About Contemporary Art Gallery Online

Contemporary Art Gallery Online is a collector’s number one source for all original contemporary art. CAGOnline is proud to showcase tomorrow’s art giants today. CAGOnline has created CAGO Media which has two purposes. First is to share art business ideas, and second to introduce artists to the buying public. CAGO Media accomplishes both of these initiatives by programming radio and TV shows.

The Business of Art Show airs bi-monthly, 15 to 20 minute episodes. Hosted by Sharon Belle Hawkshawe, each episode discusses everything pertaining to the Business of Art. The What is Art Show is a monthly 30 minute episode with hosts Michael Harris (art collector) and Sharon Hawkshawe (acclaimed artist), who discuss current art movements and art shows. The hosts are occasionally joined by museum curators, gallery owners, art critics, and art insiders. The third show is An Artist Speaks. These lively 30 minute episodes are in-depth interviews with artists discussing their art process, philosophy, and a candid look at their work. Every month, a video is produced showcasing the monthly art participants. Other videos highlight gallery artist and art styles.
