Another gallery in a phone box

Perhaps not surprisingly, since it's such a great idea, it turns out we're not the only people who thought of using a phone box as an art gallery. Local artist Teresa Crawford-Docherty converted a phone box in Halesowen into an art gallery where it has attracted lots of local attention. Her website has more information.

The Gallery is launched!

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.

A world record? Or not?

We put in a claim to the Guinness Book of Records to see if we really are the smallest art gallery in the world. We've just heard back from them that they are unable to investigate our claim as they have limited resources which can only be used for the most 'interesting' and 'important' of claims. So we'll carry on with our claim and see if anyone tells us about a smaller art gallery!
