I was thinking a display area of works done by our artists, thus GALLERY.  I was not thinking of a sales area.  Each work of art could be linked to that individuals shop, but no direct sales from the display.   :)

Possible two areas, Gallery for display; Galleria for sales? ???

Galleria also makes me think of a mall because there is what I believe is a chain of malls called Galleria.  Gallery alone seems too generic to me.

John it will look similar to this  http://www.etsy.com/treasury/MTI5MDk1OTZ8MTc0MjU1MDY0NA/a-blessing-no-disguise?index=0 and this  http://www.etsy.com/treasury/MTI5MDk1OTZ8MTc0MjU1MDY0NA/a-blessing-no-disguise?index=0So each image will be linked to your piece.
I'm personally not a big fan of treasuries, never  did one and never cared to do one. The only reason why we are doing it is many people like them and they make good content. If you think about it, treasuries, have a title description and keywords, more content makes google happy. Also it is just one more place for people to find your work. Additionally people seem to like to promote their treasuries which helps everyone. Now if we can all come up with a name we'll be in good shape.

The best I've seen suggested so far was Gallery, although I have to agree with another poster that this sounds to generic.  It also seems to  plain to me.  Maybe it we added a word before it...like The Gallery or Artists'  Gallery, something like that.  Some of the other  suggestions sound more like bargain stores or shopping areas to me.  This should be the place to showcase items.  It will help you get noticed since people looking at them could click and be taken to you item or store.  We need a name that says quality art.  I'll do some more thinking about this.

I admit, I like galleria - because there are a couple of galleries in alb with galleria as part of the name - so I took a couple of suggestions and came up with
Galleria Inspirations
or Inspiration Gallery

my brain is too numb - or wait is there voting already???

Tonight I realized where my aversion to "galleria" comes from.  We were at the mall with friends for dinner and I saw that new chain jewelry store:  Jared.  It's like another Kay or Zales.  And it bills itself as "Jared - the Galleria of Jewelry." Gag me.

I am with you on aversion to "Galleria", for me it is the association with a chain of malls.

I'm still stumped, I look at the suggestions and they all merge together.  I like handmade picks or artists picks. But I'm simple and don't want to confuse a customer.
Anybody have time to put the suggestions in a list? So we can start removing some and dwindling down to our favorites. We need to get through this as I want to get it going soon. Help :o :o :o :o

I think I like Window Shop. The set up is generally squares kind of like window panes and you're looking in. It's to the point and not confusing.

We already have the name window shop, it is what we call our blog widget. Like an Etsy Mini or Artfire rapid cart. You can get it in your user admin.

So that on is sort of out unless we change the name of the widget. Which may confuse others so I would say it is out.
