Place images of your 3D-like Art pieces and/or sculptures inside your online shows.
With that said, you now get to showcase ceramic pieces, sculptures, and statues on the floor or in customizable pedestals!

Once placed, the pieces will always be front faced and follow the visitors’ point of view. 

Visit our demo show:

NOTE: Your work must have been previously uploaded to the Artworks' section prior to engage in the curating process. We recommend uploading PNG format image files with transparent (cropped out) background.
We also suggest the images of the pieces to be taken from a slightly angled point of view to enhance the final 3D illusion.

If you haven't done that yet, we recommend having a look at this article before moving forward.

  1. Log into your ArtPlacer account Dashboard and head up to Virtual Exhibitions > My Virtual Exhibitions

  2. Click NEW to start curating your Exhibition

You could also begin this process by selecting a Virtual Gallery upfront.

Step 1: Details

Type in the Exhibition details such as title, author, opening date, and don't forget to include a brief description of it. 

You could also upload a brochure in PDF format.

Visitors get to download it once the Exhibition had been published.

Step 2: Select a Venue

Select the Virtual Venue (or Gallery) on you which you want the Exhibition to take place (the options available may vary according to the active subscription plan).

You may also upload a thumbnail image for your Virtual Exhibition.

The image you set there, will be used to identify the Exhibition within the 'My Virtual Exhibitions' section, on the Exhibition's welcoming screen, and on your Discover ArtPlacer page (only if the Exhibitions is set as a featured item within your Discover Page settings).


Selecting the pieces:

Click on the red 'SELECT ARTWORKS' button to select and import the pieces you want to showcase on the new Exhibition from your Artworks' section, then hit 'Apply' (bottom right corner).

The all new 'PEDESTALS' (cubes with letters) tab was introduced to showcase 3D-like Art pieces (like ceramic vases, sculptures, etc.):

Our platform will automatically place the selected Artworks on the nearest available slot and/or pedestal. 

NOTE: While on the 'Curate Virtual Exhibition' view, the Artworks' resolution will be reduced to a 50%.

This was thought like that to guarantee smooth transitions and make the curating process faster. The Artworks' resolution will be restored to 100% after the Virtual Exhibition is saved under your Published and/or Unpublished section.

Order, position, and pedestals adjustments:

You can change the sculptures' order and send and send it to a complete different pedestal by clicking and dragging them up or down from this iconwithin the list to the right side of your screen:

If you want to perform precise position adjustments within the pedestal, like moving one sculpture closer to each other, click on this icon  besides the piece you wish to adjust. The platform will auto travel towards it.

The platform will auto travel towards to it and the position and pedestal adjustments should come alive.

You can turn the pedestals on and off. If turned off, the sculpture will rest on the floor of the venue.

Use the position sliders to change the pedestal position

Customizing the Venue:

You can customize how the Gallery looks by changing its floor material, wall, and ceiling colors.

Just click on the 'CUSTOMIZE' button (bottom center of your screen) and these options should come alive:

Saving the Exhibition and its changes:

To save your Exhibition by first time, or apply any changes you may have made, click on the red 'Save the Exhibition' button (bottom right corner).

This will send the Exhibition to the Unpublished Virtual Exhibitions' section, where you get to preview it before making it public.
