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

Posted: April 11, 2017 20:14 Last Updated: | Olga Ku

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 run...

February 2017 Exhibitions: Plurality of Expression and Emerging Visions

Posted: December 28, 2016 07:43 Last Updated: | Olga Ku

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 Visi...

January 2017 exhibitions: Enigmatic Realms and Kaleidoscope of the Mind

Posted: November 29, 2016 21:58 Last Updated: | Olga Ku

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 eve...

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

Posted: October 03, 2016 20:12 Last Updated: | Olga Ku

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 photographer...

Wendy Gillespie and Idiosyncratic Expressions

Posted: September 14, 2016 19:09 Last Updated: | Olga Ku

This fall Agora Gallery is pleased to present Solo Exhibition: Wendy Gillespie and group exhibition Idiosyncratic Expressions. Wendy Gillespie paints landscapes that manage to be both highly detailed and impressionistic in their light touch. The works incorporate a mature sense of color and a classical artist’s sensitivity to distance and atmosphere. Gillespie’s versatile skills allow her to depict a wide range of water and land scenes, including tranquil lakes, churning oceans, grassy plains, sun-bathed orchards, and stately mountains. With Gillespie’s finely tuned observational paintings...

An Autumn of Adventure and Creativity at Agora Gallery

Posted: August 25, 2016 07:30 Last Updated: | Olga Ku

This September Agora Gallery will present three exhibitions that illustrate art’s ability to tell an ever-expanding range of stories in an almost limitless number of ways. In Interpretive Realms, nature in all its diversity is vividly captured and powerfully transformed through the views of five artists who, though they work in media ranging from photography to traditional Japanese art, all pursue the goal of building a strong personal statement from what they see in the world around them.   Masters of the Imagination presents the work of three women artists from Latin America, each of...

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. Figuratively Speaking is a wide-ranging collection of works that focus on form – not necessarily the human shape, although that is a favored and fruitful subject, but the compositional possibilities of angles and curves. 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...
