Celebrate the summer with art that helps your heart to sing and reminds you of all the beauty and cause for joy that there is in the world. Agora Gallery‘s upcoming exhibitions begin on June 28, 2013 and continue until July 19, 2013. The exhibition reception will take place on the evening of Thursday, July 11, 2013. Entrance is free and art lovers are enthusiastically encouraged to attend and enhance their evening and their mood by exposure to these memorable pieces of art.
The French Perspective: Contemporary Art from France brings the elegance, passion and intelligent sensitivity of contemporary French art to New York. Delightfully infused with a strong sense of self, these works explore concepts such as identity, environment and the artistic process. The result is a compelling collection of works that demand considered attention, and reward it with a rich, emotive burst of feeling and thought-provoking intelligence.
In Pathway to Abstraction we are introduced to the daring and diverse art of artists who draw on all of their experiences and interests to form fully developed, immersive works of art. Examining layers of consciousness, intention and imagination, they bring their unique outlooks to bear on what they see and what they know, creating something fresh and captivating that seems to be on the brink of inducting us into the secrets of existence and ideas.
The works in Sensorial Realms are full of the lively energy and thoughtful honesty that allows art to touch the hearts of those who see it. With a commanding presence that combines with the artists’ skill to leave an indelible impression on viewers, these pieces demand the consideration and contemplation that they deserve. Often light-hearted, this hopeful feeling in no way detracts from the more serious concepts that many of the pieces touch on, and in which they intend to enlist the viewer’s interest.
