About Us

Canadian Artists Online (CAO) is a national membership & event-based organization and online community for Canadian Artists and art stakeholders, with our base and network of volunteers located in Toronto. CAO was formed after hearing from upcoming and established Artists on their experiences and pitfalls breaking into the Art World.

See our Mission & 2017 Objectives.

Our goal is to help Artists gain exposure and connect with the Artist Community, help them market & earn an income from their work (either through selling, leasing or renting), and gain access to deals and discounts on art supplies, artist services, and other perks through our network of affiliate partners. We will be announcing more exciting member-only benefits, contests & events in the months to come. See all member benefits.

As a Member you gain access to benefits such as a portfolio section that lets you showcase your bio and artwork, posting articles and events in our News & Events section, and featuring your artwork in the CAO Gallery. Members are also welcome to display and sell their artwork on the CAG e-Gallery (online shop) or grant us permission to handle their portfolio & marketing and rent/lease out their artwork to earn a monthly income.

Members can also participate in member-only contests and shows organized by CAO. Upcoming events include our Online Competition series, ongoing member shows (Toronto venue to be announced soon), and the Grand Jury Exhibition held at the end of every year.
