Would WP be good for a art gallery website

Hi there,

New here, but I need to design a site that will be use to showcase works of art with frequent additions and deletions therefore a CMS is need, would a WP platform be good for this, I am v. good at html and CSS etc, but not mySQL and PHP therefore using a ready made system.

If you thinks WP would be good would also recommend me the best image/gallery plug ins.

BTW I wont be using a pre-made WP theme, up a custom one based on ThemeShaper “How to made a wordpress theme”

Thanks very much
