Artist Testimonials

Since it was established in 1984, Agora Gallery has been dedicated to connecting artists with art collectors and actively promoting artists in the New York art scene. Below are some of the comments from our artists.

I had a very positive first experience and can attest to the excellent work carried out by the competent Agora staff. 

I felt that the staff got well involved with my needs and requests, ready to solve problems and doubts. 

I recommend Agora's services to my circle of relations.

E. Eloy

I don´t have too much experience about showing my work in NY; this was my first time, and I am happy!

I like how professionally the gallery works. Angela and all the staff make me feel very comfortable and very well supported. All the people I invite to the opening were very impressed by all the artists.

P. Mazza

The exhibition was very well attended. It felt like one big family. The exceptionally receptive and communicative staff were extremely helpful throughout the whole process. 

It's been a pleasure and quite an experience and has made me aware of more than just producing art. Thank you to the whole Agora team and Angela in particular. I look forward to the next show. 

V. Parambi

The staff is truly professional. The gallery is amazing, and the people who came to the exhibition were the people I was expecting to see: curators and art dealers! Great illumination: clean, cozy, and great taste of environment. They gave all the things they promised during the time before the exhibition.

It's a gallery that knows how art runs in the market. Your art is safe with Agora.


My experience with Agora has been nothing short of excellent and I'm pleased that Elizabeth reached out to me. I signed up with Agora to show my paintings in New York for exposure purposes and to have this on my record. I felt that all of the work was well spaced, hung at appropriate levels and was generally well-lit. 

All of my questions and concerns were addressed quickly and professionally. Everyone was extremely responsive and well-organized.

M. Christidis

The opening reception was buzzing, and it made for a great evening. In addition, I received mail from people who saw the exhibit while passing by and were attracted by the arrangement of the artwork. It is a space that is so accessible to the general public, and with the beautiful arrangement of the artworks, all the colors made it a magnet for the passersby.

I love my relationship with Agora. I have learned so much and have become a better artist, learning a lot about the business of art as a result. Agora is family.

P. Brintle

Participating in the exhibition "Interpretative Realms" at the Agora Gallery in New York was an amazing experience. The whole team is very professional and friendly. Having an exhibit in New York is certainly the dream of every artist. New York is an amazing city and one of the most important art centers in the world.

L. Benaglia Nones

Being part of Agora Gallery has definitely catapulted me into another level. From an unknown artist to a great start in New York City, and all thanks to Ms. Angela Di Bello and all of the great staff up there. It was a very memorable experience to say the least.  

N. Solis

Exhibiting at the Agora has been both an inspirational and an extremely enjoyable experience in many different ways.
I found the gallery itself a wonderful, wonderful space in which to show my work. Both the ground floor and upper floor are bright, light and spacious, with plenty of room for each painting and each artist. 
The atmosphere is calming yet edgy. The layout is inviting, not intimidating. I particularly like the feeling of walking into different rooms of art, all housed under one roof, not knowing what will be found round the next corner.
The reception itself was such a pleasure. The hours slipped away so fast and I was slightly overwhelmed by the positive response to my work. So many interesting people, delightful people from all over the world, seemed to connect with my art. My seascapes seemed to evoke memories of personal experiences so, although inspired by my passion for North Devon, they reminded viewers of Maine, Boston, Florida. The fact that something in my work could be appreciated by people from all over the world meant everything to me.
One of the reasons that this experience has been so enjoyable is because of the staff. Right from the outset, everyone has been so professional and so helpful. Agora combines refinement with a warmth that exudes from its staff members.

S. Lockett

First of all, having my artwork presented in New York City at Agora Gallery has been amazing. It is one of my proudest achievements of my life thus far to have shown my artwork in New York. It's enriching because it is also encouraging me to keep going, to keep pushing myself to be an artist. I think for a while that has always felt like a far-off dream, but this milestone is beginning to make that dream feel like a reality.
Secondly, the professional team has always been very welcoming and wonderful to me. I am especially grateful for how patient everyone always is with all of my endless questions throughout the preparation process.  

I have been inspired to pursue my art even more after this experience. I am beginning to really believe in myself and in the fact that I can be everything I have always wanted to be!

K. Hartley

I personally delivered my paintings on June 3, and met with Angela, who took time out of her busy schedule to spend some time with me and answer my questions. She was very helpful and informative. I found her to be a warm and genuine lady.
The opening reception was wonderful,  the gallery space beautifully set up, and the varied works where impressive. The Agora team was very welcoming, and I enjoyed speaking with all team members and fellow artists.

