About
The Butter Factory Arts Centre is run by the Cooroy Future Group as an exhibition, workshop and events venue, which also includes a separate pottery studio. There is also an artist run cooperative gift shop of handmade items including pottery, jewellery, cards, and much more. The Butter Factory Arts Centre aims to provide a friendly and supportive environment to both new and established artists working in any media, and welcomes exhibition proposals from artists, collectives and curators for group or solo exhibitions in several available gallery spaces. We are committed to aiding artists in their experimentation and growth, as well as bringing exciting work to the public. The gallery strives to create a sense of community amongst both exhibitors and viewers; a place where the arts are accessible and dynamic. The Butter Factory Arts Centre is staffed and assisted by Cooroy Future Group volunteers.

Long Standing Arts Space
Nov 2020 • Solo
I came to Cooroy recently and had a walk through the Butter Factory Arts space. It was mostly for nostalgia, as I came here many times in the early 2000s for arts workshops and music gigs (local bands such as Mettaphor & Blue House) and I was happy to see it still standing & mostly unchanged. The venue still thrives with regular exhibitions, pottery workshops and guest performing artists, which is great to see.

We went to see the Spider Collection! Wonderful bejewelled, imaginative, clever spiders. Two floors have a range of ceramics, mixed media, oil paintings...all local and all terrific. Exit through thr very good Shop for fabulous gifts...again local artists. Cards, glassware, ceramics, jewellery, scarves....a treasure trove.

Quaint Gallery and Quality Artisan Shop
Jan 2020
Portraits by James Strickland amongst the best I have every viewed anywhere in the world.
“Am I Fine?” Was simply captivating,
Artisan works for sale in the shop were of a very high quality and fairly priced. Leather earrings were stunning.
Beautifully repurposed building used to great effect.
High recommend an hour or two well spent on a cloudy day - and don’t forget a quick wander over the rail bridge adjacent to reminisce about days gone by!

Great selection of artworks by local artists.
Pottery market soon on 7th December. There are also workshops there to learn how to do crafts with a shop exhibiting the work of local artists.

Great location to show case art
Oct 2019
During our visit there was a glass artists work on display, Sylvia Free. Just a wonderfully display in a setting that accompanies the works of the painter Cliff Bauer on the walls. Staff are very friendly and knowledgeable and the galleries rooms enhance the works on display. Culturally uplifting. A must visit.

It was alright, ot much to see or do. Maybe it is because we don't appreciate it. Nonetheless 30min is adequate.

A great jazz concert at a reasonable price
Jul 2019
Went to see David Bentley jazz and impro group and really enjoyed the show. It was very popular si I suggest you get there early - seats are limited. Art exhibition in the gallery was also worth a look.

A hidden gem

A small local art gallery but definitely not a butter factory! The exhibition was not to my taste but my husband loved it. Great little shop on the way out & staff were very friendly.

Title a little misleading
Jan 2019 • Family
Thought we will see the old equipment used to make butter. Instead, it’s a art gallery. The kids were a bit disappointed

Thanks for taking the time to share your impression. Did you find our display with artefacts from the time the 'Butter Factory Arts Centre', was just 'the Butter Factory'? We hope so!
