It’s no surprise that artists are a resilient, creative bunch, so when it was announced that Kent would be plunged into Tier 3, Nucleus Arts did not disappoint. After the initial head-in-hands-stance they took at the news of The Halpern Gallery Fair being cancelled, artists Rachel and Vanessa saw an opportunity to turn the red BT telephone box outside their studios into a temporary art gallery.
During December the red BT telephone box will be decked out with art for everyone to enjoy and if a particular piece catches your eye then you’re welcome to take it as a gift from the artist. All they are asking in return is a follow and shout-out on social media and a donation to Nucleus Arts, the charity that makes all this possible.
Genevieve Tulberg, Nucleus Arts Halpern Gallery Manager said: "This act of creative generosity to the community is entirely typical of our artists - we couldn't be prouder of them".
The BT phone box can be found between the Guild Hall Museum and Nucleus Arts Conservancy Building. If visiting please keep to social distancing guidelines.
If you are an artist who would like to gift work to the gallery then please get in touch via the contact page