Seeing my art displayed in a gallery in New York City is both surreal and a dream come true.

My overall experience has been wonderful, and since I've been with Agora, I have seen a more positive response to my art. It has been both inspirational and a confidence booster.

A. Cignola

My whole experience with exhibiting at Agora Gallery has been so positive starting with the high quality and attractive promotional materials and the impressive list of over 100 PR listings prior to the launch.

I was very warmly welcomed by all at Agora and I couldn't have been more impressed with the exhibition space, layout and lighting.  I was delighted with Angela's expert commentary on my artist video and the footage from opening night.

M. Endersby

My experience with Agora Gallery has been very positive. The staff are dedicated and professional. The promotional materials and the Art-Mine site have given me a greater exposure to the art scene, and have provided me with new exhibition opportunities in the U.S. and abroad. 
I feel very fortunate to have been selected for representation by Agora Gallery. Its reputation and location, in the heart of New York City, made this a pivotal decision for my career as an artist.
I'm also very grateful to the director and the writing staff for "seeing" my art and understanding my vision.

I. Johnson

My thoughts are still full of my New York adventure and the wonderful experience of having my artwork exhibited in a lovely gallery in such a vibrant and edgy city! 
I must say my whole experience of working with everyone at Agora Gallery has been very positive. Agora staff have shown a sympathetic and 'pastoral' attitude to us artists (which at times must seem like herding cats!), and this is combined with a high level of professionalism and attention to detail that is needed to put on successful shows. 
I found it very interesting and stimulating to see the work of different artists from around the world - a sort of reality check for my own work - and lots of inspiration for future work.
I have to say that, spatially, the layout and lighting of the gallery is very sympathetic, in the sense that the work of individual artists can be 'glimpsed' as soon as you enter the gallery space from the elevator. This 'entices' you to explore the niches and alcoves where each individual's artwork can be accessed fully.
All in all, I have come home with vibrant memories and an art experience that has jolted me out of my comfort zone and made me think of new paths for my art practice.
Many thanks to everyone at Agora Gallery for creating this opportunity for me.

L. Kouzmin

Having been used to playing a large part in organizing my own and others' exhibitions in the past, it is always a great relief when that work taken out of my hands! And an absolute pleasure to see such a busy opening night.

I think the most valuable aspect of the whole experience was meeting a whole different potential client/buyer base. I generally found the New Yorkers to be very chatty and inquisitive. 
We certainly felt welcomed by everybody, and it certainly was a treat to see what the gallery scene of New York has to offer.

S. Yallope

Overall I found it a very positive experience: all of the staff is very professional, very helpful and very friendly. I found the turnout at the opening absolutely amazing; not only in the number of people who came, but the great variety of people who were truly interested in the art. It was thrilling to walk out of a beautiful gallery in Chelsea knowing my work was hanging on their walls AND that I had sold, as well!

M. Lassen

I have really enjoyed showing my artwork at Agora Gallery. I had always wanted to show in New York City and Chelsea certainly is the hub of the New York gallery scene. I also found that Agora Gallery's PR about my show was very beneficial for me. It caused an upscale magazine, Slice, to do a great article on my art which led to a contract with Kasum Gallery here in Oklahoma City. I am also getting approached by galleries around the country because of Agora Gallery showing my art. It has been an enjoyable experience and very beneficial to my art career.

D. Solloway

My experience in general at Agora Gallery was fabulous and professional. From the moment I assigned them to represent and promote my artworks, they were very honest in giving their opinion and advice. I'm very pleased with the way they displayed my artwork and respected it. I would like to thank everybody who worked very hard to make this exhibition happen in this professional way, and I can't forget the director of our show, madam Angela Di Bello, for her contribution, time & organization. 

Z. Shaban

I have the highest regard for the Agora team and they have done everything they offered in my contract. Communication has been excellent and very prompt from all Agora staff. 

Having the exposure in New York is certainly a great boost for me and the whole experience has been wonderful. Congratulations to the team for their faultless performance in all respects.

L. Ward

I'm rather proud to tell everyone in Denmark that I have been in an exhibition in Chelsea, Manhattan, in a very beautiful gallery - and that I even sold two paintings and one pastel drawing. It has only been a very positive experience.

S. Bondrop

From the start, the positive things I heard about Agora Gallery from other artists have proved true. Being able to sell one of my works of art in New York is a real boost to my career as an artist. I sincerely thank Angela and her team at the Agora Gallery for helping me to achieve this big success and for helping me to keep working hard and enjoying what I am doing as an artist.

