For artists, having an online gallery is the easiest way to share your pieces. Here are some tips on how you can showcase your work better.
In today’s world, there are so many different ways of showing your art work. Online galleries abound and are usually an easy and budget-friendly way for art enthusiasts and casual visitors to access your work. Make your gallery more impressive with these tips:
1. Highlight Your Major Works
As every artist and enthusiast knows, not all art works are created equal. When inspiration strikes, an artist can produce great works that stand as the major highlights of their collection. Since major works are a step above the rest, they should be highlighted in your site and be featured in a striking section.

2. Display Collections Using Crisp Layouts
Collections of work can be displayed best when the gallery layout you use is clean and without too many frills. This will allow each piece to speak for itself so visitors would be able to focus on the important details.
3. Use Videos for Virtual Walkthroughs
Even if videos are not your medium of choice, you can make good use of them to show montages of your work or have a walk through of physical exhibits. This way, your art can feel more tangible to your visitors no matter where they are.
