How would the Art Galleries be?
Overview of the gallery
The art galleries are carefully designed with keeping the users’ experience in mind so that visitors do not lose the entire experience of an art exhibition auditorium. Upon entrance, users will get to enjoy different types of inspiring original artworks, prints, paintings, drawings, sculptures, photography, ceramics, installations, and more decorated on walls or booths of the virtual art gallery almost with likes of a real one.
Visitors will have the freedom to choose which booth to go for without even entering it. All the booths are labelled by name and booth number, the base location of the gallery, and its downloadable catalogue. As an add-on, booths will also feature a video profile, contact number, and email address of the booth owner artist or studio.
Inside the booth
When you enter the booth of the virtual India Art Festival, you will get to start with a virtual demonstration of various artworks showcased by the artist/group of artists in a three-dimensional illustration with some background music beautifully complementing the artworks. The imaging is designed in such a way that you can move around the entire place just by moving your fingers on the image.
And when you go on various arts one by one, you will find the name of the art, a brief description of the art, size of it and its marked price. If you think that you have the right place to keep that particular piece of art and it fits your pocket, you can either place your queries about the art in front of the artists, or if you have already made your mind, you also have the option to buy it directly.
The artist’s section
“The principles of true art is not to portray, but to evoke”. And those who are experts in this are given a separate section on the websites. If you are a fan of an artist or if you have a few favourites among them, you can also search them by name in the Artist’s Pavilion section with all the same features of a booth mentioned above.
