The former warehouse space houses numerous studios and galleries. We enjoyed wandering around and seeing such a variety of media. Only a few were open the morning we visited, but we still managed to make some purchases.

There are three floors of artists so go inside and explore. You are likely to find more than one style of interest to you or your group. It's an old warehouse that is now art studios. Funky building but fun to see.

Each gallery keeps its own hours. The main entrance is open till about 8pm, later if there is a reception. Not sure of the morning opening but I have been there as early as 10am. Hope that helps.
