With Artland Viewing Rooms you can create and curate online curations or exhibitions to send directly to your clients. The tool displays two-dimensional artworks in a virtual space, in order to provide a scale with a physical object (bench). In this way you provide your collectors with the best options to view their possible acquisition.
Create a Viewing Room
First go to your gallery profile. Then scroll to the Exhibitions tab and click on the button “Add Exhibition” in the Admin Toolbar.
You can now select the type of exhibition as Viewing Room and add the desired information. If you do not want to publish the Viewing Room right away choose “Not Published” in the status field in the Privacy Settings.
To add artworks to your Viewing Room, click on the text box labelled “Artworks” and select the artworks you would like to hang in the Viewing Room space.
The artworks need to be added upfront to your gallery page and, in order to be shown properly, their main image needs to be frontal and well cropped to the edges.
If the edges are irregular or the shape of the artwork does not allow it to be perfectly cropped, the image should be uploaded as transparent in .png format without any dropping shadow. It is important that everything outside the object itself is transparent.
Sculptures and tridimensional works can be added only to the 'Available Artworks' tab of the Viewing Room page, but they cannot be displayed on the space. The following media can be displayed on the wall: Painting, Photography, Print, Drawing, Collage, Poster, Textile Arts.
The order of the artworks in the Viewing Room follows the way they are sorted in the Artworks section of your gallery page. Note that you can add how many artworks you want to a Viewing Room, however only 20 will be hung on the wall. Please remember that changing the artworks order in the Artworks section will affect also how they are sorted in the Viewing Room.
You can change the order of the artworks via the feature 'Push the artwork to top' visible when hovering on the artwork image in the gallery page's artworks section. Remember that any edit to an artwork will automatically push the artwork to the top.
Public and private Viewing Rooms
You can easily select or change the status of your viewing room in the Privacy Settings of the exhibition's edit session or on the token in the left upper corner menu of the show's image.
If you choose for a Viewing Room to be private no one but you and your colleagues with access to the gallery admin system can see it under private exhibitions section . If the Viewing Room is public, this will be visible to all visitors on Artland, both on your Gallery and on the Platform's Exhibition Page.
If you want to send a private Viewing Room without publishing it on the Artland platform you can simply keep it in private status and send the direct link to your specific audience. This will keep it private and only visible to you and your chosen recipients.
If a private artwork is included in a public Viewing Room, it will be shown but in the selected Viewing Room only.
Edit a Viewing Room
To edit a Viewing Room, click on the edit icon (pencil) on the upper right corner of the viewing room's image.
