Pictures from Public Collections

For October exhibition,we have teamed up with the Visual Arts Data Service (VADS), based at the University of the Creative Arts in Farnham, Surrey. Working collaboratively with Amy Robinson of VADs, Gallery on the Green curator Julie Sobczak has made a wide-ranging selection of images which have been specially printed for the exhibition. Drawing on the collections as diverse as the Imperial War Museum, the London College of Fashion, and Manchester Metropolitan University, the exhibition includes examples of Victorian music covers, posters of conflict, fashion photographs, woodcuts and collages.

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.
