A functional dairy factory has been transformed into a striking workable art gallery. We enjoyed the diverse exhibits and even were enticed to buy an eyecatching large glass wall hanging. Very unusual.I also bought Christmas gifts from the high quality gallery shop.

Beautiful gallery, with well set out resources and art work. Well worth a visit. Take a stroll across the creek to visit the excellent old saw mill display.

A good local community art facility, always changing with some interesting works. The art store is also a welcome addition with some good local work at reasonable prices.
