Every caravan enthusiast knows that Sprite caravans are built to last, but this fifty year old caravan has been given a new lease of life as a touring art gallery.
Converted by contemporary gallery Duckett and Jeffreys, this tiny tourer will be heading off on a regional tour over the next couple of weeks, starting at the Ryedale Folk Museum in Yorkshire on September 16th.
The purpose of the tour is to draw attention to the work of the gallery's 23 local artists, including painters, sculptors, felt-makers, ceramicists, print makers and even a blacksmith.
Stef Mitchell, founding artist at Duckett and Jeffreys, who will be on the tour, said: "We aim to show artists that are brave, confident and imaginative."
The 11-venue tour, featuring this 1960s Sprite caravan, will continue until October 16th with a final stop-off at the Inspired By Gallery in Danby.
