This October, let beauty into your life with the upcoming exhibitions at Agora Gallery. One exhibition introduces the subtle yet intense art of talented contemporary Canadian artists, while another focuses on work that invigorates and inspires. Opening on October 4, 2013 and continuing until October 24, 2013, with an opening reception on the evening of Thursday October 10, these are shows you’re not going to want to miss.
In Beyond Borders: an Exhibition of Fine Art From Canada, viewers are presented with the diverse, delightful and emotionally powerful works of fine artists from across the border. Although the artists share some background, and an appreciation for the strengths and natural wonders of their county, each one develops their impressions and associations in unique and moving ways. This combination makes for an exhibition which is intriguingly cohesive, yet in which every work of art has its own particular message and motivation.
In Reverie of Form features the work of artists who use a number of mediums and styles to produce art that reflects their own individual creativity and impulses. Enjoyable and full of energy, these works also reflect the joy that their creators felt as they formed them, and that they infused into each piece, to share that distinctive emotion with their audience. Working on a number of emotional levels, the pieces manage to transcend specific experience to speak to us as humans, with all the complexity and depth that that implies.
The artwork in Elements of Abstraction skillfully blend the ephemeral, enticing nature of a dream with the passionate and persuasive feeling that comes with reality – a reality which each artist perceives differently, and which they present to their audience in a variety of compelling ways. Inspiring and imaginative, these creations communicate with us yet also give the impression of something left unsaid, which the eager viewer must uncover for themselves.
