A small group of artists got together to create a virtual gallery for more and more people whose goals are to make connections through art, and to make art possible for everyone. This people have opened a new door not only for themselves but for every artist with a truly open mind. This is happening right now in Buenos Aires and it’s just a click away.

Arte Chacra, with a small cow on the homepage, combines art and the spirit of the green pampas, the never ending forest filled with cows that make our country what it is now: a large space of possibilities.

As the founders explain, “Arte Chacra was born at the end of year 2002, from the intention of a group of artists that wanted to communicate the actual reality of visual arts in the local context, generating at the same time the possibility to create solid bonds between the participating artists and also with the local and international environment. We must see the art phenomenon as a whole and also a key to constitute our own culture and identity”.

Also, the artists comment that “Arte Chacra, in its Internet version, is a meeting point with art as a window to the artists’ production considering a wide landscape of contemporary art and tendencies without the need to choose one of them. The idea is to generate a level of information that keeps growing and renewing itself”.
