Fill your February with a feeling of warmth, light and inspiration – take the art of our exhibitions into your hearts and minds. The days might be dark and the nights long, but this art will make you feel that spring is just around the corner, bringing hope and new life. The exhibitions open on February 7, 2013 and will continue until February 27, 2013. The opening reception will take place on the evening of Thursday, February 7, 2013. Entrance is free, so come and bring a friend!
Idiosyncratic Expressions showcases the fascinatingly diverse ways in which artists respond to their environments and employ art as a means of communication and reflection. The works are utterly honest, with themselves and with their audience, but manage to combine this frank appraisal of what is with a heartening impression of what can be, adding a sense of optimism to the whole. Lively, lovely and sometimes even inspired, this is art at its most compelling and persuasive.
The artists whose works are presented in Degrees of Abstraction delve into every aspect of life, investigating and celebrating what they find. This inquisitive charm is reflected in their art, which provides a privileged window into a new and delightful way of seeing. Dazzling in their conviction and the courage with which they approach their subject matter, these creations are a symbol of what we love most about the most creative forms of expression.
Because February is Heart Month, we’re doing something a little special for these exhibitions. Some of the artists in the exhibits have created artworks especially for Agora’s ‘Art to Heart‘ event, and these will be included in the show. All of the proceeds from the sales of these works will go to the Children’s Heart Foundation.
