It probably seems unnecessary to visit an art gallery with the numerous numbers of galleries on the internet.

Although, almost every image is made available on the internet by artists, leaving people to view their works online and decide if they like it enough to leave their house to visit the gallery, or attend the opening reception.

Viewing artwork on the Internet is like driving through the rain. Although, with the wipers, you could see through and manage a drive down to your destination, the picture of the road is never as clear as it'll be on a hot sunny day.

Besides, seeing a person's picture all over the internet doesn't give you the actual connection with the person.
