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

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.
