Iconic Phone Booth Hosts Pop-Up Art Exhibits [Pics]
The Gallery On The Green is a tiny public art gallery located inside one of the UK’s famed red phone boxes.
Gallery On The Green is a public art gallery located inside a red phone box in Settle, North Yorkshire in the UK. The tiny gallery is open 24/7 and boasts that it is “filled to capacity at least twice a day!”.
The phone box was purchased by Settle Town Council in early 2009 under the BT ‘Adopt a Kiosk’ scheme. The phone was removed and a community art gallery was set up inside.
The bright red box features an illuminated panel with the word ‘Gallery’ that attracts visitors to the artworks. Since opening, over twenty exhibitions have been hosted inside.
Creative Review reports that last month, photographer Fleur Olby showcased ‘Green on White’, a series of flower photographs on white backgrounds selected from her book Fleur: Plant Portraits, shown in postcard format. On the small floor of the gallery, Olby planted white hyacinths in a cushion of moss.
The gallery is currently showing food writer and photographer Joan Ransley’s work, which captures the essence of Yorkshire food and artisan food producers with images gathered from across the region. Click through to see images of the Gallery On The Green:
