Expanding Expectations: Portal to Enigma, Persistence of Form, and The Fire Within

Posted: April 11, 2017 20:14

This spring Agora Gallery presents a trio of exhibitions that elevate tradition. The group exhibition Portal to Enigma takes on abstraction, with participating artists depicting people, nature, and everyday life through various aesthetic lenses. Some play with color, some play with pattern, some even attempt to turn the invisible visible and play with time. There are also pieces that are purely non-representational studies in repetition, brushstroke, and tone contrasts. A smaller collective exhibition, Persistence of Form, seeks to tease more out of the realist style. The featured work...

Spatial Fluidity and Contemporary Perspectives

Posted: March 19, 2017 19:04

This April Agora Gallery embraces the unexpected with a trio of forward-thinking exhibitions. Spatial Fluidity features nine artists who blur the line between two-dimensional and three-dimensional art, be it through introducing new media or using traditional materials in unique ways. There are pieces that experiment with mixed textures, some that use distinctive and asymmetric surfaces, and some that even incorporate light. Contemporary Perspectives is a group exhibition that marries classic subject matter with new styles, such as romantic botanicals portrayed in energized, saturated...

February 2017 Exhibitions: Plurality of Expression and Emerging Visions

Posted: December 28, 2016 07:43

Agora Gallery presents Plurality of Expression and Emerging Visions, two collective exhibitions that celebrate the different ways today's artists approach aesthetic. Plurality of Expression includes abstraction, surrealism, still life, and portraiture, each with a twist that pushes them beyond the usual boundaries of genre. A photographer creates "portraits" of women covered or wrapped in various tactile substances in a meditation on womanhood, and on the next wall over a painter superimposes stark, one-dimensional earthly beings onto rainbow-colored paintings of the heavens. Emerging...

January 2017 exhibitions: Enigmatic Realms and Kaleidoscope of the Mind

Posted: November 29, 2016 21:58

Agora Gallery welcomes the new year with two exhibitions that dive into the most inventive corners of contemporary art. Enigmatic Realms is a collective featuring eight artists who together truly touch every part of modern society. There are inquiries into technology alongside placid images from the seashore. There are highly allegorical narratives, and there are jolting images of objects in motion. What ties each artist together is the unifying determination to see everyday people, places, and things in a new way. Similarly, Kaleidoscope of the Mind is a collective exhibition in which...

December 2016 exhibitions: Sensorial Perspectives and Landscapes of the Mind

Posted: November 02, 2016 00:32

This December Agora Gallery presents two exhibitions that aim to plunge the viewer into new environments. Sensorial Perspectives is a collective exhibition that spans painting, photography, and mixed-media, all in the service of exploring art as something more than simply a visual medium. This experimentation can be seen in portraits in which realistic draftsmanship and neon colors have a playful back-and-forth, or photographs that present the world from the point of view of someone always in motion. Sound, touch, and motion are all evoked. Landscapes of the Mind collects six of the most...

November Exhibitions: Divergent Realities and Illumination: An Exhibition of Fine Art Photography

Posted: October 03, 2016 20:12

This November, Agora Gallery will cover remarkable ground within contemporary art through Divergent Realities and Illumination: An Exhibition of Fine Art Photography. The exhibition Divergent Realities is a collection of six artists with uniquely well-defined visual languages. Comprising a detailed watercolor artist, a realist pencil draftsman, a surrealist, a graphic landscape artist, and two abstract painters, the small group is completely different from one another in its concerns and experiments, yet exist in harmony. Illumination features a similarly wide-ranging group of...
