Rodrigues Contemporary is an online gallery working just like a bricks and mortar gallery. We promote artists and sell their original works, in many media and styles, in order to allow them to focus on creating their art. A feature artist page is developed on our website for each artist highlighting the artist bio, images of the artworks and a description. We post on our Instagram with over 10,000 followers. Artists and their work are featured in our newsletters to art collectors and former clients. Similar to hosting a pop-up art show, we can facilitate online exhibitions at our discretion.
