|This is a review of Gallery 209, original comments: This site is for a group of artists who own and run a gallery in Savannah, Ga. A variety of media and arts are represented.The member list is not completely finished, as some members still have to submit the necessary information. This is a first web site for this gallery.|
- I must say, having created one or two artist sites myself and run an on-line gallery for a couple years, I am most impressed. The artwork on your intro page is beautiful and your simple, strait-forward design keeps the focus where it should be... on the art. I am looking forward to seeing what you do with the artists' individual pages. There are only a couple things you should look at with your coding to make this site perfect. You have 2 "meta http-equiv="imagetoolbar" content="no"" tags in your header. You can safely remove one of them. :) Also use your alt tags on your images. Especially your logo and the artwork! Most search engines will look at your alt tags. Plus they are helpful for adding information for people using browsers that show the text on mouseover.
On the links to your artists' websites... You definately do want to change the target from "parent" to "_blank" on these links since they all lead off of your site. You're visitors will get lost and won't be able to find you again if you have off site links opening in the same window.
Another suggestion would to be include your full address on your site. I know your index page has your address and phone on it, but I would put that on every page on the bottom of the box your navigation is in.
All in all, you have a wonderful site here. I had to get "picky" to find something wrong. Your artists should be very pleased.
