In Greece, architecture was filled with covered passages that were open at one side, such as a portico or a
colonnade. These passages are also known as a gallery. Facing into a structure, a gallery may either be set
into the thickness of a wall at ground level or be elevated and supported on columns or corbels. It would
function as a communicating passage. Galleries appear as long, narrow rooms in substantial Renaissance
houses and palaces, where they were used as promenades and to exhibit art. In Elizabethan and Jacobean
houses these were called long galleries. The modern term art gallery is derived from this usage.
In Elysium Gates you will find this area filled with members who are artisans. Fine art, graphics, crafts, jewelry
design, architects and fashion design to mention but a few.
