What once was an old crane repair station, and then an art gallery, is now a celebration of history, industry and art.
Modern lines. Soaring Douglas fir ceilings. Open floor plan.
This beautifully designed structure has been thoughtfully reimagined as a unique event venue in Seattle. Over 10,000 square feet of versatile space can be configured to suit any need from an intimate gathering that moves through several small spaces to a grand statement that utilizes the sheer volume of the place. Canvas’ interiors and finishes make it the perfect palette to “paint” an event just the way you desire.
Canvas offers an upscale catering kitchen, a brand new A/V System with HD Projector, surround sound, iPod dock, Wi-Fi, Bride and Groom suites, and ample free parking for your visitors. Guests will also get to enjoy the amazing art collection on display at Canvas.
It is breathtaking in possibility and an icon of individuality. There is no other venue quite like Canvas. Now available for weddings, receptions, ceremonies, rehearsal dinners, engagement parties, showers, fundraisers, corporate meetings and other unforgettable events.
Canvas’ rich history makes even the building itself a true work of art! The building dates back to the mid-’50s, when it served as the workshop and warehouse of Western Bridge, a general contractor in Seattle. Through the rest of the century the building was home to a range of industrial businesses. At the beginning of the 21st century the building was re-imagined and renovated by Roy McMakin and Domestic Architecture to serve as a contemporary art space, named after the building’s original tenant. Inside, the building wove private and public spaces in an interlocking composition, offering galleries in a range of scales to suit art in various media.
While operating as an art space, Western Bridge was home to many events and celebrations. Designed to bring people together, Western Bridge became a place of culture, togetherness and thought.
Canvas has expanded on the idea of Western Bridge and has progressed into an ideal event venue that still celebrates art, togetherness and family. Canvas is a family affair. Owned and operated by the True family of Seattle, Canvas serves clients with first-class, hands-on, genuine care. Our goal is to make your dream event a reality.
Advice to couples in selecting a Venue space?
First, make a list of your venue essentials - location, ideal time of year, projected guest list size… your basic wish list.
Second, it’s early, but go ahead and draft a realistic estimated budget.
Next, do some research on event spaces in your zip code(s) of choice and narrow down your options.
Then, tour a handful of venues. Appointments are usually required and need to be booked in advance.
Since your venue is one of the very first wedding planning boxes that you must check, make sure the venue is versatile and offers flexibility to adapt to your wedding desires and the planning progresses.
Lastly, ask yourself if this venue coincides with your style and overall event vision. What’s important to you two? Can you work with this space to make it your own? Listen to your instincts.

Get ready for the industrial luxe metallic era.
We’ve seen a lot of pretty burlap and gorgeous rustic wedding wedding ideas over the last few years, and we still love them, but we predict couples will be looking for something slightly different in 2017. Something a little louder. A bit more attitude. An edgy vibe.
We forecast industrial modern chic will be the fiercest wedding look in 2017 giving off contemporary urban airs! Think muted brushed metals, coppers and rose gold combined with neutrals as your color palette. Then combine those metallics with industrial and modern touches to set the stage for a fashionable yet classy feel. Or take it to the edge by incorporating rough gemstones too for a look that is glamorous but not too ‘done’. Bring on the metallic takeover!
Above all else, Canvas is the home of unique, modern and historical art, which allows your event, whatever it may be, to be truly unique. You’re invited to come see for yourself the beauty that Canvas offers.
