Portal to Dreams, Elemental Realms, and Illumination: An Exhibition of Fine Art Photography – NYC

Wojciech Tut Chechliński,Wisdom,Oil on Canvas,46''x32''

Agora Gallery ventures deep into the imagination this May with three group exhibitions of extraordinary range. Portal to Dreams collects six daring artists, several of whom are painters playing with the limits of colors and shape in abstraction. There is also a digital artist who creates uniquely slow-paced animations and another who riddles traditional narrative scenes with intriguing gaps. Elemental Realms brings together a select group of artists with the objective of interrogating texture, both within and on top of the painted surface. A few different participants put the medium of paint through its paces: dabbing it, tossing it, cracking it, and layering it. One artist combines acrylic with gold leaf to create a new kind of physical texture that enters the viewer’s space in a subtle way. In both of these shows, traditions are overturned and expectations are defied.

Illumination: An Exhibition of Fine Art Photography is an examination of the storytelling qualities of photography. Whether they’re using surreal compositions, extreme close-up, unnaturally saturated colors, or pointed symbolism, these artists take digital photography to new heights.

All three exhibitions open May 19, 2017 and run through June 8, 2017 with a joint opening reception on May 25 from 6-8 pm. Entrance is free.

Exhibition Dates: May 19, 2017  – June 8, 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.

Exhibition Dates: October 14, 2016 – November 3, 2016

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.

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.

A Must-See Examination of Humanity: Collective Exhibitions at Agora Gallery – NYC

The dynamism of the world around us comes to the forefront at Agora Gallery this March in two collective exhibitions. The show The Essence of Abstraction examines the nature of human understanding, stripping away the representational to get at the core emotions and concepts of a subject. This group of international artists comes together to create a show of personal interpretations of abstraction. The exhibit Mélange of Milieu takes the opposite approach. Focused on the world around them, this group of artists has devoted themselves to the details of the everyday, representing them from the realistic to the surreal. These intricate and interesting works are sure to make the viewer reexamine the outside world. Together, the shows play off each other: the representational versus the abstract, the internal versus external. This pair of shows is a must-see examination of humanity.
The exhibitions open on March 6th and run until March 26th, 2015. The opening reception, which will take place on Thursday, March 12th from 6-8 PM, will be open to the public.

Beauty of Color, Line and Form at Agora this October – NYC

As summer’s heat subsides and the warm smells of pumpkin and spice break through the cool, crisp air, Agora Gallery opens its doors to new exhibitions of exceptional note. This October, you’ll find a refreshing and diverse selection of work by talented artists from all over the globe. In Beyond Borders: an Exhibition of Fine Art From Canada, contemporary Canadian artists demonstrate their skill as focused through the natural majesties of their country and its cultural influence. Divergent Realities brings forth the work of artists whose close observation of the world acts as a catalyst for the impulses of their own interpretation. In Modalities of Expression the audience is introduced to the richly varied ways in which artists choose to give form to their inner visions and ideas, and the beguiling charm that these forms possess. George Tsatsos: EU-TOPIAS presents the work of a lifelong artist who only recently began to share his creations with others. An explosion of color, geometry, and detail, his paintings allude to greats like Escher and Haring just as much as they forge their own chapter in art history.

However, the exhibit is given a coherence and clarity by the consistent and thorough marriage of detail with spontaneity, so that every element of every piece works together to form a dazzling whole.

Celebrate Spring in Style with Invigorating Art at Agora – NYC

Starting march 28th, Agora Gallery offers a combination of exhibitions sure to stir even the heart of the most jaded gallery-goer.
East Meets West: An Exhibition of Fine Art from Asia brings beautiful, elegant and richly varied contemporary Asian art to New York, with a range of mediums, styles and influences.
In Pulse of Abstraction, the viewer is treated to artwork which seems to breathe a sense of life, energy and excitement. Both joyful and realistically contemplative, these pieces demonstrate the emotive ability of abstract work.
Sensorial Perspectives presents the creations of artists whose work reflects and also elevates the world we all know, by connecting the viewer to the beauty-conscious, sensitive point of view of the artist.

In addition, the exhibition New York City 2014: Synchronicity will be taking place upstairs at Agora Gallery’s third floor gallery. The striking works in this exhibit give regular gallery-goers the chance to revisit the work of artists who have shown at Agora in the past and take note of the ways in which their art has developed, while newcomers on the scene can take the opportunity to enjoy a collection of artworks that explore diverse media, styles and aspects of our universe.

Fantastic February Art at Agora | NYC

In Figuratively Speaking, talented artists present us with a vision of life that sparks with energy, interest and an undeniable and irresistible sense of humor. Lively, lovely and with a perfectly balanced aesthetic appeal, these works speak to us on a number of levels, engaging and rewarding our attention. Elemental Realms displays art invested with an unusual level of passion and intensity that animates every piece and makes the show impossible to ignore or forget. The result will make the viewer feel as though they are rediscovering their own potential and that of the world around them.

As part of our commitment to help art give back to the community, Agora Gallery is delighted to be celebrating American Heart Month with our Art to Heart initiative, in which 10% of our proceeds from the sale of artwork in the February exhibition will be donated to The Children’s Heart Foundation.
