You can rent the Chris White Gallery for your gathering. Want event space for a pop-up market, meeting, party, or bridal shower? Our art gallery is in downtown Wilmington, Delaware.
Our art on exhibit stays on the walls; otherwise, the space is yours.

Conveniently located at the corner of 7th and Shipley Streets in Wilmington, Delaware, the gallery is a short block from Market Street. The gallery is available for rent every day of the week from 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. as our schedule allows. Occupancy is limited to 99 people on two levels. Click here to see the floor plans.
We have on-going exhibits, so any event must leave the art in place untouched. Usually art is only on the walls but occasionally 3-dimensional work is on pedestals or otherwise taking up floor space. Renters are expected to respect the art and, hopefully, enjoy it.
If you are interested in a rental, please contact us. You will be asked to complete a rental contract and make a rental deposit of $25. No rental is confirmed until these last steps are complete. Click here to see our current calendar of events.
