:the mezzanine: gallery space

The upstairs space of the Old Butter Factory : the mezzanine : has a reverence and luminosity that has to experienced to be truly understood. Taking a fresh approach to displaying fine art, the beautiful pared back walls of the space form a raw and earthy backdrop to the art. Stunning windows flood the space with natural light, its softness a beautiful compliment to the subject matter. The mesmerizing energy from downstairs sets the mood and provides the perfect entry point.
