Sensorial Realities: Voyages Onward – NYC

In Sensorial Realities, Agora Gallery’s new group exhibition, every canvas on the wall is a portal to a different world. The nine artists featured here offer some of the most seductive alternative universes a viewer can hope for, whether it’s a reinterpretation of Gilded Age portraiture or a compression of twenty-first century concerns into a surreal landscape. They create spaces out of oil, acrylic, stone, ceramic, and mixed media which break down barriers and open up new ideas.

Some pieces on display are outright landscapes. There are stripped-down paintings of endless plains, which are made inviting by simplifying the brushstrokes yet unknowable by taking away the horizon line. There are scenes of single people amongst their own place in the land – at once less intimidating but more psychologically fraught. There are classic views of merry seas and beautiful gardens that are made contemporary with their exaggerated colors and forceful compositions. Then there are the “worlds” of another kind: probing portraits, abstracted color fields, and symbol-laden tableaux.

Sensorial Realities opens July 5 and runs through July 25, 2017 with an opening reception Thursday, July 6 from 6 – 8 pm. Entrance is free.

Exhibition Dates: July 5  – July 25, 2017

February 2017 Exhibitions: Plurality of Expression and Emerging Visions – NYC

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 Visions also features a vast range of artists, with an emphasis on technical exploration. One artist creates his paintings by cutting up and repurposing panels painted by other people, while another creates landscapes by painting layers of dynamic, forceful strips of color.

The magic of both exhibitions is dependent on the diversity of the work on display. Only when placed side by side do the images fully reveal how many little decisions and gestures go into their creation. With Plurality of Expression and Emerging Visions, Agora Gallery presents a deep study on both the mind and hand of the artist.

Both exhibitions begin January 21, 2017 and runs through February 10, 2017 with an opening reception on January 26 from 6-8 pm. Entrance is free.

Exhibition Dates: January 21, 2017 – February 10, 2017

Wendy Gillespie and Idiosyncratic Expressions

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 on one hand, the gallery will also feature a group exhibition of exceptional transformative agility in Idiosyncratic Expressions. These cutting-edge interpreters offer surreal visions of people walking up walls, untethered shapes floating through space, and real-world landmarks filtered through bold colors and flattened perspectives. Figures, objects, and terrains are all reimagined. Through painting and sculpture, this group exhibition showcases some of the strongest and most precise artistic visions in the contemporary landscape.

Both exhibitions will open on October 14th, 2016 and run through November 3rd, 2016 with a joint opening reception on Thursday, October 20 from 6-8 PM. Admission is free.

Color, Culture, and Art in NYC at Agora Gallery

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 France that takes the viewer through the photography, abstraction, and surrealism making waves today. Together, this collection of group exhibits offers a uniquely varied look at some of the most exciting artists currently working – all around the world.

All three exhibitions open July 8th, 2016 and run through July 28th. There will be a reception open to the public on Thursday July 14th, from 6pm to 8pm. Admission is free.

A Journey of Epic Proportions: “From Here to There” – NYC

Seventeen artists collaborate in the exhibition From Here to There to bring a New York audience on a magnificent journey of self-discovery, expression, and realization. Buzzing in energy, color, form, and texture, the works on display hint at real worlds while obscuring just enough to direct the viewer’s experience and effectively control the conversation. Abstractions flourish across canvas, while figures bend and transform before the viewers’ eyes. Varying on the scale of fiction and reality, the artworks featured tell a unique story of humanity, nature, and society in inventive ways. Most of all, however, they tell a story of movement and change: making this an exhibition that truly takes you from one state of mind to somewhere completely new and exciting.

Agora Gallery opens its doors for public viewing of this exhibition on March  8th  with a reception on Thursday March 10th, from 6pm to 8pm. Admission is free.

Fragmented Reality: An Exhibition in NYC

With gusto and energy, Agora Gallery’s exhibition Fragmented Reality boasts over one hundred artworks by twenty artists. Angela Di Bello and her team have curated a remarkable exhibition which stages an interrogation of the dynamic balance of feminine and masculine energies while eschewing both romanticism and politics. Instead it solicits contemplation of three focused concepts: the interpretation of humans and animals within a shared environment; portraiture and abstract landscapes; and opposing forces, such as happiness and sadness, pleasure and pain. Presiding over the stunning visual space, the participating artists have conjured an airy grace from an immense application of bright colors and mixed media which all come together effortlessly in this comprehensive exhibition of fine art.

Agora Gallery opens its doors for public viewing of this exhibition on February 12th with a reception on Thursday February 18th, from 6pm to 8pm. Admission is free.

Telling Many Stories: Plurality of Expression – NYC

In the exhibition Plurality of Expression, eight artists draw from realism, surrealism, and complete abstraction to present exciting worlds of color, emotion, and passion. We see photographs alongside paintings, each of which tell a compelling story, each with deep emotional impact. Whether featuring figures, still lifes, surreal patterns, or landscapes, the artists have captured a distinct message in their composition, one that tells the impact of human life, interactions, and natural elements. Not only are the works passionate and expressive, they are undoubtedly extraordinary feats in aesthetic and color.

The exhibition opens on January 19, 2016 and runs until February 9, 2016. The opening reception will take place on the evening of Thursday, January 21, 2016. Entrance is free.

The Physical and the Temporal: Two Shows at Agora Gallery of Form & Context – NYC

In two exhibitions at Agora Gallery, The Persistence of Form and The Manifestation of Milieu, we are forced to contemplate both our individuality and what ties us to the world around us. In The Persistence of Form, a talented collection of painters and sculptors combine efforts to explore physicality: whether in the form of humans, wildlife, or man-made structures. These artists draw from a variety of styles and backgrounds in order to present their subjects with great care and extraordinary energy. Neighboring in the gallery, the exhibition The Manifestation of Milieu explores what lies beneath and behind the subject. Environments, whether geographical, temporal, or conceptual, fill the walls in staggering explorations of color and energy. Together, the two exhibitions feed off of each other to present a fully formed story about what it means to exist physically within a world, and what it means for a world to exist without physicality.

The exhibitions open on December 1st and will run until December 22nd, 2015. The opening reception will take place Thursday, December 3rd, from 6-8 PM. The exhibition and opening reception are open to the public.

Three Shows at Agora Gallery Question Expression and Interpretation – NYC

This November, Agora Gallery will introduce three new exhibitions that question how we see ourselves and the world around us.

Conversations and Color Revolutions: Two New Exhibitions in NYC

Aside

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 manipulations of color to a variety of subjects, the featured artists add their thumbprint to familiar and foreign scenes to establish worlds of their own.

The exhibitions open on July 7th and will run until July 28th, 2015. The opening reception will take place Thursday, July 9th, from 6-8 PM. The exhibitions and opening reception are open to the public.

Bodies and Spaces: Two Collective Exhibitions at Agora Gallery – NYC

Bodies and Spaces: Two Collective Exhibitions at Agora Gallery

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 geometry to completely transform their notion of space. With a variety of techniques, each artist allows individual elements of their works to latch onto the viewer’s preconceptions to redefine the canvases and even the rooms they occupy. In this regard, the viewer travels from works as if traveling in time, through space, and between nations.

The exhibitions open on June 12th and will run until July 2nd, 2015. The opening reception will take place Thursday, June 18th, from 6-8 PM. The exhibitions and opening reception are open to the public.

Exhibition Dates: June 12, 2015 – July 2, 2015

Reception: Thursday June 18, 2015, 6:00pm – 8:00pm
