Unbound Perspectives and The Elixir of Color: Contemporary Conversations
Jun 10-Jun 30
This June Agora Gallery presents a pair of exhibitions that generate a unique and essential dialogue between them. Unbound Perspectives, a group exhibit featuring thirteen artists from all over the world, presents a holistic look at the current state of contemporary art. From ink to photography to wood inlay, Unbound Perspectives examines the way image making has changed just in the last few years - perhaps even in the last few minutes. It is an exhibition on the cutting edge. The Elixir of Color is a solo showcase for the remarkable body of work of painter Sherry Rinderer. Though Rinderers pieces tend to share some characteristics, including a degree of abstraction and an outsized scale, her approach varies as widely as the thirteen styles on display in Unbound Perspectives. She is interested in the interplay of textures with one painting, and in the directionality of line in another. In one she layers colors with the softness of an Impressionist in another she color-blocks her canvas as jarringly as any De Stijl painter. Rinderer is both a chameleon and an auteur. Both exhibitions open June 10 and run through June 30, 2017 with a joint opening reception on Thursday, June 15 from 6-8 pm. Entrance is free. Exhibition Dates: June 10 June 30, 2017 Reception: Thursday, June 15,2017, 6:00pm - 8:00pm Gallery Hours: Tues-Sat 11:00am 6:00pm Gallery Location: 530 West 25th St, Chelsea, New York Event URL: http://www.agora-gallery.com/collectivecatalog/Collective_6_10_2017.aspx Featured Artists: Unbound Perspectives Stephen Najda Johanna Wray Maribel Matthews Saskia Weishut-Snapper Ken Wada Vinod More Gita Levy Alexander Adam Shifra Jolanta Talaikiene Josefina Wendel Carlsson Claudia C Forero Carmen Flix The Elixir of Color Sherry Rinderer About Agora Gallery Agora Gallery is a contemporary fine art gallery located in the heart of Chelseas fine art district in New York.

Sensorial Realities: Voyages Onward
Jul 05-Jul 25
In Sensorial Realities, Agora Gallerys new group exhibition, every canvas on the wall is a portal to a different world. The ten artists featured here offer some of the most seductive alternative universes a viewer can hope for, whether its a reinterpretation of Gilded Age portraiture or a compression of twenty-first century concerns into a surreal landscape. They create spaces out of oil, acrylic, stone, ceramic, and mixed media which break down barriers and open up new ideas. Some pieces on display are outright landscapes. There are stripped-down paintings of endless plains, which are made inviting by simplifying the brushstrokes yet unknowable by taking away the horizon line. There are scenes of single people amongst their own place in the land - at once less intimidating but more psychologically fraught. There are classic views of merry seas and beautiful gardens that are made contemporary with their exaggerated colors and forceful compositions. Then there are the worlds of another kind: probing portraits, abstracted color fields, and symbol-laden tableaux. Sensorial Realities opens July 5 and runs through July 25, 2017 with an opening reception Thursday, July 6 from 6 - 8 pm. Entrance is free.
