The name “Ice House Gallery” is derived from the history of the building - it originally served as cold storage for massive blocks of ice set to be distributed throughout the surrounding area. Though the interior has been totally renovated, the high ceilings and enormous windows perfectly suit this new venture. Art buyers and admirers alike are sure to appreciate the artworks displayed in our aesthetically unique space.
