Event Description

Agora Gallery ventures deep into the imagination this May with three group exhibitions of extraordinary range. Portal to Dreams collects six daring artists, several of whom are painters playing with the limits of colors and shape in abstraction. There is also a digital artist who creates uniquely slow-paced animations and another who riddles traditional narrative scenes with intriguing gaps. Elemental Realms brings together a select group of artists with the objective of interrogating texture, both within and on top of the painted surface. A few different participants put the medium of paint through its paces: dabbing it, tossing it, cracking it, and layering it. One artist combines acrylic with gold leaf to create a new kind of physical texture that enters the viewer's space in a subtle way. In both of these shows, traditions are overturned and expectations are defied.

Illumination: An Exhibition of Fine Art Photography is an examination of the storytelling qualities of photography. Whether they're using surreal compositions, extreme close-up, unnaturally saturated colors, or pointed symbolism, these artists take digital photography to new heights.

All three exhibitions open May 19, 2017 and run through June 8, 2017 with a joint opening reception on May 25 from 6-8 pm. Entrance is free.

Exhibition Dates: May 19, 2017  – June 8, 2017
