This June Agora Gallery will present three exhibitions that interrogate methods of visual communication for the modern world. Pathway to Abstraction features nine artists’ takes on the process of abstracting an image, moving from acrylic geometry through three-dimensional texturizing. Some retain a recognizable shape, some work with realistic colors – but all demonstrate the emotional power of combining the familiar and the fantastic. Mélange of Milieu is a joint exhibition including nineteen artists whose ways of focusing, editing, and exaggerating are all compelling in different ways. Kelley Millet: Free Falling / a solo exhibition brings together a collection of the New York artist’s works that display his expertise with layering paint, minimal color, and intuitive pattern-making.
These three exhibits touch upon abstraction as it manifests itself: in light, color, shape, and texture; heavily and gently; locally and internationally; and throughout all kinds of subject matter. The genre of abstraction is full of famous names, but the artists working within it today are as innovative and imaginative as ever. Agora Gallery is pleased to be able to bring together such a far-reaching survey.
All three exhibitions will run from June 14th, 2016 through July 5th, 2016. The opening reception will take place on the evening of June 16th from 6-8 pm. Entrance is free.
