August 2, 2016

An interesting phenomenon occurs every summer - the entire art sphere goes silent. Galleries usually close their doors for the slow season and only the most eager ones continue their activities. Still, with a lot of human movement that the vacation period implies, a lot of travel, tourism and people exchanging locations worldwide, some of the top art galleries saw the potential in keeping up pace. The hot season of the year might be a slow time for the usual collector, but it still opens new prospective in alluring new art lovers into their world, offering them artwork of high quality often wrapped in a summer special. Widewalls is proud to include and present galleries that are active, each in their own right, during the summer, and which engage and inspire our readers to return to them.
With the frequent new print editions, new and upcoming artists, alternative art styles or just following the hype of the street art season, we give to you the top art galleries of July 2016, as selected by you!
