The former Cowwarr Butter Factory built in 1918 is architecturally significant as a rare example of an industrial building employing Federation Arts & Crafts design traditions. Through the passion of owner/directors Carolyn Crossley and Clive Murray-White the Cowwarr Art Space has delivered a program for over 20 years of international and inter-regional residencies and exhibitions. Set in park like grounds in the small community of Cowwarr in the heart of Gippsland Victoria adjoining the Gippsland Plains Rail Trail.

We were so glad to have made this slight detour. The Old Butter Factory is Heritage-listed and makes a great art space for both temporary and permanent exhibits. The Clive Murray-White sculptures, exhibited inside and in the garden, emerge beautifully from the rough Australian marble,...More
