My designer is 95% finished what e has to do, and the web developer is making the whole thing work. My job is to think about what should be written and how.
So to start with, I need to ask - Is my online 'gallery' actually a gallery at all, or is it just an online store that sells art?
My old friend Wikipedia tells me that:
An art gallery or art museum is a space for the exhibition of art, usually visual art. Paintings are the most commonly displayed medium; however, sculpture, photographs, illustrations, installation art and objects from the applied arts may also be shown.
So, technically, my website will be a space that exhibits art - meaning I can call it a gallery.
But do you think an art gallery can actually be on the internet? There are hundreds of websites calling themselves an online art gallery? But is there really such a thing?
So what should I do? Call it a shop or a gallery?
