Irish Art Plus

Irish Art Plus is a small art gallery located in Ballymoney, County Antrim. They deal directly with most of their artists in order to keep prices low for the end customer.

This is Version 2 of the Irish Art Plus website. Version 1 was created by myself in 2006, and had limited functionality beyond displaying the gallery's art. Version 2 was to build upon the initial framework and enhance the features, including adding e-Commerce. The new site now contains several hundred pieces of art from over thirty well known and up and coming Irish artists. Visitors can register for an account and use this to store their favourites, download high quality images, request quotations, and purchase pieces online using Paypal. The search engine also allows visitors to search for works by artists names, keywords, and even a colour search allowing them to find art to match their needs.

Since the site launched the artists galleries have attracted over 120,000 hits, with JP Rooney reaching 25,000 hits alone.

Update - December 2014: Total gallery hits are now at 480,000 with JP Rooneys individual gallery on 69,000.
