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.

They find and represent artists with unique talent and ideas, a strong vision, and compelling style. Age or education are not the most important criteria. They are more interested in authenticity, perseverance, professionalism, and outstanding artworks – no matter the medium.

Abstract Photography Competition (Online)- Call For Artists

Abstract Photography Competition (Online)- Call For Artists

[Sponsored Listing] The New York Center for Photographic Art (NYC4PA) announces a call for artists for Abstract, an online photography competition. Abstract art is art that does not attempt to represent an accurate depiction of a visual reality, but instead use shapes, colors, forms, and gestural marks to achieve its effect.

Click here for the application / registration

Deadline: 7 Mar 2021

The early days of photography centered on true to life imagery, i.e. family portraits, images of streets, towns, and mansions. Over time, photographers expanded their vision to more moody images, ultimately to where photography is today – an all encompassing art form generated by camera and lens and producing a vast sampling of imagery from reality to less recognizable abstracts.

This call is about the abstracts – those images that are not instantly identified as that person, that thing, and so forth. It doesn’t matter if you photograph something abstract or create the abstraction through photographic processes. Macro shots, close ups of graffiti, fanciful post processing manipulations, or just photographing something at an angle that disguises it. They all work. As with all NYC4PA calls all 2D photo mediums are welcome.

The prizes total $3000 and have a grand prize, 3 first prizes, 3 second prizes, 3 third prizes – 20 juror’s selections and 20 honorable mentions. All 50 winners are posted in a gallery on the NYC4PA website and included in an exhibition gallery. The call is open to any photographers worldwide and of any age, amateurs or professional. A professional photographer, gallery owner, or photography teacher is the juror.

About New York Center for Photographic Art

New York Center for Photographic Art offers six opportunities a year for photographers, from amateur to professional, male or female, and young or old. NYC4PA was conceived and developed by Patricia Gilman and Maddi Ring. It offers photographers from around the world opportunities to exhibit their work in New York.  Maddi and Patricia are experienced photographers and exhibition producers who understand the value of showcasing artists work in galleries. They have marketed their own work, both together and individually, in a variety of venues.  These exhibitions have been in New York City, New Jersey, and Connecticut. Each has her own images in various venues, including private collections.