J. Lee-Marles

Great experience, and what you would expect of a high level group that makes you their business. Keeping in touch, communicating with the artist from the beginning up through the time of the exhibit was very professional.

J. Van Dyke

Everything about the exhibition was perfect. Agora Gallery's staff was so polite and helpful; every time I had a question or a problem they were there to help. They were more than helpful; I felt like they were my friends. I also felt like they and I together were a team, all trying to put the exhibition together for MY benefit. 

Exhibiting my work in New York City was thrilling. The exhibition was very well attended and so many people stopped by and asked me about my artwork. I was very happy with the effortless, magical way it all unfolded.

E. Halfpenny

The exhibition reception was a very important event in my career. The gallery space looked so perfect, and I felt so proud that my artworks were exhibited in that place.

The hard working gallery staff have such an important role in the excellent results that can be seen in the exhibition. Every little detail is coordinated by the gallery assistants and supervised by the director.

S. Grandela

The show was impeccably presented and my art was hung in a favorable location that it just felt that it belonged there. The painting was lit so well with the correct lighting choices that the colors just jumped off the canvas. And the space of the gallery as a whole gave each artist the very same professionalism. It takes a lot of preparation and hard work to have a show come off so successful. 
Social media is very well handled by everyone at Agora. The publicity generated was greatly appreciated. Even in the local Spokesman-Review, which was read by many of my collectors.
It was particularly nice to have the Swedish delegation from the Swedish Embassy explain what she saw in my painting - and very accurately. I had many interesting conversations with artists and collectors from around the world. 
The show was energized by each artist's talent, and the gallery presentation just amplified that, without getting in the way. I have put on shows, attended other artists' shows and been in galleries that usually fall short in one or most of the areas mentioned. So I appreciate and know how hard it is to pull this off so successfully. Job well done by everyone at the Agora Gallery.
What a wonderful NY experience.

J. LaVigne

I can simply say that I am fully satisfied with representation by Agora from the very beginning.  The fact that I would be a part of Agora’s exhibition generated some nice interviews with local media, on TV, culture news, as well as the art magazines.  

I am fully amazed with the professionalism, passion and dedication that the whole team demonstrated in our cooperation.

G. Tomic

Agora Gallery is the best thing that ever happened to my art career. With this exhibit, I got a lot of positive feedback (near 100%) from people who showed up for the show and other artists themselves. The staff is super nice, highly professional and well organized. The gallery is the best, in location, cleanliness and appearance. It has the best location on 25th Street, right beside two famous Pace Gallery branches. And this is New York City, the most prime location for all arts in the capital city of the world. 

What's really flattering is being among the very good artists that are represented by Agora. I'm so proud to be exhibiting side by side with them, and I wish I could have spent more time with them on the reception night.

V. Carrillo

My immediate opinion of the gallery was that Agora was a virtual candy store of very beautiful international art. My life has now been completely transformed by Agora’s professional connections to the entire world, providing seemingly endless potential for every image that I and all the other Agora-represented artists create. 

On the exhibition wall, my works looked quite lovely.  Even before the reception officially opened, guests were already arriving in droves. All during the evening there were so many guests asking me about my images that I was sure my face would crack into pieces from smiling so much.

I think I floated on Cloud 9 all the way back to the hotel, and slept like a very contented baby.

B. Moore

The staff at Agora Gallery is very knowledgeable and professional. Plus, the gallery is beautiful, especially the spacious new street level space.  It keeps me coming back to exhibit year after year.

S. Marx

To see other people enjoying my art gives me satisfaction in a way I didn't think I would.

There has been an explosion of invites and the interest for my art is really overwhelming. I'm so thankful. As for now I'm booked for an exhibition in Nice/France in December 2014, an art fair in Milan/Italy from July 2015 and an art project in Naples/Italy In November 2015.

M. Forsberg

I had a wonderful experience at Agora Gallery.  I was very impressed with the professional team directed by Angela Di Bello. The quality of communication made this team very easy to exchange from the beginning right to the very end of the presentation. All of the members of the staff are friendly, welcoming and very well organized. The opening reception was overwhelming.

N. Galianos

My experience with Agora Gallery team has been extraordinary. Their staff is very professional and attentive. I have participated in international events in Japan, Mexico, Sweden, France, Africa and others, but had never experienced the warmth of the staff of Agora Gallery. 

Representation of Agora Gallery in Chelsea opens another door to my professional career.

C. Sanabria

I say this with great sincerity - I can't recall having been involved with a more dedicated, efficient, knowledgable, charming, group of people.

