Gallery on wheels

gallery on wheelsCatherine Jones has a perfectly good horse box and lives in the ideal setting for keeping a pony or two, but her horse box has only one purpose – a pop up gallery.

Thinking outside (or in fact inside) the box, Catherine has recently used the box as the “Gallery at the end of the lane” and showcased her colleagues sketches and paintings.

The official launch of the gallery will be on 15th and 16th September when artists that are up and coming, including Ed Bowden will be showcasing their work.

“We originally got the horse box as we intended to keep sheep but it has been sitting there for three years doing nothing. One day I had the idea of turning it into an art gallery and I couldn’t let the thought go.

I think all art – including music and drama – is relevant to modern life, but unless people can access it, how can it be relevant to them? We live along the Cotswold Way where people ride their horses, walk their dogs and the thought of having something like this, which they can pop into, is making art accessible where people are,” explained Catherine who intends to have a new exhibition for two days every month.”
