ArtSpace Herndon is a community art gallery created and supported by art lovers in the greater Herndon area. It is located at 750 Center Street Herndon, VA. ArtSpace Herndon is a gathering place to celebrate the arts, showcasing artwork and events by local, regionally, and nationally known artists. Opening receptions and gallery talks with the artists are held for each exhibit, generally on the first Saturday of the month.
ArtSpace was first established in 2008 as a project of the Herndon Foundation for the Cultural Arts. The Foundation’s mission is to promote and support the creation of a full-scale arts center in downtown Herndon. Each year, the Artspace presents between 10 and 11 exhibits. ArtSpace and the HFCA have recently merged with the Council for the Arts of Herndon under the new name “Arts Herndon”.
All Arts Herndon programming and exhibits are made possible in part by generous contributions from the National Endowment for the Arts, Virginia Commission for the Arts, Town of Herndon, Arts Fairfax, Nelson J and Katherine Friant Post Foundation, Ruth & Hal Landers Charitable Trust, Steve and Pat Macintyre, and by generous sponsors, local businesses, supporters and volunteers.
ArtSpace continues to be used as a community gathering space for events. The gallery also includes space for classes and workshops. Entrance is free, and there is plentiful free parking. Works of art are for sale, as are small gifts. Ticketed events include music, film, and drama.
