Mini Gallery highlights
As of April 2016 Mini Gallery has closed. Thank you to all the artists and art lovers who have enjoyed and supported Mini Gallery over the years.
Mini Gallery was an award-winning online gallery website showcasing a fantastic range of affordable original art and prints.
Mini Gallery membership was open to talented new, emerging and established British artists who each had all-inclusive annual membership and accessed professional online gallery space using a secure admin area.
Mini Gallery was an independent small business wholly created, owned and run by Hazel & Chris Storey. As freelancers Hazel & Chris have been responsible for a wide range of website design and development projects for over 15 years as well as running their own online businesses.
Mini Gallery was first created in November 2002. The idea developed in response to enquiries from artists who found that they were not able to realise the potential of the Internet for publicising their art.
Mini Gallery generated art sales across the UK and worldwide. As well as sales and commissioned work from members of the public the site also led to many other opportunities for the member artists including approaches from gallery owners, fine art publishers and the press leading to regional and national publicity.
Mini Gallery was a Greater London regional finalist in the ShellLiveWIRE Young Entrepreneur of the Year awards in 2004 and a London regional finalist in the 2004 Department for Trade & Industry / InterForum Ecommerce awards.
Mini Gallery was featured in 'Woman & Home' magazine, 'Red' magazine, 'House & Home Ideas' magazine, 'Web User' magazine, 'GoldLink' magazine for Goldsmiths alumni, the 'Daily Mail' and the 'Daily Mirror'.
Mini Gallery was included in the widely acclaimed 'Writers' & Artists' Yearbook' published by A & C Black and 'The Artist's Yearbook: All the information and advice you need to get ahead in the UK art world' published by respected art publishers Thames & Hudson. The website was given excellent reviews by The Good Web Guide and 'Internet Works' as well as achieving a bronze award from 'Web User' magazine.
