsal dinners, anniversary parties, fundraisers, business gatherings and a variety of other social occasions. Being that the space is primarily an art gallery, the venue comes beautifully decorated with photographs taken by world-class artists including Steve McCurry, Edward Weston, Mary Ellen Mark and others. Our rooms are sizable, giving the renter access to a combined space, totaling over 7,200 square feet. Parking is provided just across the street from the gallery, which is unusual for a downtown location, leaving no concerns as to whether or not you or your guests will find a lot nearby to park your vehicles. Because we are not a typical rental facility, we provide customized, personalized service, at a very affordable rate. We are flexible to accommodate the needs of our guests and take pride in our outstanding service. We also help with maintaining a budget by giving you ultimate control over your event, leaving the choice of caterers and vendors in your hands, as we have no exclusive affiliation with anyone. Although we supply guidance and assist you by making recommendations, the choice is yours. Be sure to inquire about our current alcohol list. Keeping the needs of your selected caterer and service providers is important to us as well. Loading and unloading of equipment is made easy, with access to our garage through a large, automatic door, at the rear entrance of the gallery. The garage serves as a convenient staging area for the preparation of food. The caterers have access to the venue's kitchenette as well, with its commercial-sized, three-compartment sink and hand sink. Please call Wednesday through Saturday, noon to 5:00 p.m., for inquiries or to schedule a consultation. We look forward to helping you create a memorable event. Maria Hadjian, Event Coordinator/Gallery Manager

Excellent - An Eventective User from Canton, Ohio

The gallery is a beautiful location for a wedding ceremony and/or reception. My husband and I loved the stunning photos on the walls and the chandeliers as well. We were so impressed by the cleanliness of the gallery and their efforts to recycle is admirable. The gallery manager, Maria Hadjian, worked closely with my family and me to create the best day we’ve had! Maria, the event coordinator for the location, kept consistent communication and was very helpful with all pertaining details. We had a wonderful reception.
