The Launch of the GTBank Virtual Art Gallery known as ART635 (art635.gallery) took place on Wednesday, September 21, 2016 at the GTBank Head Office Victoria Island Lagos.
Art635 is a foremost online repository of African artworks and is set to serve as a leading platform for the promotion of indigenous artists across the continent. The Gallery will significantly expand the exposure of indigenous artists, provide an enabling platform for the marketing of their works, reignite interest in African art and drive the growth and development of the local art industry.
At the launch of the Art635 gallery were top management staff of Guaranty Trust Bank plc, captains of Nigeria’s art industry, seasoned artists, art lovers and members of the press.
ART635 is the latest of the Bank’s sustained efforts to promote African arts locally and internationally. Arts is one of the four pillars of GTBank’s Corporate Social Responsibility policy and the Bank’s support for Arts over the years ranges from buying art works from talented Nigerian artists for display in branches to partnerships with Tate and other Art institutions to promote the value of African Art in Africa and the international market through project-lead initiatives.
