Contemporary Perspectives
April 1 - April 21, 2017 Reception: Thursday April 6, 2017 6-8 PM

This April Agora Gallery presents Contemporary Perspectives, a new group exhibition that aims to update and illuminate even the most time-tested subject matter. Contemporary Perspectives features only six artists: three landscape painters, two experts in botanicals, and one portraitist. There are romantic gardens and rolling hills depicted as energized abstract patterns, and extremely detailed yet entirely imaginary forests rendered as dramatic dream worlds. There are realistic figures placed in undefined, atmospheric spaces. Of the two kinds of florals included, one uses hyperrealism and irregular canvases to forge a new path while the other juxtaposes rigorous detail and deliberately unfinished draftsmanship. Finally, the featured portraits focus on a historically invisible group: women of color. Contemporary Perspectives pays homage to art history while relentlessly seeking its relevance in today's world.
