About Galri Montaj
The arts provide countless opportunities to enrich our communities, while supporting the intellectual development of our children. Numerous studies demonstrate that the arts enhance learning and increase engagement in the classroom, while providing opportunities for creative collaboration. In other words, the arts are good for us.
The passion that artists exhibit to unite and uplift through the arts, to protect the environment, and to stimulate and support community engagement, are my inspiration. It’s an honor to be a part of the life-changing experience of the arts.
Our goal is to provide an accessible and visually engaging platform for exhibiting your artwork, with a focus on getting your work ‘out there’ and in front of collectors. If you are an artist looking for representation, contact us with a link to your digital portfolio for a no-cost review. It will be our pleasure.

Most of us have a picture of our “dream” future. Some people are lucky and things fall into place, more often though, we have to work hard and make sacrifices in order to have the life we want. There are so many inspirational stories where people have worked hard and made their dreams a reality. What is your dream and what are you willing to do to reach it?
Reflect, write and dream on the page! 🙂
“It is impossible to discourage the real writers – they don’t give a damn what you say, they’re going to write.” ~ Sinclair Lewis
“Let’s just say that if these scientists had been using their brilliance for good instead of evil, cars would run off water vapor and leave fresh compost behind them; no one would be hungry; no one would be ill; all buildings would be earthquake-, bomb-, and flood-proof; and the world’s entire economy would have collapsed and been replaced by one based on the value of chocolate. ” ~ James Patterson
As writers, we get to create characters and build little worlds for them to live in. Sometimes we are kind and other times we create a cruel, often unpredictable world to help add a dimension to our story. What if you could create your OWN world to live in? Would you create a perfect paradise or a world created with a balance of both good and bad? Describe it in detail. What would you do differently in your world? What would the currency be; money, time, kind deeds or like Mr. Patterson, my personal favorite chocolate? 😉 Get creative, reflect, write and most of all, have fun! 🙂
“Talent is cheaper than table salt. What separates the talented individual from the successful one is a lot of hard work.” – Stephen King
“No matter what he does, every person on earth plays a central role in the history of the world. And normally he doesn’t know it.” ~Paulo Coelho
Using your favorite historical figure whether, it’s a world leader, author, actress or revolutionary thinker, someone who has inspired you; write a story where you bring this person from their place in history to the present day. How does this person cope in modern times? Are they aware of the significance of the contributions they made? Are they as effective in the present as they were in the time they came from?
Get creative, reflect, write and most of all, have fun! 🙂
