 The historic Challenge Butter building, built in 1939, was given new life in 2006. The renovation that took nearly a year to complete became the impressive Creamery Arts Center. Visitors can enter the custom made front doors and explore the open floor plan which displays the works of over 60 local artists and authors. We offer paintings, photography, woodworking, pottery, fiber arts, jewelry, leather, bronze and stone sculpture, glass, greeting cards, books and more. And yes, we even serve ice cream!


The second Friday of every month, from 6~8 pm, the Creamery hosts an opening reception for its most current art exhibit. This gala event is free to the public and features refreshments, a cash wine and beer bar, great art, and excellent company. Don’t miss our spectacular bathrooms, which were designed and created by two of our artists.
