Everybody Street Screening At Agora Gallery

The screening of Everybody Street on July 2nd was a resounding success; everybody who was anybody was there! Well, maybe not entirely everybody, but every available seat in the house was filled.

Most attendees arrived early to secure their spot with a trendy Agora Gallery wristband, and a good thing they did, as we filled up quickly!

Today at Agora Gallery, we were all pleasantly surprised by a visit from Karen Greville-Smith, who had exhibited with¬†us¬†in October 2014. Unfortunately, Karen hadn’t been able to visit the gallery during her exhibition, so this was a wonderful opportunity for us all to both meet for the first time and to catch up!

Karen was in New York City celebrating her thirtieth anniversary with her husband. In addition to a special trip to Tiffany’s, the two of them had been taking in a number of the sights when they popped into Agora Gallery, having just spent some of their afternoon on the¬†High Line. She was on a specific mission to take in plenty of artwork to get inspiration – not only for herself, but for the children and teens she works with.

Along with her work as a talented artist, Karen Greville-Smith uses her artistic skills to give back to the community. When she arrives back home to the UK, she will be taking on her tenth year as the Artist in Residence at a mental health facility. In this role, she works closely with young people from 12-18 years of age, providing them with short workshops in which they can express themselves artistically, learn to work together, and nurture their ideas and talent.

Agora Artists Pre-Reception Arrival Collage

In the few days leading up to the opening reception, we’ve been experiencing quite the “red carpet” style arrival of many of our artists, who all posed with their works, families, and gallery staff upon arrival.

It was a beautiful night of many familiar and new faces at Agora Gallery’s June 18th, 2015 opening reception. Heralding the shows In Reverie of Form, Spatial Articulation, and Sensorial Sensibilities, artists and guests gathered from all over the world on our two floors of gallery space.

Agora Gallery’s May 21st, 2015 Opening Reception

This May 21st, 2015¬†was a big night for Agora Gallery. That Thursday evening, we found ourselves welcoming a vast array of artists from around the world for five exhibitions, Sovereign Women / Femmes Soveraines, Portal of Enigma, Contemporary Perspectives, Sensorial Sensibilities, and Out From Down Under & Beyond. With so many artists from all over the globe (including, appropriately, a number of artists from Australia and New Zealand, who were featuring in “Out From Down Under & Beyond”), it was a truly delightful surprise that so many were able to fly out to New York to be present!
