The Saturated Palette and Portals of Perception
Mar 10-Mar 30
This March two group exhibitions of outstanding range come to Agora Gallery. Portals of Perception features a small, select group of painters who create works of fascinating detail. There are cityscapes made of buildings with real personalities, abstract texture-based pieces that turn acrylic paint into physical patterns, beautiful watercolor visions of the seaside, snapshots of modern urban spaces, and portraits of women who refuse to fit into any mold. All are rooted in a particular reality almost clear enough to reach out and touch. The Saturated Palette, by contrast, includes ten artists and offers a far-seeing look at the way color can be used in fine art. Color is used as an accent, as a suggestion, as a main subject, and thrillingly as an exclamation point. It is bold here and subtle there, straightforward in some works and revealed only in contrast in others. For these imaginative artists working in paint, pastel, and encaustic, the possibilities are endless. Both exhibitions run March 10, 2017 through March 30, 2017 with an opening reception on the night of Thursday, March 16 from 6-8 pm. Entrance is free. Exhibition Dates: March 10, 2017 March 30, 2017 Reception: Thursday, March 16, 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_3_10_2017.aspx Featured Artists: Portals of Perception Colin Grant Sydnei SmithJordan Ron Turner Nancy Holleran Shabnam Yousefian Tanja Skytte The Saturated Palette Olivia Kapoor Ping Lian Yeak Vanitira Jessica Watson-Thorp Susana Rapallo Han-Yuan Yu Maria Fernandez Gold Irina Goryunova Chen Jin About Agora Gallery Agora Gallery is a contemporary fine art gallery located in the heart of Chelseas fine art district in New York.

Spatial Fluidity and Contemporary Perspectives
Apr 01-Apr 21
This April Agora Gallery embraces the unexpected with a trio of forward-thinking exhibitions. Spatial Fluidity features nine artists who blur the line between two-dimensional and three-dimensional art, be it through introducing new media or using traditional materials in unique ways. There are pieces that experiment with mixed textures, some that use distinctive and asymmetric surfaces, and some that even incorporate light. Contemporary Perspectives is a group exhibition that marries classic subject matter with new styles, such as romantic botanicals portrayed in energized, saturated colors or traditional portraiture that sheds light on historically overlooked people. This exhibition looks at modernity from all sides in drawing, painting, and mixed media. Both of these exhibitions open April 1, 2017 and run through April 21, 2017 with a joint opening reception on Thursday, April 6 from 6-8 pm. Entrance is free.
