About Contemporary Art Gallery Online

Contemporary Art Gallery Online was founded in 2001 to be the ultimate meeting place for sharing art. Their purpose is to create a platform whereby artists can display and ultimately sell their work. They encourage the exploration of art, discussion of art, and the support of those who create art. Since its inception, CAGO has promoted and sold art on behalf of its member artists. CAGO hosts a juried, monthly art competition. Each month there is a different theme. All participants are then showcased for a month in an online gallery exhibition.

Contemporary Art Gallery Online specializes in the contemporary art form. Contemporary art is defined as artistic work from the present era that uses the current practices and styles of its discipline. Although the words Modern Art and Contemporary Art are used interchangeably, they represent two distinctive moments on the art timeline. Modern Art encompasses the art from the Impressionists (around 1880) up until the 1970’s. Contemporary Art encompasses the art from the 1970’s to present.
