Welcome to Buttery
Our shows are virtual so that you can see them whenever and wherever.
Who we are
The Buttery virtual gallery was set up by Lewis Buttery in 2020, in response to the COVID pandemic.
It's an idea that he had been thinking about for a couple of years beforehand though, because it takes far less privilege to visit a virtual exhibition than a physical one.
The UK art scene for example is concentrated in London, in the culture of the upper-classes, straight people, white people, and men. Buttery goes a ways to breaking down that barrier to entry.
We rely on a 'pay what you feel' system for entry to our exhibitions, which ensures that they stay open to all.
