as seen in City Arts, April 2009

Congratulations to us: the April 2009 issue of Tacoma City Arts magazine features a quarter page blurb on the Telephone Room Gallery in "City Seen"! (see page 7)

"Operator? Art, Please
The world's second-smallest art gallery, the Telephone Room, has a big mission: artist-driven exhibits and programming that spark more personal conversations between artists and the public. Located in a private 1930s home, this twelve-square-foot gallery boasts a rotary phone with a cool vintage ring. Founders Heide Fernandez-Llamazares, Marty Gengenbach and Ellen Ito hope the nontraditional space will inspire artists to try something new or explore site-specific ideas. Sixteen artists participated in Hello, the inaugural exhibit, which runs through April 15. For upcoming Shrinky Dink-making with Jessica Bender, contact"

  1. Reading this post makes me realize a couple of things - 1. that I should make time to explore Tacoma and 2. that the NW is subtle in its cutting edge. Thank you!

  2. Sounds like a cool place to visit! I am a designer and love to visit interesting exhibitions and explore new things :) Hopefully I can get there- do they have a lot of exhibitions?

  3. The Telephone Room usually has a new exhibition every month and that includes an open house on the first Wednesday evening of the month. We're always viewable by appointment by emailing

    But we recommend that you check this blog for the latest info (see right-hand column, top).
