Discover local artists, new works each month at ‘Phone Gallery’

On view now through August is Michelle Janosky’s piece “Fountain Exploration”. Janosky is a ceramic artist and instructor at Brick Ceramic and Design Studio on Waterloo.

All levels of artists and visual art forms are on view at Phone Gallery - Cleveland's smallest gallery - from elementary school students to eminent professionals.

The Gallery, annexed to the front of Russ' Auto Care in the Waterloo Arts District across the street from Waterloo 7 Studios and Praxis Fiber Workshop, demonstrates the transformation of an otherwise vacant and underutilized "space" - in this case, an abandoned phone booth - into an inventive place for art display.

It’s a small space with a big mission – to celebrate both emerging and established local talent by providing an unique opportunity for anyone, free of charge, to exhibit a solo art show.

In Spring 2014, Phone Gallery held its inaugural exhibition and in 2016 Ali Lukacsy was awarded a Creative Workforce Fellowship on behalf of the original, thought provoking miniscule space for art display.

Phone Gallery is currently accepting applications in this open call from Greater Cleveland-based artists to exhibit in the box in a rotating 1-month long solo exhibition. There are no deadlines and applications are reviewed on a rolling basis.

Max display size: 11" w x 22" h x 6" d.

Visual 2-D and 3-D pieces are encouraged. An outlet internal to the box is available for those submissions requiring electricity.
