Unbound Perspectives - Exploring Mediums and the World at Agora Gallery

Posted: August 11, 2016 08:31 Last Updated: | Olga Ku

Agora Gallery presents Unbound Perspectives, a group exhibition highlighting work that presents reality with heightened aesthetic possibilities. Bringing together no fewer than eighteen artists, the exhibition is an eclectic mixture of photography, painting, and sculpture. Some pieces present subtler, updated forms of surrealism: familiar objects and figures taken out of context and placed into new environments, or classic art historical tableaux with present-day icons swapped in. Other pieces are rooted in abstraction and approach the familiar from the opposite end of the spectrum. There ...

Color, Culture, and Art in NYC at Agora Gallery

Posted: June 30, 2016 10:05 Last Updated: | Olga Ku

Agora Gallery brings three bold group exhibitions with a global perspective to New York this July.

Dynamic Visions brings together artists of pinpointed vision: those people who can translate any image into their own visual language and are singularly capable of creating an atmosphere with their art. The French Perspective is a survey of the contemporary art scene in Franc...

A Summer of Inspiration at Agora Gallery

Posted: June 02, 2016 11:02 Last Updated: | Olga Ku

This June Agora Gallery will present three exhibitions that interrogate methods of visual communication for the modern world. Pathway to Abstraction features nine artists’ takes on the process of abstracting an image, moving from acrylic geometry through three-dimensional texturizing. Some retain a recognizable shape, some work with realistic colors – but all demonstrate the emotional power of combining the familiar and the fantastic. Mélange of Milieu is a joint exhibition including nineteen artists whose ways of focusing, editing, and exaggerating are all compelling in different ways. Ke...

Artist To Artist Interview...The why of becoming an artist

Posted: December 17, 2015 07:39 Last Updated: | Rex Stewart

For nearly fifty years, my mind and hands raced to create pieces that stirred the imagination of my viewers. It was never an accident that the skills I possessed were given to gloat over what I could or could not do; but to find clarity in this strange journey while creating subject matter that brought about the quest of -why? Every artist has a story or account relative to their existance. No two paths are alike. And yet, in the journey that's taken, there seem to be explosive egos that dictate the formalities of the creator. I found this to be perplexed during my early years because th...

Remembering in art the steamboat Alexander Hamilton

Posted: August 03, 2015 02:52 Last Updated: | Rex Stewart

After 35 years... The Hudson River Day Line was a unique steamboat service that operated on New York's Hudson River during the heyday of travel. It was an experience for thousands to ride these large vessels to each port of call from Albany to New York City during the 19th-20th centuries. The most memorable in contemporary times were the steamboats that many, whom in the final era of that time, remember all too well, which included the ROBERT FULTON, PETER STUYVESANT and ALEXANDER HAMILTON. The last mentioned steamboat is the focus of this writing. Built in 1923, she served as ...

Curating a Lifestyle: An Interview with Collector Ron Pizzuti

Posted: July 13, 2015 08:35 Last Updated: | Amelia & Jeff Jeffers

Ron Pizzuti is not easily intimidated. A successful real estate developer, Pizzuti possesses the perfect combination of tenacity and charm, with a straightforward nature that quickly fosters a sense of familiarity; traits that have undoubtedly contributed to the tremendous growth and reach of the company he founded nearly 40 years ago. However, the notoriously tough real estate industry, Pizzuti learned long ago, has nothing on the art world.​ From his earliest days in development, Pizzuti traveled - a lot. “I got tired of going to bars and cathedrals,” Ron says with a smile. “So, I ...

Mid-Century Modern Design — When interior designers refer to “Mid Century Modern” design, they are referring to an aesthetic style based around the idea of streamlining everyday life using technology that was immensely popular in the 1950’s and 1960’s in the United States and Europe. After World War II, the industrialized nations of the world believed that the future success of their governments were heavily dependent on their ability to implement and adapt to changing technologies, and began to place a high emphasis on engineering, mechanization, and computer science.
