The Gallery on the Green has been open in the decommissioned red telephone box on Settle’s village green since 2009. With its claim to be “probably the smallest art gallery in the world” it shows nothing larger than postcard sized art.
Brian May & Elena Vidal are just two of a range of artists who have been delighted to create works especially to fit within the limited confines of the gallery. The gallery’s many exhibitions cover a variety of themes, ranging from children’s art, to interior
studies of writer’s rooms, winter landscapes by textile artists, poetry by Word Birds, and magical images of moths from Ottawa. Currently on show are a series of photographs taken of village crafts in Vietnam by local photographer Tessa Bunney, who joins Eamonn McCabe, and Jim des Rivieres to give the programme a truly international flavour.
The Gallery on the Green is especially delighted to host “A Village Lost and Found” as their
first 3D exhibition. It is an exhibition that will allow visitors to travel back in time to the 1850s through the optical magic of the specially-designed stereoscopic viewer that will be the main feature of the display.
Details of the exhibition can be found here, and an accompanying talk here.
