Celebrate spring this year with the inspiring new exhibitions at Agora Gallery. Enjoy the intriguing and exhilarating works of one show, feel your senses tingle as you view the art in another and admire the wonderful art of New Zealand and Australia in a third. The exhibits open on May 18, 2012 and run until June 7, 2012. The opening reception will take place on Thursday May 24, 2012 and as always entrance is free and art lovers are warmly encouraged to attend.
In Out From Down Under & Beyond: Fine Art From Australia and New Zealand, you will be whisked away to worlds inspired by the cultural and natural heritage of the talented artists who combine their personal experiences with a shared understanding to produce works of art that speak to a wide-ranging audience. Visitors hoping for an insight into the art of New Zealand are in for a particular treat as Auckland’s Flagstaff Gallery has come to NYC and is presenting, at Agora, an exhibition of innovative art by New Zealand artists at the same time.
The artists in Landscapes of the Mind use their talent and the force of their convictions and ideas to create pieces that are both moving and demanding. They command our attention, hold our gaze, and encourage us to engage fully with the perspectives and concepts that are offered to us. Appealing, fascinating and unforgettable, these works will stay with you long after your visit.
The Portal of Tranquility displays pieces that will open your eyes and your mind, allowing you to appreciate the wonders of the world on a new level. Refreshingly direct and possessing the ability to stir your emotions and your senses, these works will leave an impression you’ll be happy to retain.
