Exhibbit your online gallery


A NEW BUSINESS MODEL IS EMERGING

The Exhibbit software is used by galleries, artists, universities, and schools. Additionally, within the past year an increasing number of artists agents are using Exhibbit gallery spaces as a central presentation platform. This enables clients to view and experience their stable of artists using both solo and group exhibitions.

These agents are based right around the globe; holding regular exhibitions whilst rotating their artists as the shows change. By using Exhibbit, they enable a solution to curate, invite, manage openings, and broaden their social marketing to both a global and local audience; by utilising it's low cost and wide accessibility.


This is an exciting trend and one that should have a positive impact on the industry.

Here are a few examples...

THE SOLO GALLERY

VISIT THE SOLO GALLERY

A more intimate space


The SOLO is the smallest of our galleries, and features four narrow floor to ceiling windows, providing even lighting throughout. A simple wooden bench gives the gallery scale with minimum fuss, making this the perfect space for mounting an exhibition with a small number of works.

This is an intimate environment providing both artist and viewer the simplicity and accessibility of a modern bricks and mortar gallery. 

 
Professional presentation

At just $5 for one whole month on the Curator Plan, even an emerging artist can hold an exhibition and present their work in a professional manner; all from a smart phone, tablet or desktop.


The Curator Plan offers space to exhibit up to eight artworks for just $5, and for another $10, the Curator Plus Plan allows you to display twelve works, for $15 monthly. 


Exhibbit mobile is a great experience, so download our free IOS or Android app to visit exhibitions wherever you are.

 
         
PLEASE UPDATE YOUR EXHIBBIT APP TO THE NEW VERSION.

WATCH PREVIEW
JIM ALFORD'S EXHIBITION

Jim Alford sees and records astonishing celestial events with a formidable arsenal of technical prowess, depth of soul and breadth of vision at his command. When viewing his paintings, the phenomenal, quiet, meditative power of his work washes over you in waves of bliss.
 

 

WATCH PREVIEW
JEREMY PENN'S EXHIBITION

In Vice & Virtue, Jeremy Penn has chosen to blend modernity with pervading sexual attitudes. He has deliberately referenced the bold, brash colors of graffiti – as it’s so often on our street corners and alleyways that we find truth in art; unashamed representations of sex and sin. 

The viewer is not only confronted with a deliberately thought-provoking word, they’re forced to see themselves as part of the image, through their reflection in the piece itself.

 

 

WATCH PREVIEW
ART SUGGEST'S EXHIBITION

Art Suggest's exhibition, Panoramart, features Olivier Rizzo, alias Speedy Graphito, who brings together Ornella Rosa, a sexy and sultry girl with red hair; Trash Anderson, a punk rebel from Bordeaux; Oyo Caramel, a young Asian girl dying bedridden in hospital and some other artists.

For this exhibition, the artists worked together under the spray and stencils of their master, Speedy Graphito who, back in the 80s, was a pioneer of the French ‘Street art’ movement.

 

 

WATCH PREVIEW
ZENITART GALLERY EXHIBITION

ZenitArt presents an exhibition from the Spanish Balearic Islands featuring the blue women by Marc Jesus Vives, which has become an icon of the island of Menorca.

This group exhibition also showcases works by Dolores Comas, David Monros, Doris Duschelbauer and Pastor Aina.

How do galleries market their exhibitions, online?

 

The options are very similar to marketing a bricks and mortar gallery... but with a few extra possibilities.

 

Extending the reach of your exhibition:

The Gallery pictured below curates exhibitions in the Marble gallery, a space similar in style and size to their own, and runs them in tandem with their real gallery exhibitions.
This gives people who can't get to the gallery, and those who wish to re-visit particular artworks, the opportunity to do so.

Long Gallery

Fatu Feu'u exhibition 'The Village' at the Warwick Henderson Gallery Auckland, New Zealand

The experience:

Visitors to the virtual gallery on mobile and computers are able to closely inspect the artworks, and get a real feel for their size.
Inquiries about artworks can be made directly from within the exhibition.


Engagement:

Emailed before opening night a preview of the exhibition with a few selected works, will act as a reminder for people to attend. 


During the show:

After opening, the full exhibition can replace the preview as the online version.
Use Snap & Share to take a picture of your view in the gallery, to send along with a message to selected contacts and post to social sites.
This will bring people to your website to view the embedded exhibition.


Planning ahead:

During the current show, the next exhibition can be curated and previewed offline. This helps with the design process by allowing parties to visualise exhibitions before hanging the physical show.

New gallery launching soon

Solo Gallery One

The Solo Gallery will be available for both the Curator and Curator Plus plans. 


At 3.5 meters high, 7.5 long and 5 meters wide it will accommodate reasonably large works, yet not too expansive for smaller works.

It has a lush, deep chocolate low sheen floor and four discreet vertical windows, giving the gallery a restful ambience.
The five wall spaces provide ample room for up to 8 works under the Curator plan, and 12 on Curator Plus.

Pricing and launch date to be announced soon.

Exhibitions, are they really worth the effort?

 

The first exhibition I ever attended has left me with very vivid memories.
It was a solo show and I was surrounded by a single, very powerful narrative.
The artwork was totally brilliant, but what affected me most, was the concept of an exhibition itself.
It was the perfect platform for telling a contextual story, and to a captive audience, much like a cinema or theatre.

In the marketing of art, presentation has got to be one of the most important components, and holding an exhibition in an art gallery has long been the premiere way to achieve this.
As real estate rents rise, many galleries are ceasing to exist, so holding an exhibition is becoming more of a luxury, and one only a few can afford.

The internet is globalising the art market but its ability to showcase art in the form of an exhibition has been missing, until recently.

Heather James Fine Arts own Gallery One

Exhibitions require a great deal of thought and effort to pull off, so if your fortunate enough to own or have a gallery to hold one in, it makes good sense to extend its reach and life online.
If you are not represented by, or own a gallery, then online is probably the only way you will be able to show your work.
This is the very reason we created Exhibbit.  We wanted to create familiar gallery environments for art lovers and buyers to explore contextual and themed exhibitions in, a solution that artists and gallerists could manage, one that is affordable.

There are many times I have wanted to share the experience of an exhibition with my friends, but the best I could do was email or post a few photos ... now, I can send an entire exhibition for them to experience.
