"The Tiny Art Gallery Manual would make a fantastic present for that young or old artist, technician, curator, gallery owner, salesperson, art dealer, family of borrowers in your life."
A tiny gallery is any space that allows small artwork to appear large.
It can be meticulously detailed like a smaller replica of a real space, or it can be a basic cardboard box that represents the idea of a gallery.
A tiny gallery doesn’t have to exhibit miniature art. A tiny gallery can be used to see what small artwork would look like if it was larger.
This little book starts with the history of tiny galleries and goes into the nitty gritty of what you need to know to run your own gallery.
Why run a Tiny Gallery?
It can be hard for very established artists to get into galleries. It sometimes feels impossible for new and emerging artists.
As an artist, running your own gallery will allow you to get an idea of how your work could look in a gallery setting. It will also give you a unique insight into what a gallery needs from creatives which will make working with them easier in the future.
If you are interested in curating exhibitions, a no risk step towards renting real space is to run a miniature version of a gallery.
This is a 5 x 8 inches book with black and white photographs of tiny galleries.
"Do you want to be part of the cultural elite, know someone who does or simply want to know the micro galleries work, then get the Tiny Art Gallery Manual and you too can learn the ins and outs of owning a micro gallery. This very useful book has been made by the very talented Lisa Cole and the human side of Tiny Cat Gallery."
