As we reach the peak of the fall season, the time has come to take a look what are the galleries Widewalls readers loved during the month of October. We had dozens of amazing exhibitions openings in October, and it is difficult even to try to mention only one or two, since almost all of them were simply amazing. Apart from great exhibitions galleries organized, we had a number of art fairs this month. Many galleries we are covering participated at these art fairs, presenting their artists and artworks. All in all, it was a great month.
As usual, many of our readers came on our website to check out what art events are being organized in all those great galleries whose work we are covering. So, we are presenting you 10 galleries that were most visited at Widewalls in October.
The first gallery on our list is Ministry of Walls. As in September, the profile of this amazing gallery on our website had the biggest number of visitors.
