This will help your audience to make their choice easier and to go to the event with a clear idea of the art they would like to purchase. A great and affordable app for that is the InRoomPreview visualization App. You will have your own artist ID that will show your portfolio and only your portfolio to your audience. The setup will take one day and all your customers can download the App for free. visit http://a8m.6b5.myftpupload.com/ for more info,
