About A Gorilla Gallery

A Gorilla Gallery is an open source concept to create pop up galleries in public spaces.  Started to help Artists gain more attention and expose the public to high quality original art.  

The concept is simple.  Find a public space that can benefit from high quality original art such as retail, restaurant, public administration buildings, etc. and curate it with a mini pop up gallery show.  Each pop up entails an opening event celebrating the collaboration of the business and the artist.  Profits are shared between the space owner, artist and curator.  

For inquiries about participating as an Artist or as a pop up space please contact us.