B. Williams

Agora has a good eye for what artist to represent, and I am very pleased to be part of those selected. Since I started my representation, I have been contacted by many galleries in NY but also by galleries in Italy and magazines around the world, and this in less than six months of exposure at Agora Gallery. This tells me that not only the gallery is very well recognized, but that my work is also appreciated. 

As an artist, I can only say that after so many negative experiences it is good to find a gallery that represents us the way we should be represented, and I will recommend the gallery to any artist that I know as being the best gallery I have had the pleasure to work with. I hope that we can work together for a long time.

E. Calcagno

I found the publicity amazing, and my associates are so envious of the wide reach that my work has reached.  I was so pleased to see my work featured in some of the articles - did I really paint that!

As a result of the publicity, I have been approached from a number of galleries around the world to exhibit with them, as well as to advertise my work in publications.   I am on such a high!

The whole experience was one that I have been glad to have participated in, and one that I would recommend to any artist.

B. Anderson

I was amazed when I walked into the Gallery and saw the wonderful art space. I was thrilled when I saw my paintings. They were so well presented and the lighting was wonderful. I felt very proud of my work and thought the Gallery had done a wonderful job with the display of all the art work. It is one of the best art spaces I have seen.

The impact on my career has been amazing. I can't believe the reaction of people when I tell them I am Exhibiting in New York. They are so impressed and they get on Facebook and tell everyone. It looks fantastic on my website and will be good for my cv.  It has given me a real boost of confidence and greatly helped my self esteem.

The staff are the best group of people I have ever worked with in this situation. Emails were answered promptly - the emails were friendly and courteous as were the women sending them. The staff were very efficient and approachable. I'm finding it hard to find the words to describe how I feel about all the staff because I thought every one was so helpful, kind and very cooperative.

I feel as if I am still on cloud nine from the experience.  

I loved the experience so much and was so impressed with the Gallery and staff that Agora would be the only New York Gallery that I would consider Exhibiting again if the opportunity arose.

W. Hope

The kind encouragement and suggestions, you and your staff offered me were very helpful towards enabling me to focus on practical aspects, such as photographing my art work and myself; the instructions for readying my work for shipping, and many other details to take into consideration, were indicative of your strong and long-term background in organizing professional art gallery exhibits for the artists you selected particularly noticeable when I first visited the gallery last January.Although the Agora Gallery website demonstrated the strength and professionalism of the art works being shown; and the appearance and layout of its interior spaces; the visit confirmed my initial impression of the seriousness of purpose has in presenting new artists to the New York art scene.

J. Chisholm

A positive contribution to my professional resume.

L. Serra da Teramo

The impact on my art and my abilities as an artist has increased three fold.

D. Shaffer

The impact to be represented by Agora Gallery validated my feeling that making and showing art is an important part of life. Meeting and talking to all the other artists was a golden opportunity. Agora Galley is as professional as an artist could think of. I received friendly help and positive input whenever I asked. I'm absolutely delighted with my decision to go with Agora Gallery and its lovely and professional staff.

D. Wankowski

I'm much more confident than before. When I started painting, I was afraid of showing my paintings to other people. Now I'm proud to show what I do. I get a lot of positive feedback and displaying my works at the gallery an on the art-mine page helped me to show myself and my paintings to the world. There are a lot of galleries who want to work with me.

M. De Oliveira

I have been very touched to see one of my paintings, a woman surfer, on the poster of the show I was part of. It felt as a recognition of my work by Angela Di Bello and her team...
I have been very impressed by the number of visitors at the opening reception, with a very joyful energy during the entire evening, that has reassured me as time went by, an interior relaxation, and a desire to continue, to assume my painting style, the meaning I intend to put into my paintings, what I want to say by them... because several people have been moved by my art work... and have told me about their emotions, they have felt what I want to express and that has done me a lot of good.

J. Kem Lika

Agora Gallery has led me to great opportunities in other areas of my career and given me more confidence in exhibiting my paintings to a more significant audience.

The staff of Agora Gallery was exceptionally professional and personable. They took time with each artist and made each feel as if they were the only artist around. Everything that was promised to me was fulfilled.

D. Slikker

The staff at Agora Gallery are very friendly created a welcoming atmosphere. It feels good to be in a place where everyone knows your name instead of being just another artist.

I literally feel like I can do anything now. Even though there is still a great distance to go to reach the fame I'm looking for, it really gives me enormous confidence to be able to say that I took my art to New York.

J. Sorvali

It has definitely added a noted credential to my curriculum vitae. People generally start to take more notice once they see "New York" in your list.

