Events/Space Rental

Information and Guidelines for Events/Space Rental at Panza Gallery

Panza Gallery, located in Millvale, PA, a small urban community of greater Pittsburgh, was originally a vibrant dance, performance and celebration hall called Frantz Abt Leiderkranz. In 1999 Mark Panza purchased and renovated the space into an art gallery, frame shop and meeting place.

Currently, Panza Gallery has gallery/frame shop hours Wednesday 11-2 Thursday 11-5, Friday 11-2, and Saturdays 11-3:00.   The gallery area is available for rent for special events such as team meetings, conferences, workshops, classes, small musical/literary/dramatic presentations, film showings, small banquets such as showers/weddings and other celebrations.  

Standard Rates are $100.00 per hour in most cases. This is for one time events. Hourly rate is negotiable for ongoing class rental and or commission agreement.  

The gallery space is located on the lower level of the building, with 1,500 usable square feet. 



Amenities and Guidelines:

Parking: Free and on street parking is available within a few blocks, and also is near the bus line.

Stage : Hardwood stage 11x11 feet (lighting, microphone and podium available).  Amplification for musical events is not always necessary; this space has fair acoustics. We can discuss amplification and sound on an individual basis, but please be aware we are not the right venue for a very loud band.

Music: streamed through speaker system, or music source from your own device.

Seating/Capacity: Depending on the structure for your event, seating varies. We can accommodate up to 50 people banquet style with tables provided, 30 seated for viewing a stage performance (for those who do not wish to watch the performance but would like to listen there is lounge style seating on the other side of the gallery), and 75 – 100 for standing event. We do provide an eclectic collection of mid-century chairs and couches for some comfortable lounge style seating for group events.

Food and Drinks:  We have a kitchenette with a sink, refrigerator and microwave.  You are not able to cook on the premises so prepared foods work best.  Caterers have found this space appropriate for prepared foods that are cold or preheated and kept hot using catering trays.  You may use the bar surface to serve drinks or food.  Alcohol cannot be sold at your event, however you may serve it as a refreshment. You are responsible for providing all food and beverages, serving wares (plates/cups/utensils), paper products (napkins/paper towels).

Misc:  heating and air conditioning is provided, there is one unisex bathroom, there is no smoking indoors.
