Since the launch of the gallery, we have been fortunate to receive some coverage in the local and national press. Here’s a collection of some of those articles and some others that we hope you will find interesting, together with news from the gallery.
Horbury Civic Society come on gallery visit
We were delighted to welcome members of Horbury Civic Society to the Gallery on Saturday January 20.
Horbury is a large village within the city of Wakefield and the civic society have been offered a former BT phone box which they are keen to transform. With the Yorkshire Sculpture Park, Hepworth, Henry Moore Institute and Leeds Art Gallery all more or less on the doorstep the area looks as though it could do with something artistic of a bit more modest size, hence their interest in our gallery.
If they do go ahead we have offered to consider a twinning arrangement – so look out – the world’s smallest gallery could soon get a whole lot bigger.

Moth photographer flies in for opening of exhibition
Canadian photographer Jim des Rivieres was in Settle in early July for the opening of his second exhibition at the Gallery. The exhibition of moth photographs, titled The Magnificent Moths was featured in The Craven Herald on July 6. And here is Jim at the opening of the exhibition, together with some of the images and a great poster that Jim produced promoting the show. Jim first exhibited in the Gallery in 2010. The current show runs until mid September.
Launch party for Tom Palin’s small works exhibition May 2017
Here are some of the photographs from the launch party that Sue Vickerman and friends organised for Tom Palin. They also show how we constructed a frame within the gallery for this exhibition. Thanks to all those who helped install the exhibition and once again thanks to Timberworks and the Building Supply Company for help in producing the structure.

Visitors can now make a donation towards the running costs of the gallery, which is of course run by volunteers relying for funding on donations and grants. Visitors will be pleased to see that the donation box does not take up any of our valuable exhibition space – it is to be found on the telegraph post next to the gallery.
And to prove it here is a photograph.

Winter Wonderland in the Yorkshire Post
Our Christmas exhibition 2016 was rated the Yorkshire Post’s top pick for best art in the region. We’re delighted, though should point out that the 12 days of Christmas was a previous exhibition rather than part of our current Winter Wonderland, though we are keeping our fingers crossed that it might return some day.
