MEMPHIS/GERMANTOWN Art League

An artists’ social networking and art exhibit/blog website I developed during 2020, in WordPress/Elementor for Memphis/Germantown Art League.

There Are Two Domains & Websites Here:
MGAL.org:
The main website developed in WordPress
  • This is a social networking website for over 100 members, where artists can build a small webpage with a featured project, supporting slideshow, links & video; add photos to their galleries, send/receive messages and “tweets” to other members, post in forums, view calls to artists, group exhibits and news.
  • In 2020, this website also provided a FlipBook of the Together Virtual Art Exhibit for users who might find 3D VR a dizzying experience.
TogetherExhibit.com:
The 2020 3D Virtual Art Exhibition
  • Covid-19 canceled all physical exhibitions scheduled this year, so MGAL went virtual with a new exhibit, shared with another art group, Artists’ Link of Memphis, named Together: A Virtual Art Show.  Viewers can walk through the virtual exhibit with their mouse; or take the tour, which moves to each work through the exhibit for them.  Each exhibited piece has all of its information listed as well as email links to the artists, who individually sell their works to interested buyers. 
Catalogs/Flipbook Links:

I have developed two online catalogs for MGAL exhibits that can be viewed at:
