The first fall exhibition of the year is coming to Agora Gallery. Masters of the Imagination: The Latin American Art Exhibition will be open from September 10, 2010 until October 1, 2010. The opening reception will take place on September 16, 2010. As always, entrance is free and art-lovers are warmly encouraged to visit this remarkable exhibition.
Masters of the Imagination remains a firm favorite on Agoraâ€™s annual calendar, tapping into an audience who are deeply touched by the dynamic atmosphere created by lively, energetic paintings. Love of life and its variety shines out of these works, spreading this sense of appreciation to all who see them. The audience will be able to feel the vitality of the artists and their view on the world, both that of their inner emotions and the physical structure which surrounds them and through which they move in their daily lives.
This collection of Latin American art holds hints and delicate suggestions of the rich cultural tradition which informs it, from the delightful forms portrayed to the dazzling colors employed by the artists. The influence of the geographic region and its accompanying heritage can be strongly felt, an important element of the worksâ€™ charm.
Yet there is also a distinctly contemporary flair to be found in this exhibition, as the talented artists whose work is being shown build on the experience of the past to show their own skills and approaches to spectacular effect.
This provides a great opportunity for viewers to experience the kind of fine art being developed in Latin America today. The best experience will be had by those who come willing to appreciate the works with not only their minds, but their hearts as well. Only then can you truly connect with the enchanting sensations of these remarkable works.
This exhibition coincides with Hispanic Heritage Month, the period dedicated to the remembrance and appreciation of the efforts and contributions of Spanish-speaking Americans to our country in diverse fields including literature, music and of course visual arts.
At the same time, a solo exhibition will be showing in Gallery II, our adjacent gallery space: Animassymbolism: The Conscious Paradigm of Fred Mou. The concept of this show centers around the philosophy of Fred Mou, which he explores and expresses in his work. Animassymbolism refers to the artist’s complex use of symbols which he makes a part of his representation of nature, thereby giving form to the mystery and wonder that surrounds us.