New York was a very great experience for me and Agora Gallery give me this opportunity.

P. Engeler

This experience with Agora Gallery has given me the confidence and motivation to paint knowing that there is an audience in the world who can veiw the work. I am far more aware of the options available to me as an artist, and the venues available to artists to show and make work.

S. Munro

I feel confident that the work has stood up to and has equal footing with other atists. It benifits my career in a way that I can be taken more seriously.

P. Neden

Just telling people in Europe & back in UK that I had a show in New York and have gallery representation there seems to Wow folks ! Considerable - just telling people in Europe & back in UK that I had a show in New York and have gallery representation there seems to Wow folk ! I have complete confidence in the team & am really excited about my future relationship with Agora, I cant wait for my next trip.

B. Hodgkinson

I can say that during the year I was represented by Agora Gallery, I always felt seriousness and efficiency, as well as kindness, politeness, respect, help and patience, Particularly during the preparation of the shipping, so difficult from France to USA.
I felt a real charm in the fact that the staff was a feminine one. Strength and sweetness mixed together.

S. Martino

This representation has boosted myconfidence as an artist. It has taught me how to be organized andprofessional in my career as an artist. It has given me knowledge interms of marketing .

M. Vedpathak

I was really happy with my [exhibition] space and the other works that were chosen to compliment that same area- my work and the other artists' work really complimented each other. It looked beautiful! The layout was also different than I had imagined (the order in which my work was hung on the wall) and was even better than I could have pictured it!

T. McCans

I have received a lot of deals and requests from Art Fairs , biennales and galleries in Europe, USA and Canada.(Firenze, Verona, Open Art code in Paris, among others.) I am represented in an exhibition in Norway and my representation at Agora Gallery was crucial for this event. I feel more, than before, that my works get noticed and I have got even more inspiration to continue creating photographic works

T. Berge

Being selected by Agora Gallery for representation encouraged me to continue my desire to paint and exhibit. I learned a great deal from Angela and from my recent exhibit.

B. Ness-Cooper

K. Johkoh

One word - Excellence

R. Fuchs

Everything since the show has been so positive not only in my career but in the realization of who I am as an artist and who I can become. Since then, I have been a featured artist at the Markeim Art Center in Haddonfield, NJ and won first place in my county's Senior Art Show and then will be judged again at the State level.

L. Kasprack

It has given me more confidence with my work and I continue to extend myself with my paintings. I have had great feedback from people that have known that I have been represented by Agora. I run a busy art school teaching adults and I know that this representation has had a very positive impact on my students.

L. Hudson

Well located in Art District of New York. Each person at Agora is an expert in her job and knows exactly what they have to do and does it on time. Though Agora have strict rules and regulations, they are sensitive to the needs of an artist. A successful Art Gallery in these uncertain times, Agora Gallery is a launch pad for [artists] to the US market.

P. Sheth

Agora Gallery has given me the confidence to believe in myself now & not let others sway me in my creative path but to forge ahead in my art so it is truly unique to me.
Since being represented by Agora I find a lot of people are more interested in my creative works, rather then just the representational work I was doing also. I also have had a lot of media coverage which is great for my career.

T. Fitzpatrick

The staff has been very professional and helpful to my needs. I'm very impressed with how organized and thorough they are.

G. Koeppel

Being represented by a gallery in NYC definitely adds credibility to an artist's resume and portfolio. Agora Gallery presents particularly well - both online and in person, which in turn reflects very positively on those artists it represents. Anyone who is fortunate enough to attend an exhibition at Agora cannot fail to be extremely impressed by the experience. As an artist in one of those exhibitions, it is very gratifying to be represented by Agora, with all the dedication and professionalism they bring to the table. For the artists this boosts personal confidence, but it also builds professional credibility within the art market.

I have had several  shows in India and abroad over the past 3 decades but Agora Gallery was another level altogether.I was so proud to tell my friends and clients about it right from the day I decided to go ahead with it.It has impacted my career in a big way.Everybody wants to know more about me and my new work more than ever before

B. Sagar

Angela, thank you so much for the opportunity and thank  you  to all your wonderful team work for the greatest experience of my life.  Your representation has given me the skill to keep searching my  goals in the fine art world.

I feel with more enthusiasm and confidence to keep creating art and live the great passion of art because of  the amazing experience with Agora Gallery.

J. Lugo Rivas

Representation by Agora has been great.It has helped to infuse a ton of energy into me and I feel my work has improved because of their confidence in exhibiting my work.
My experience with Agora, Angela and the staff has been super.

