Virtual exhibitions online - what about the software / webware?

Two things became very apparent during the Pandemic

  • art galleries had their galleries closed - and finally appreciated why websites are important - and why you need more than just small thumbnail images of the artwork on your website - if you've got one.
  • art societies had their exhibitions cancelled - and finally got the point of the "virtual online art exhibition" - but haven't always known how to go about creating one

I plan to write something about how to develop an "online art exhibition" (as a replacement / add on for art gallery / art society exhibitions).

To this end I'm trying to identify relevant website software and/or webware platforms which have the functionality to deliver efficient and effective virtual exhibitions online.  
I'm also contacting software agents re "online art exhibition gallery" software/webware and pricing plans and how they work.

Help please

Can you please 
I'd much appreciate it, if those people who have been involved in developing an online exhibition told me

  • What software / platform host have you used - and what were the pros and cons?
  • When choosing which software / platform option to use what sort of criteria did you use to make a decision?
  • What did you learn from the experience?
  • What would you have done differently and/or spent more time on?
Plus for all those who want to know more about what you need to do to create a virtual online exhibition for an art gallery or art society
  • What do you want to know re how to develop an online art exhibition?

If you just need help with websites

For those wanting to know more about how to develop a better website more about see my HUGE section on Websites for Artists on my Art Business Info for Artists website
