I see a show about painting. An exhibition at a private art gallery is a way of introducing a new artist to the public . The idea is to stage an event that will create interest in the artist and stimulate sales of his or her work. Exhibitions of painting , sculpture, and photography at public museums and galleries are different from private showings.
The works exhibited at public museums are by established, well-known artists. Many exhibitions include works from the museum’s permanent collection—that is, works owned by the museum.
