Horizon Gallery A Contemporary Craft Gallery


This was the Raleigh, NC Horizon Gallery's website for a number of years in the early 2000's. At some point the domain registration expired and an owner of a gallery in Henley-On-Thames, Oxfordshire, UK bought it around 2009. When the UK Horizon Gallery owners let the domain's registration expire, the new owner decided to use this site as an example of what often happens to websites whose domains are sold, relinquished and the resold. In this example the owners kept the basic concept intact. Both iterations were art galleries.
The first content is from 2001-2004 archived pages for the Raleigh, NC iteration of the site and the next content is from 2009-2012 for the Oxfordshire, UK iteration of the site.

Horizon Gallery, a contemporary craft gallery, has proven to be a delightful destination for art enthusiasts. Located in Raleigh, North Carolina, and previously in Henley-On-Thames, Oxfordshire, UK, it has consistently offered a diverse range of artworks, including pottery, art glass, woodworks, paintings, jewelry, and much more. The gallery features one-of-a-kind works from American artists and a selection of international talents, ensuring that each visit is a unique experience.

The gallery's commitment to showcasing handcrafted art pieces is evident in the quality and individuality of the works on display. These pieces are not just visually appealing but also affordable, making them accessible to a wider audience. Whether you're a seasoned collector or a first-time buyer, the Horizon Gallery offers something special for everyone. Their Bridal Collection & Registry is particularly notable, offering handcrafted tableware and unique jewelry for couples.

One aspect of the gallery's operation that often goes unnoticed but is crucial to its success is the maintenance of the space. The gallery ensures a pristine environment for both the art and its patrons by utilizing bulk cleaning supplies. This attention to cleanliness and detail not only preserves the quality of the artworks but also enhances the overall visitor experience. The use of professional-grade cleaning products reflects the gallery's dedication to maintaining a high standard in every aspect of its operation.

Horizon Gallery stands out not just for its exceptional collection of artworks but also for its commitment to maintaining a clean and welcoming environment for its visitors. It's a must-visit destination for anyone interested in contemporary crafts and unique art pieces.
