For October exhibition,we have teamed up with the Visual Arts Data Service (VADS), based at the University of the Creative Arts in Farnham,
This is the first of a series of planned exhibitions to bring work of national significance to the Gallery on the Green and we are delighted to be able to work with prestigious organisations such as VADS as extending the scope and remit of the gallery will appeal to a wide audience.VADS have been interested in the Gallery since it opened in July. Amy Robinson said ‘We really like the idea of exhibiting some of our postcard collection in a phone box. The intimacy and size really lend themselves to the medium.’
The new exhibition will open on Saturday 24th October.

We have now placed a guest book in the gallery and lots of comments are arriving - thankfully all good! Again, its great to see people coming to the gallery from far and wide. Art and visitors from all over the world! Not bad for so small a structure.

As a finishing touch she incorporated the word TELEPHONE using cotton wool for better visibility....and all of this spontaneously and without any supervision whatsoever.
It's a pity my photographs don't fully do justice to the piece, but well done Isabel for such an imaginative interpretation.

Our opening ceremony yesterday was attended by around 70 people - more than we've ever seen at once on The Green! The picture was taken by Mark Rand and shows the Mayor of Settle, Councillor Barbara McLernon, cutting the ribbon.

I would like to point out that the Gallery on the Green is not the only art gallery in a building designed by Giles Gilbert Scott. Bankside Power Station, now Tate Modern, was also designed by Giles Gilbert Scott.

Our first piece of contributed art has arrived. A drawing by 'H.Wilson' was left anonymously in the phone box. We are not quite ready, but it's great to know that there are already artists out there waiting to exhibit!
Plans are progressing well and we hope to hold the launch event in July. We now have a splendid ceiling, reminiscent of the Sistine Chapel. We just need to finish the installation with the back board and racking, plus a rather exciting floor (watch this space...)
