Art Shows and Gallery 247 - Who Does What

Gallery 247 consists of three core components:

National Registry of Australian Art and Artists (NRAAA), which is a registry of artists, their capabilities and their work.

Artists' Gateway and Online Gallery, which provides multiple services to artists who want to sell on line, promote their work or raise their profile generally.

Art Show Management System, which greatly simplifies the management of an art show, as well as make it easier for artists to enter participating shows.

The following comparison covers just the art show portion of Gallery 247's involvement.

Broadly speaking, art show managers are responsible for managing and controlling the management and operation of the show itself.  Gallery 247 is responsible for the underlying system that makes it easier for them to do so.
