Lots of people think that an art gallery is nothing more than an assembly of paintings and other works all gathered together in one room. While that is certainly one aspect of a gallery, there is so much more that goes into setting one up. You might have seen galleries either in person or on television or the internet if you get your service through places like www.t1internet.net. There is much more involved in setting up a gallery than hanging a few paintings and we have created a short list of tips to help you get your gallery going.
1. Brainstorm – develop a theme that you want to define your gallery. It doesn’t have to be something epic or profound but it should be meaningful to you. This theme will be what unites all your work.
2. Pick and choose – now that you have a theme, go through your works and decide which ones are the best representations of your creativity and talent.
3. Regroup – if the theme you are going for doesn’t quite match the work you have chosen, then think about it. Find a way to make it work through some deeper meaning or try to find a new theme.
4. Venue – find a space to rent out or a museum to host your gallery. The venue should reflect the theme in some way to further enhance your message.
5. Pitch – get the theme and your motivation down on paper and get ready to sell your idea to both the gallery host and the public.
