NEW! Allegory Gallery Design Challenge Mixes!

With our Design Challenges, we realize that with current economic climates, some of our larger kits may be out of reach for some participants. So, we have created these pared-down Design Challenge Mixes in a hope to connect with more challengers and further accessibility. Our goal is to create a mix for each month with an...

Are Texts Better than Email for You?

Hello Friends! We're very excited to announced that we've added a new way for you to be able to stay in touch with all that goes on here at Allegory Gallery!
