Divergent Realities: The world as it's never been seen
Agora Gallery is pleased to present Divergent Realities, a concentrated and vivacious group exhibition featuring six artists who could not be more different from one another. Three abstract artists are featured: one who builds up thick physical surfaces with his paint, one who uses texture to create trompe-l'oeil images, and one who uses patterns to create three-dimensional effects. All three poke at the boundaries between the picture plane and the viewer's own space. There is a watercolor painter who creates delicate, monochromatic portrayals of life's small details, and a landscape artist who depicts nature as dynamic, color-blocked patterns. A rigorously realistic pencil artist whose works mirror our world closely but represent completely personal experiences fills out the small group. All six artists have created an entire visual universe, complete with rules, possibilities, and impossibilities. These wildly diverse aesthetics are at their best when brought together; next to one another, each artist's unique point of view is thrown into sharp relief.
Divergent Realities begins November 8, 2016 and runs through November 30, 2016 with an opening reception on November 10 from 6-8 pm. Entrance is free.
