Conversations and Color Revolutions: Two New Exhibitions in NYC

Posted: June 07, 2015 10:31 Last Updated: | Olga Ku

This July, Agora Gallery presents two collective exhibitions to re-imagine and reinvigorate the world. Répartie in Art presents the work of international artists as they tackle the concept of “space” and those who occupy it. From landscapes to fragments of a scene, from human or animal subjects to something more abstract, the works open a dialog between artist and audience on a variety of levels. Rhapsody in Color is an exhibition of immeasurable vibrancy, presenting expert combinations and groupings of hue to produce carefully calculated reactions in the viewer. By applying their manipula...

Bodies and Spaces: Two Collective Exhibitions at Agora Gallery

Posted: May 18, 2015 05:22 Last Updated: | Olga Ku

This June, Agora Gallery will host two collective exhibitions that take on the challenge of redefining figures and spaces through a variety of artistic techniques. The artists featured in the exhibition In Reverie of Form tackle subjects of flora, fauna, and the human body, to examine various phenomena with their representations. Culture, psychology, and natural beauty are all considered by this talented array of artists, and are given a comprehensive re-examination through sheer technical mastery. Sharing the gallery, the artists in Spatial Articulation take their color, patterns, and geo...

May and June at Agora Gallery

Posted: April 17, 2015 01:20 Last Updated: | Olga Ku

The Australian and New Zealander artists featured in Out From Down Under & Beyond represent some of the finest emerging talent from the Oceanian art world. These artists draw inspiration from their nations’ histories, their natural splendor, the artists’ own travels across the globe, and their internal processes. They offer a unique and unforgettable view into a familiarly unfamiliar world. In Nicole Tremblay’s paintings, displayed in the solo exhibition, Sovereign Women / Femmes Souveraines, female subjects take on a presence that is larger than life. “I have always been fascinated by...

Robert Loughlin - the chair that brought me into a scene in NYC!

Robert Loughlin

Posted: September 29, 2011 17:03 Last Updated: | Heather Karlie Vieira

  For those of you who have set foot in New York City within the last thirty years or so - you have probably seen 'The Brute'.  Square jawed.  Strong.  Felt tip marker or paint.  He's been everywhere.  On mid century furniture, books, art, walls - you name, 'The Brute' has been there. He's the creation of famous New York City artist and icon, Robert Loughlin. Robert's story is a great one.  He's been in all the right places at all the right times.  He was buying important mid century furniture before it was important.  He was creating a...

Judith Shahn, The Early Work

Posted: September 18, 2011 14:19 Last Updated: | Susan Teller

New York Real Estate is Location, Location, Location

Posted: September 08, 2011 08:33 Last Updated: | Heather Karlie Vieira

You know this already.  We've all heard it.  The three most important things in real estate are location, location and location.  And when you're speaking of Manhattan real estate you had better add numerous zeros.  This 'City that Never Sleeps' offers everything you could want (and maybe some things that you don't) throughout the city.  And there's a price for that convenience.  Whether you rent or own, a Manhattan store is no small investment.  With rents in the 10's of thousands of dollars per month and prices to own in the millions, what is a start up...

The End of an Era... Almost

Posted: August 31, 2011 20:29 Last Updated: | Heather Karlie Vieira

Ever since I moved to New York City in 2002, I have been an early morning (well before dawn) shopper at the flea markets along 6th Avenue.  By the time I had arrived on the scene, and I do mean scene, there were a few different parking lots and an indoor parking garage packed with hundreds of dealers set up selling every imaginable treasure, and some trash, you could ever hope to find.  Celebrities and rarities.  Sure, I was told of the good old days in the 80's and 90's, when there were many more lots and even better choices, but this was my time and I made the most of it. ...

Have you ever heard that?  Have you ever said that?  Well, we won't be taking names, so don't worry.  Maybe you've asked yourself, "what is abstract art?".  Here's my take on it.  It is emotional.  It is strong.  It is powerful.  Abstract art is more than splashes of color, squiggly lines and paint splatters.  It is spontaneity.  It is the raw emotion of the artist presented for all who dare to look.  It is the visual representation of a feeling, or mix of feelings.  An artist strives to represent something without external likene...

Edith Branson (1891 - 1976) An American Modernist

Posted: September 24, 2010 11:55 Last Updated: | James Puzinas

Edith Branson was an American modernist painter who created her own interpretation of the multitude of avant-garde movements that blossomed in Europe and New York City in the early 20th century. Most of Branson's work is reflective of her personal life as a young woman living in the 1920's and 1930's. Though not autobiographical, her surrealistic works introduce a woman's introspection into the many social changes of the day. Edith Branson was a significant contributor to the New York art scene both through her numerous exhibitions and in the roles she served as a director of the S...
