Butler Gallery is a registered charity (CHY12922) and at all other times free to enter. All proceeds from the entry fee will support Butler Gallery who in turn, supports living artists and all audiences through our ongoing annual programme of exhibitions and events. Butler Gallery is 60% funded by the Arts Council and 40% funded by private fundraising and other commercial income. Without events like this and your support we would not be able to provide free tours for schools, extensive workshops for children and adults, residencies for artists, care for our collection and our exhibitions programme would be severely impacted. We thank you in advance for your support and look forward to seeing you at our Craft Fair.
