Exhibition: Beyond Borders; Portals of Perception
The days may be getting shorter and darker, but sparkle and light can still be found at Agora Gallery, particularly with the wonderful new exhibitions this October. Admire the vision and verve of Canadian artists in one exhibition, and explore the thoughtful sensitivity and passionate power in another. The exhibitions begin on October 9, 2012 and continue until October 30, 2012, with an opening reception on the evening of Thursday October 11, 2012.Â As always, art lovers are warmly welcomed to attend.
Beyond Borders: an Exhibition of Fine Art from Canada presents art that displays a winning combination of spontaneous, joyful appreciation of the world and measured, considered deliberation. Perfectly balanced and constructed to appeal to the most profound elements and emotions of human thought and experience, the works have the ability to appeal to a wide range of tastes and preferences. These talented Canadian artists make clear the tremendous impact that skill, creativity and ingenuity can have in creating compelling, emotive art.
The works of Portals of Perception almost seem to extend beyond the confines of the physical space they inhabit, being so beguilingly immersive as to exert their influence well beyond the material nature of each individual piece. Delightfully close to lived experience, they yet manage to delve into the nature of understanding, encouraging a similar broadening of mind and comprehension in their spellbound audience. Through being not only entirely open to all the nuances and complexities of the world around them, but also judicious in their areas of concentration and focus, they are able to produce works which are wholly true to their own unique perspective while also reaching out to resonate with and even influence that of their viewers.
