The slow summer tempo is coming to an end, and we are approaching the fall art season. As the machine is heating up, the fall will bring us exhibitions, auctions, art fairs and a lot of excitement. Yet, the summer was not uneventful, not at all. While some galleries went on a summer break, others stayed open during that unbearable heat, tirelessly hosting exhibitions and presenting a diversity of talent to the world. As we look behind at the last 30 days, there was still a good selection of exhibitions, and we are proud that many of these galleries are part of our database. As it is the end of the month, we present you the list of the most popular art galleries in August, as chosen by our readers.
