Most Popular Galleries You Loved in December

December 28, 2016

As the end of the year is near, December is usually the month when all activities during the year are being summed up. When it comes to galleries, they measure the success of the exhibitions they organized, how many artworks were sold, and finally, and most important – they plan activities for the year to come. December was an interesting month, and we saw a number of amazing shows. Since it is the end of the year, many galleries have been hosting Christmas group exhibitions to showcase the variety and diversity of their roster. We are proud to see many of these galleries as part of our own database of art venues. We now present you ten most popular art galleries here on Widewalls for the month of December 2016! See what they have in store for you.
