THE GALLERY ON THE GREEN, SETTLE
Probably the world’s smallest art gallery

FOCUS ON PHONES

The former BT telephone box, which now houses the Gallery on the Green in Settle, has featured many different exhibits over the years – some exotic, some quaint and some extraordinary – but this month it returns to its origins when the focus is on phones.

Mobiles, landlines, phone boxes, phone lines, puns and jokes and all sorts of pictures of telephones, real and imaginary form the basis of Settle Photographic Group’s exhibition that opens on 14 January.

All the work is new and has been made at a scale that works in the tiniest of exhibition spaces that constitutes what is probably the world’s smallest art gallery.

Settle Photographic Group is already well-known in the town for the annual Photo Trail, when photos are displayed in shop windows for several weeks and then go on to the annual exhibition in Clapham Village Hall at the end of the summer.

SPG is a friendly and supportive local society for amateur photographers, offering a warm welcome to any prospective member irrespective of their experience, age, skill level or specific interest. The aim is to help every member develop their photographic skills through a varied programme of talks, demonstrations, discussions, challenges, online galleries, outings and exhibitions. Members share their knowledge about a huge range of cameras, photographic accessories and software.

Members meet at 7.30pm throughout the year on the 3rd Monday of the month at Townhead Court in Settle (opposite the Medical Centre) with additional meetings on the 1st Monday of the month from October to April. Details of forthcoming meetings and further information about the Settle Photographic Group can be found at www.settlephotos.org and on the ‘Settle Photographic Group’ Facebook page. Visitors are welcome to come along to any meeting.

The exhibition opens on 14 January and runs 12 March.

More information about Settle’s Gallery on the Green and how to find it can be obtained from www.galleryonthegreen.org.uk, the local Tourist Information Centre or on the Tourist information website.
