Art Galleries You Liked the Most in August
The summer hiatus is coming to an end. Even though the gallery scene slows down during the summer, these past months were not inactive. As we look behind at the last 30 days, there was still a good selection of exhibitions, summer group shows and galleries that did their best to stay active despite the heat. We are glad that many of these galleries are part of our database and that we can present our readers with their latest exhibitions and activities.