C. Taylor

I can't say enough about the magnificent staff and director. Everyone was extremely professional and most helpful, no matter how minute the question or problem may have been, the answer was not far away.

B. Pakman

Signing with Agora has been very validating, not only for me but for clients and fans. The first thing about myself I now say to people is that I have New York representation. It carries with it a vast prestige that gives me and my clients confidence in my work, which is especially important when you're doing new creative art. The staff at Agora is fantastic. Angela DiBello is not only a force to be reckoned with but an amazingly accessible and helpful director. Everyone else on the staff, which is extensive, has been on-point and equally as informative. It has been wonderful to get answers and help when needed.

W. Vinci

Representation by Agora has stretched me in the right direction... I am grateful for the interaction with such a dynamic team. 
Iron sharpens Iron...And my career has certainly sharpened up this year in many ways...I have worked hard with new subjects and techniques and been happy with the result.

M. Hawtin

I have had many shows (mostly in obscure places) in my long painting career, but Agora's gallery space is beautiful, nicely layed out, and well lit, so it was very pleasing to see my work on display in company with the works of many talented artists.

D. Gilbert

As an artist, it has been a great experience for me to be represented by Agora Gallery,  Since I joined Agora my visibility as an artist has changed completely. I have received several invitations to show my artwork in different galleries all over the world, what motivates me to move on in producing much more and with much more confidence.

F. Braune

The openings are always memorable, however, my last exhibition was most memorable due to the people I met and the fact that one of my photographs was purchased. I find it very helpful to be able to say that i am represented by Agora Gallery it is important for my career.


It is  very important point in my career to be represented by an international gallery. I was also very inspired by the city, the Agora Gallery itself and it’s surrounding. I was so proud.

H. Jach

I had show's before in my own city but having to trust a gallery outside my own surroundings was quite challenging, I was extremely nervous. In time, I found them to be very honest and direct in their approach, I learned to trust the gallery and admired all their hard work, I appreciate the work ethics Agora provides. I feel Agora truly believes in their artists.

T. Dadouch

The exhibition at Agora Gallery was entirely satisfactory in all respects. From the excellent level of professionalism displayed by all the staff in dealing with all matters, to the respect shown for the artist and their work, to the constant and friendly advice available – all my proposed goals were achieved and I felt that the show was a success.

The reception was spectacular! People were queuing up waiting to enter the gallery. I felt that my work was seen by many people who really appreciated it and that it fit well into the art world of Chelsea, New York – one of the art capitals of the world.

I am very happy to have chosen Agora, both because of the success I experienced and because of the invaluable help of the entire staff which undoubtedly contributed to this achievement.

M. Cámara

I chose agora gallery because of the number of exhibitions per year, the references of artists who have exhibited there, the professionalism of staff, and above all, that it is located in NY, considered the world capital of art.
There was a moment in the middle of the opening reception when I remembered "this was once a dream..."

A. Barba

Agora's Gallery staff has made easy what is harder to me:  aspects of logistics and advice. They are helpful and friendly. I was waiting for years to live this experience and Agora Gallery gave me the oportunity. The opening reception was an unforgettable evening! Magical... and as everything, perfect in every detail. I could not imagine a better experience.

N. Ros

My experience with Agora Gallery's staff was very positive.  They are professional, knowledgeable, enthusiastic, upbeat and vibrant.  The impact on being represented by Agora Gallery has been very worthwhile.  The exposure has been tremendous.  I am more accepting of myself as an artist. 

C. Mittermaier

The atmosphere of gallery was cozy and warm. It was so impressive the gallery was spacious enough. I liked the layout of the artworks displayed and felt my works were being treated well by the gallery. I ecspecially liked the way the staff worked and communicated with me regarding all the things related. They were really professional, friendly and so kind!

S. Hong

I found a very experienced coordinated staff working in a beautiful synchronicity. It was a real pleasure for me.

R. Oshpiz

The reason why I chose Agora as my artwork gallery was because of the Agora spirit and quality. After reading all the facts about the gallery it was a good choice for me. An art gallery ready to do everything for their artists.  The Agora staff is very professional!  Willing to help, always giving information and feedback. One couldn’t be in better hands.

C. Perez de Carvasal

I chose the Agora Gallery in New York because of your wonderful website, and courteous staff. I called and would talk to them and they were nothing short of professional and extremely helpful and friendly. I have shown my work throughout California, New Zealand , and western Canada and I knew that , even though I had some wonderful experiences there , New York and Agora Gallery was where I wanted my work to be represented and where I wanted to be . I would recommend this gallery to every one of my art colleagues whose work is professional as well.
In closing I would have to say that not only did Angela, Sabrina, Nellie and all the rest  of the staff at Agora make me feel like I was part of the wonderful Art community of New York, but  also that I was family.

