Solitary Spaces and Illumination – Exhibitions – NYC

This spring Agora Gallery is pleased to present two exhibitions highlighting new and groundbreaking voices in the fields of painting and photography. Solitary Spaces celebrates the individual dreamer forging ahead, with a collection of widely dissimilar pieces that represent each artist’s imaginary viewpoint. There are surreal portraits, impossible landscapes, and entirely abstract compositions. The eye picks out what is real and what is not – and must come to terms with the fact that it is harder to distinguish more often than not. Illumination: An Exhibition of Fine Art Photography features the latest in digital photography, with sweeping and unfamiliar landscapes, probing psychological portraits, and still lifes that border on postmodern non-representation. The exhibition will explore how artists borrow from the language of fine art and from the newest in technological capabilities to inform their photography in today’s art world, where more is possible than ever before.

Both exhibitions open on April 26th, 2016 and run through May 17th, 2016. The opening reception for both will be held Thursday, April 28th from 6-8 pm. Entrance is free.

Exhibition Dates: April 26, 2016 – May 17, 2016

Reception: Thursday April 28, 2016, 6:00pm – 8:00pm

Gallery Hours: Tues-Sat 11:00am – 6:00pm

May Art at Agora Gallery – NYC

The walls are really bursting with life with a total of four exhibitions at Agora Gallery. Max Werner’s solo exhibition demonstrates the appeal of spontaneity and allowing impulse to guide talent and experience, as well as the value of observation in creating art. In Out From Down Under & Beyond: Fine Art From Australia and New Zealand artists show works which have been influenced by the wonderful scenery and culture of their homelands, with breathtaking results. Contemporary Perspectives highlights the exciting and innovative nature of art today, with each artist bringing their unique point of view and feel for the zeitgeist to their work. The art of Portal of Enigma takes up the challenge posed to every artist by the enormous diversity and complexity of life and meets it head on, facing both mystery and confusion squarely and bringing from it enlightenment and energy.
