arc yinnar is an artist run collective which celebrates thirty years of support to and by artists in regional Victoria. arc has a vibrant community presence within a rural community, with a superb gallery, music venue, studio spaces for artists, and professional arts resource services.
arc's story began in 1982 when the Art Resource Collective was established as a fledgling group of artists determined to renovate the disused Yinnar Butter Factory.
arc provides both a focus for creative talent in the LATROBE CITY and environs, and a stepping stone to the wider world of contemporary art and career development.
Arc, an artist-run, non-profit organisation today houses its administration base, a superb large gallery, retail outlet, self-contained artist studios and public access areas for printmaking, ceramics, metalwork, photography, painting, drawing, theatre and music venue and professional arts resource services within the reinvigorated factory building, set between paddocks, the Yinnar sustainable garden and a short main street.
