We are a gathering of those who run Micro Galleries or are run by them.
Our aim is to exhibit art as part of a narrative that includes unusual audiences and locations.
A Micro Gallery is a space that isn’t a typical gallery but somewhat functions like one.
There is no set limit to the scale of a Micro Gallery nor is there a limit to the amount one can own, or the size of the work displayed (if it fits, it sits).
Micro refers to the size of the gallery, not the size of the work. It may also be called a Tiny, Small, Miniature or Mini Gallery.
Micro Galleries do not require a fixed location to be viewed but those that do are considered stationery those that don’t are nomadic.
A Micro Gallery can be either physical, digital or both and can be constructed from anything.
Membership to the G.M.G is by invitation, there is no charge for membership.
Membership is a recognition of excellence in Micro Gallery management.
We promote and encourage artists we exhibit and support and nurture other members
There is no limit to how many shows can be held although at least one a year would be nice but isn’t a banishing offence if not done.
The operation of a Micro Gallery can be a free space in which artists aren’t required to pay for its services but shoulder the delivery of their art.
Micro Galleries also have the opportunity to sell the work of exhibiting artist to support the continuous running of the gallery or for profit
The owner/ curator has the right to show whatever they please whether it’s a set theme, standpoint, artist career group or single artist.
