Gallery.sg was mentioned in Singapore’s main local paper, The Straits Times, on the 29th of April, 2014. Proud day for the project! It was a huge article about the growing trend of art sales on the Internet. Gallery.sg is the only mentioned site that does not actually sell art.
“Although unique, the presence of Gallery.sg under-scores the varied, exciting landscape of art galleries in the digital age and it points to how two models of galleries, online and offline, sometimes conflate.”
The current show, The Web Art Show, on Gallery.sg will be open 24 hours till July. So do drop via your laptops/computers!
For those who missed the opening on the 19th of April, here is a video recorded by Randal Packer from Washington DC, during part of the 5 hour virtual event . It was 4am in the morning for him!

“This is essentially an experiment but one with endless possibilities for the future.There are many ways in which state museums, commercial galleries, not-for-profits, artists, and industry professionals could possibly use this platform. Not in the least to reduce the cost of logistics and travel but also to extend their reach to audiences who may not be able to physically attend exhibitions for economic reasons, health concerns, or even weather conditions.” Said local artist and Web Art Movement founder, Eugene Soh.
Thanks for having me TEDxYouth@Singapore!
