Attended son and daughter in law’s wedding ceremony and reception at the art gallery. This is a hidden gem for medium sized venue. Service staff were excellent and very attentive. Food was well presented, hot and excellent tasting.

I lived in Hamilton for 19 years and it wasn't until I attended a wedding there that I finally visited the art gallery. It was beautiful, clean, staff were incredible. I would go back again and again.
