Three Exciting Exhibitions at Agora Gallery – NYC

This April, Agora Gallery welcomes three exhibitions that explore the current state of the world by investigating the different voices coming from every corner of the globe and hearing what they have to say. In East Meets West, we take a look at the work that is coming from Asian nations. Though the works vary greatly in influence and aesthetic, they allow the viewer into a cultural immersion without ever leaving their backyard. In Forms and Formalities, we see the visions, observations, and inner dreams of artists from all walks of life. Agora Gallery also presents the solo exhibition of Nigerian artist Nonye Ikegwuoha, a world-traveled architect who has recently turned his vision towards the “dark, harrowing experiences of migrants.” His portraits uncover the death, disease, and displacement that these people have faced, using cubist techniques, earthen colors, and fascinating lines and forms.

The exhibitions open on April 1st, 2016 and runs until April 21st, 2016. The opening reception for all three will take place on the evening of Thursday, April 7, 2016. Entrance 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.

Open Call for Submissions from artists all over the USA for a juried exhibit, Wide Open 7, to be exhibited in the Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition (BWAC) gallery  – an 8,000 sf Civil War-era warehouse on the Red Hook waterfront.  The enormous space of the gallery affords us the opportunity to exhibit really huge work, and we welcome it.

The broad theme of “Wide Open 7” encompasses all the possibilities of knowledge and freedom and love – wide open spaces…arms wide open…eyes wide open – but as with all things, there is the inevitable opposite – wide open to attack…corruption…failure.

Deadline: August 29, 2015 – really AFFORDABLE ART SHOW – Call for Entries – NYC

The Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition (BWAC) is excited to announce our first really Affordable Art Show, a national juried show opening October 3, 2015.

Our juror is Carolyn Ramo, Executive Director of Artadia, a not-for-profit organization which has awarded over $3 million to more than 300 artists. Ramo was a partner at Taxter & Spengemann, a contemporary art gallery that focused on emerging artists, and the Production Director at David Zwirner gallery. Ms. Ramo has also worked at Nicole Klagsbrun Gallery and the Whitney Museum of American Art.

This is a selling show with art priced for anyone and everyone. Thousands of NY art lovers and collectors will see your work up close and personal. It is time to expand your collector base in NYC. To make it easy for new collectors, all work submitted must be for sale at $499 or less. You will get 75% of the selling price.

We really love art – in all media. As well as looking for skill in the use of a variety of materials, we look for how well that medium relates to the concept or movement, and how fully the artist’s intention or concept is presented and realized. The juror’s awards will reflect that artistic judgment. Virtually every medium is accepted including: Oil, Acrylic, Watercolor, Photography, Pastel, Drawing, Print, Mixed Media, Sculpture, Assemblage and Fabric.

Art-Filled August at Agora Gallery – NYC

August comes with two new exciting exhibitions at Agora Gallery. Idiosyncratic Expressions and Interpretative Realms present a collection of artists who turn the art world on its head. In Idiosyncratic Expressions, colors combine in unexpected ways, forms emerge from obscurity, and textures distort scenes into something wholly unique and important. Sharing the gallery, Interpretative Realms presents paintings that invite deep introspection, as these international artists present scenes of abstraction and familiarity, re-examining their subjects with their individual, invaluable perspectives.

The exhibitions open on July 31st and will run until August 20th, 2015. The opening reception will take place Thursday, August 6th, from 6-8 PM. The exhibitions and opening reception are open to the public.
