Venue Description

Gallery Forty-Two invites you to immerse your guests into its world-class, historic space that is unlike anything else in the city. The unique and intimate setting, coupled with exceptional works of art by preeminent artists, lends an exquisite backdrop to your special event. The structure, dating back to the 1830’s, was acquired by JHL Properties in late 2012 before undergoing extensive rehabilitation. Though modernized during the building’s construction, certain 19th century features were restored and preserved to maintain the building’s historical significance. The unique and intimate setting offers incredible ambiance with your guests surrounded by an exceptional mix of both classical and contemporary artwork.
