About the gallery
Telephone Booth Gallery is located in the Junction, a bourgeoning west end Toronto neighbourhood. The Gallery is named after its mascot – a vintage 1950’s Bell Canada telephone booth prominently displayed in the gallery’s front window. “The booth is a remnant from my husband’s single days,” states Gallery Director, Sharlene Rankin.
The Gallery opened just in time for the Junction Arts Festival (Sept 8 – 12, 2010). Coming from a diverse background in arts administration – Art Dealers Association of Canada (ADAC), Headwaters Arts, the Art Gallery of Peel – Sharlene Rankin is thrilled to open her own art space.
The gallery’s primary focus is to present emerging artists that each express a sense of integrity and innovation in their critical art practice. With a focus on the promotion of talented young artists, the gallery will also occasionally host invitational exhibitions of mid-career artists along with selected contemporary fine craftspeople and designers.