D. Adams

I chose Agora Gallery because it is a beautiful gallery – epitomizing a New York Gallery with open space, white walls, and wood floors. The gallery displays each piece of art so it shows off to best advantage and the viewer is able to appreciate that special work of art.  But most important in my decision to choose Agora was Angela.  She helped me to understand how Agora could be a positive influence in my art.  She continues to help me in offering directions, suggestions, and support.

J. Quest

Agora's staff are an absolute delight to work with.  It is so good to see that this world does have galleries like Agora that are truly professional, organized, considerate and deeply caring about the artists they represent.  Agora could not be doing things any better.

C. Turner

I love Agora's staff. They are all smart, extremely personable, very helpful and very     "on-the-ball". Although, I have shown my work in NY at various venues, I had never before considered even trying to work through a NY gallery. The driving, parking, drop-off situation is very time-consuming    and those shows are so competitive and so badly hung that I had stopped doing it. But, when Agora contacted me I decided to investigate. My purpose was to try to expand my market. I went to a number of shows and openings, brought a few other artist friends along to help me decide, and then I did decide in favor of trying it. I am glad I did. It has been a broadening experience. The Chelsea gallery scene is like no other. I am glad to have been involved. My time at Agora will always be a glowing memory.

C. Medina

I believe that Agora Gallery has opened my eyes as to how to get my name and artwork out to the general public. I liked the fact that Agora Gallery offered the opportunity for networking as well as ideas on how to improve my art work.  The professional staff was truly professional. This was probably the best aspect of the gallery. The staff was extremely polite, e-mail responses were courteous and prompt, and offered much advice when I needed it. The magazine was also superb!

Y. Hong

The staff is always friendly and helpful and very professional.

I also want to compliment the quality of the gallery. I am very proud to be represented by such gallery.

L. Steenbergen

I have only experienced the best of assistance, quick responses to questions and full cooperation with any and all aspects of logistics and advice; whether on the phone, email and in person.

B. Melsom

Agora is extremely professional in handling the artists' work. I appreciate this attention to detail in displaying my artwork. The gallery is beautiful and the artwork can easily be seen. Every location in the gallery is a great location to hang artwork. I loved the display! It was exciting and pleasing to see my artwork displayed with great attention.

C. Galloway

Representation at Agora has helped my confidence with their high quality of professionalism. In terms of my career as an artist, I have made some sales which has been great, but I also feel my work has continued to grow.

S. Mueller-Dick

I would call Agora Gallery staff more a team than a staff. Starting with the Director Angela Di Bello, they are very professional, pleasant and patient. Each of them has their own part to play and I had and have good  communication with all of them, they are very patient and helpful when you ask something.  I'm thinking especially of Nellie , who assists  with the shipment and customs. I was particularly reluctant with regard to all the customs details that seemed so daunting to me.

I keep in mind that they have to deal with dozens of artist at the same time, and that I am not the only one  but somehow,  they make it seem like you are the only one.

C. Gaillard Perez

When I first walked in and I was greeted by the staff as well as greeted by the warmth of the guests that were on the gallery floor. I was breathless, it was a full house! "Bravo" I also was taken aback by a collector of my work. They were there on my behalf too! I loved it.  It is a great feeling when I work with the staff at Agora Gallery. Nellie and the others respond fast when I have a question or a need of some kind. "Bravo once again"

M. Wayne

The Agora Gallery staff have been extremely professional. I am impressed with the amount of people who work at the gallery and their efficiency with response to my questions. They have been prompt with all emails and courteous with their responses. They have been a pleasure to work with.

R. Rath

I really liked the work of the staff, even in the period before the exposure. The staff was always present and available, with kindness and professionalism. I think every artist should find a gallery like Agora, where the artist can take care of his art and the gallery staff takes care of everything else.

C. Di Giacomo

The impact of being represented by Agora Gallery has made me feel as though I've become part of art history. I feel very proud to have been a part of it.  
Agora's staff is very professional, competent, and are on top of the matters at hand.

Agora Gallery's wonderful website is the best website I have ever seen, regardless of the type of business. It is very extensive and thorough. 

Rudelle ("Rudelle Fay Hall")

Exhibiting at Agora Gallery has been a very positive experience mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. I believe it has enriched my reputation as an international fine artist.

