Web-based art and photo gallery CMS suggestions

5. Repurposes content well to tablet/mobile devices.

I never liked them very much to be honest. Others that get some attention lately are Trovebox and Piwigo, but I've never used them.

I'm not sure how pluggable they are.

I assume you have reasons for not wanting to use a hosted solution like SmugMug or Zenfolio or what have you.
