Breaking with Realism: Meditations on Emotion – NYC

Agora Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of Breaking with Realism, featuring the works of Marco Mendoza, Noelle Kristine, Maciej Marecki, Nancy Landauer, Rina Lazar, Alex Osborne, Sydnei SmithJordan, Joan Criscione, Iftah Geva, Nobuko Saji, Claudia Mayer-Mallenau, Vandana Nittoor, Philippe Thélin, Georges de Groot, Heesu Choi, Patricia Brintle, Marc Tremblay and Herluck Antoine Blémur.

The eighteen artists in this exhibition are each recognized for their own respective practices that offer a refreshing meditation on how variations in color, composition, and texture reflect the complexities of emotion. The exhibition pushes the boundaries of traditional realist painting, sculpture, and photography by juxtaposing imaginative, contemporary portraiture with dynamic, abstract works that recall themes of spirituality, humanity, and the natural world in piercing detail. Furthermore, each artist presents a variety of mediums, including but not limited to oil and acrylic on canvas, pastel, and collage that invite the viewer to contemplate the collective language of the human experience.

Breaking with Realism will open on September 2nd with an opening reception on September 7th from 6-8pm, and will remain open until September 22, 2017.

Exhibition Dates: Sept. 2  – Sept. 22, 2017

Chelsea International Fine Art Competition Exhibition: The Best of 2017 – NYC

Agora Gallery is pleased to present the 2017 selected artists of the Chelsea International Fine Art Competition. Now in its 32nd year, the competition has a rich history of recognizing exciting new talent from all over the world. This year’s participants display a growing social awareness, an eager curiosity of spatial and tonal questions, and outstanding technical skill.

Included are several incisive photographers who document contemporary urban, exurban, and completely wild places with compassion and respect. One selected sculptor gives life to outsized and fantastic shapes. There is a wide range of painting on display, including pieces whose abstraction is so subtle that it verges on something more like stylization. There is also a palpable return to hyperrealism, with several impeccably realized still lifes and portraits that dare the viewer to do a double-take. Among the displayed works is a feeling of rediscovery of the hand-wrought craft of art in an increasingly digital world.

The exhibition opens August 19, 2017 and runs through August 30, 2017 with an opening reception on Saturday, August 19 from 6-8 pm. Entrance is free.

Exhibition Dates: August 19  – August 30, 2017
