Expanding Expectations: Portal to Enigma, Persistence of Form, and The Fire Within
Apr 25-May 16
This spring Agora Gallery presents a trio of exhibitions that elevate tradition. The group exhibition Portal to Enigma takes on abstraction, with participating artists depicting people, nature, and everyday life through various aesthetic lenses. Some play with color, some play with pattern, some even attempt to turn the invisible visible and play with time. There are also pieces that are purely non-representational studies in repetition, brushstroke, and tone contrasts. A smaller collective exhibition, Persistence of Form, seeks to tease more out of the realist style. The featured work runs the gamut from hyperrealistic to dreamily idealized. The exhibition evokes an incredible variety of emotions using forms and symbols that are easily recognizable. The gallerys solo exhibition, The Fire Within: A Solo Exhibition of Ceramics by Susan Kadish, is a celebration of sculptor Susan Kadishs deep knowledge of ceramic techniques and cultural curiosity. Kadishs body of work includes firing applications from all over the world, and representative figures as well as vessels. Her imagination is as impressive as her technical range. All three exhibitions open on April 25, 2017 and run through May 16, 2017, with an opening reception on April 27 from 6-8 pm. Entrance is free.
