March 3rd at the Telephone Room

From the Press Release:

Please join us at the Telephone Room Gallery on Saturday, March 3 from 6-9 pm to celebrate the opening of "Zigzags, Stripes, and Shadows" by Julie Alpert, on view through March 2012.

"Stream of consciousness drawings become blueprints for how I respond to the Telephone
Room's cramped, charming, and curious architecture. Utilizing the shelves, telephone alcove, cabinet doors, and window, painted lines follow and cascade off the various surfaces transforming the once useful room into a mysterious three-dimensional painting. Cardboard figures cast ominous shadows while woodgrain contact paper is collaged to mimic the old hardwood floor. While preparation and gathering of materials happen offsite, final decisions for how to arrange and address the space are improvised, dependent on my intuition for composition and color relationships." ---Julie Alpert, February 2012.

The Telephone Room Gallery's focus is to exhibit art. We host openings where you can see the art, talk with the artists, enjoy refreshments, and it's free. Hope to see you soon.

The Telephone Room is the world's second-smallest art gallery at 12 ½ square feet. It is located in a Dutch Colonial home in Tacoma and since 1930, its sole purpose has been to house a black rotary dial telephone. Until now...

Small is Big. The Telephone Room is small, but its mission is big: to house artist-driven exhibits and programming. Big ideas in an intimate space.
