This article walks you through how to add a Gallery Bio to your gallery profile. Adding a Gallery Bio provides a great introduction to your gallery for collectors.
In your CMS, the Account tab is where you can manage the core settings of your gallery profile. The Account tab is accessed on the sidebar menu on the left-hand side of the page. When you hover your mouse over the Account tab a dropdown menu appears. Click on “Settings.”
In the “Gallery Info” section of this page, you’ll need to confirm or update all the core information about your gallery, including:
- Gallery bio
- Gallery bio (mobile)
To do so, click “Edit“ on the right side of your screen in this section.
Use the "Gallery Bio" to offer a fuller picture of your program; this will be displayed on your profile page. These two fields will never appear side by side (because of the different devices) so you may have the same information for each field.
Use the “Gallery Bio (Mobile)” to provide a short overview of your program for Artsy users. The text entered here will be displayed on the Artsy mobile apps.
Be sure to click “Save changes” when you’re done.
Having more information within the "Gallery Bio" or "Gallery Bio (Mobile)" fields can help collectors familiarize themselves with your business and inspire confidence on a potential purchase if they have never purchased from you previously. The more information you present, the more information there is for a collector to engage with.
