This December Agora Gallery presents two exhibitions that aim to plunge the viewer into new environments. Sensorial Perspectives is a collective exhibition that spans painting, photography, and mixed-media, all in the service of exploring art as something more than simply a visual medium. This experimentation can be seen in portraits in which realistic draftsmanship and neon colors have a playful back-and-forth, or photographs that present the world from the point of view of someone always in motion. Sound, touch, and motion are all evoked. Landscapes of the Mind collects six of the most innovative landscape artists working today from around the world. Through their eyes, mountains become textures slashes of saturated color, birds become lightning-quick dabs in the sky, and shadowy trees become stand-ins for people. Through oil, acrylic, photography, and spray paint, these artists seek to forge a different kind of map. The natural world and its animal inhabitants have never been portrayed with such empathy and imagination.
Both exhibitions begin December 3, 2016 and run through December 23, 2016 with a joint opening reception on December 8 from 6-8 pm. Entrance is free.
