About CollexArt

A little something for everyone who loves art!
Our content is designed to engage artists, buyers, and art enthusiasts at every level of the fine art process. CollexArt™ features an Online Exhibition Gallery, Calls for Art, a Curated Art Store (for the sale of fine art), and an Community Marketplace (for the sales of tools, supplies and collectible art books). Artists, buyers, and enthusiasts also benefit from participation in our Community Forum where discussions include our online exhibits, artist projects, behind-the-scenes studio tours, and more.

Our curated online exhibits highlight the artists we feature and widen the audience for their work. Artists who want to exhibit with CollexArt can submit work by clicking on Submit in the main menu and entering one of our calls for entry. We accept submissions from USA and International artists who wish to be considered for our Annual Grand Prize, Online Exhibit Space, and our Purchase Awards. Artists selected for exhibits get their work featured, an Artist Profile Page, and can sell their art through the curated section of the CollexArt Store.

Our art buyers discover contemporary artwork in Curated Online Exhibits, and have access to Artist Profile Pages for an in-depth look at featured artists. Buyers can browse and purchase art directly from artists in the CollexArt Store and use CollexArt Buyer Services to facilitate the transaction.
Helping Artists Succeed Online

CollexArt was developed by Kodexio, an American software company that includes team members in the arts, web development, and graphic design. Our group has been building software solutions for artists and art organizations since 2003. We have helped thousands of artists with their online presence and we have been inspired by their talent and life stories. The software development effort behind CollexArt is the direct result of years of working with artists, many of whom we know on a first name basis.

Most of our team members have been together for more than a decade. We have staff located in the DC Metro area, Portland, Maine, and Europe.

Eliza Jarquin Manegold heads the curatorial team. Her work as Marketing and Communications Director at Kodexio is informed by her background in the arts. Eliza studied studio arts at Wellesley College, the School of the Museum of Fine arts in Boston, and completed a Masters in Architecture from Yale University. At Yale, she enjoyed seminars and lectures with James Turrel and Robert Irwin, among many others, and attended Masters in Photography review sessions with critics such as David Levinthal, Gregory Crewdson, and Lois Conner.

Raul Jarquin is Kodexio's founder and CEO. He is the architect of CollexArt and an artist in his own right. Over the past couple of decades, he has poured energy into developing artist services such as FolioLink, C4E at callforentries.com, the commercial submission system SubmitArts, and now CollexArt. Prior to concentrating on the arts, Raul's company created and managed large portal sites for commercial and non-profit entities.
