Three wonderful exhibitions are coming to Agora Gallery next week. Marvel at the power of light and technology that make the gorgeous photography of one exhibition possible, appreciate the intensity and sensitivity of the work of another, and revel in art as part of life in the third. The exhibitions open on November 2, 2011 and run until November 23, 2011. The opening reception is on November 3, 2011, and as always art enthusiasts are invited to attend and meet some of the artists responsible for these memorable creations.
Altered States of Reality: an Exhibition of Analog and Digital Photography is a consistently popular exhibition, with viewers enjoying the creative and innovative ways in which these fine art photographers deploy their tools to capture evocative and meaningful images that express their personal perception of the world as it is today. Appealing, engaging and sometimes haunting, these intelligent perspectives on how we live and the elements that make up our lives are sure to stay in your mind long after the exhibition.
Pathway to Abstraction focuses on the work of artists who have shown interest in the edges of abstract art, while retaining a firm grasp on the forms and details of figurative creation as well. The results are dazzling combinations of colors, tones and shapes that explore a variety of subjects and ideas. Each artist approaches their personal challenges in their own, unique way, producing art that reflects their judgments and thoughts as well as their observations and hopes.
In The Persistence of Form, the audience are invited to become involved in the artistic process, lending their own interpretations and recollections to the experience of viewing art. These artists have delved into their past and present to conjure up a wealth of images and concepts that have been transformed into a visual delight that contains considerable charm and force and expresses range enough to captivate a widely varying group.
