Opening this Friday at the Telephone Room Gallery, a.k.a. the world’s second-smallest gallery, is Tacoma painter and lettering artist Chris Sharp. “I don’t hate anyone” opens with an artist reception from 6-9 p.m. August 6, and features Sharp’s recent painting and letterpress.

Sharp, the inaugural winner of the Greater Tacoma Foundation’s art award, is a well-known signpainter around Tacoma (Satellite Coffee, Infinite Soups, and The Rosewood Cafe, among others). He’s also shown solo at Mineral, the Iron Gallery at UWT and the Pacific Lutheran University Gallery.

The Telephone Gallery is a tiny, 12 ½ square foot room in an old Dutch Colonial home in Tacoma’s North End. For over a year now the owners have used it to house artist-driven exhibits and programming, and the receptions always feel more like a house party than a staid gallery. On the cards for Friday’s opening is the chance to make whirligigs with Sharp.

“I don’t hate anyone” runs through Aug. 29, open 6-9 p.m. Friday and by appointment. The Telephone Room is at 3710 N. 7th St., Tacoma. thetelephoneroom@gmail.com, www.thetelephoneroom.blogspot.com
