I went here for a Ladies Night Out event and was blown away at the space. It's so open and airy, there's plenty of room to host all kinds of events.

We were very pleased with the recent exhibit at the Sprinkler Factory. The huge second floor space is perfect for displaying art of any size and shape. Giving space like this to contemporary artists is wonderful for the artists and for the community.

A fun and funky gallery with a relaxed atmosphere. It was fun to talk with the artists about their art. Many are just regular working folks from Worcester who are following their passion. Not much parking.

We saw some interesting works when we were there, but too much of it was just run of the mill artsy crafty junk. A few talented exhibitors did stand out, though.

The Sprinkler Factory offers gallery space, regular shows, and several ways to learn a new craft (sewing, pottery, drawing). It's a good supporter of local artists. Get on their mailing list to hear about upcoming openings.