Everyone I have dealt with at Agora Gallery whether in person during my visit or via email have been professional and dedicated to the task at hand.

A. Rice

Many thanks for sending this message. The opening looked like a great night. I just want to take the time to extend my sincere gratitude on all the work the Agora Gallery team has done. If I had any doubt about sending my work across the world, it was certainly erased with the supportive communication and professionalism that you promote. I can not speak highly enough and I thank you for including me in this show. I regrettable could not make it but no doubt I felt like I was there in spirit.

B. Wilson

Angela you gave me so much encouragement and support in your e-mails over time since I first showed with Agora in 2002. I have so much gratitude to you for that. I now understand that my paintings are beautiful in the way that they are supposed to be, that they are a part of God in myself, and the beauty in them is just simply the expression of love. There is just a different feeling, an awareness, about the universe now and how love and guidance works.

T. Natasha

My trip to New York has inspired a whole series, I'm really looking forward to the opening this Sunday and will certainly be thinking of my journey over there last year. Thanks to Agora I had that amazing opportunity!

K. Warren

I am very impressed with how well organized, well run Agora Gallery is. I think I had the privilege of dealing with a good part of the staff through emails, what an excellent team you are! I am looking forward to the opening and meeting all of you!

P. Schulz

I would like to thank you and your entire staff for your help, advice, wonderful press release, the opening night, the forwarding of my paintings, and your professional presentation of my work for the past year. Many thanks to all of you and look forward to working with you in the future.

M. Girle

A brief note to confer my thanks and highest regards to yourself and the Agora crew. I have had the pleasure of dealing with many of your agents during the past year and wish to highlight praises one can only express towards them. I bequeath my salutations onto you, Madame, for your grand promotion of art in New York city and the quality that you warrant as a cultural ambassador. Madame, recevez mes salutations distinguées,

N. Palmer

I felt like I was in another dimension in NYC and my dream is to be able to live there someday.
With regards to my status as an Artist, there is no doubt that it has expanded tremendously. I was instantly recognized as a professional artist and people started to buy my paintings more and more. I was finally able to present myself as I am and it all made sense. Being able to be represented by Agora Gallery is the best thing that has ever happened in my life. I will be forever thankful to Angela and her staff, for all the help, support and friendship that I received on my first day in NYC.


I had a very good experience in this exhibition. That will exert a good influence with my activity in the future. I wish to express my gratitude to you. Because you gave me a lot of chances. I hope that I will be able to work with the Agora in the future. When I obtain success I want to share it with Agora.
Thank you very very much.

K. Inoue

The more I deal with all you folks at the Agora Gallery, the more impressed I am by how smoothly run everything is, you people are terrific! It has been a very easy and enjoyable experience for me...thank you

S. Hakonson

Indeed, one year of extremely well-organized and supportive representation is over. I learned and profited a lot during our mutual collaboration, and I really appreciate all your help and high competence in promoting me and my works in the US and globally through your website, ArtisSpectrum, articles published elsewhere. Several people (artists and curators) have contacted me mentioning that they discovered me through Agora website and ArtisSpectrum, sharing with me their feedback on my work - very rewarding experience, indeed! This is a clear evidence that promotion of artists through Agora Gallery works!

D. Breitscheidel

Thanks Agora-Gallery for everything. I know that in the reception day it was everything amazing;;;; I saw the photographs from the reception and they were very beatiful;;; You helped me very much, I opened new horizons! Thank you again for all the things that you've done for me.


I like to thank you for the opportunity to be represented by your gallery, I did enjoy working with you and the gallery group and I did enjoy my exhibition. I like to congratulate you and your staff for the excellent quality of your work. I would love the idea of continuing to be represented from your gallery.

H. Michailidou

Thank you for all of your assistance and professionalism regarding my becoming part of Agora Gallery. I have exhibited in New York for several years at a midtown gallery. At no point did I feel more comfortable, or been more impressed with the professionalism I have experienced at every turn with Agora Gallery. The staff is unbeatable. It is my intention, in the future, to associate myself only with Agora Gallery in the New York market. I feel there is a genuine spirit of camaraderie between Agora Gallery and it's artists.

S. Panasci

I have only good impressions from the exhibit. I have been with other galleries in the city and find Agora Gallery to be head and shoulders above the rest- online presence, skillful, friendly, and dedicated staff, a wealth of experience and knowledge among them, added benefit of ArtisSpectrum...I could go on and on

D. LaBella

Angela, as you and your staff at Agora Gallery, have been extremely supportive of my endeavors, bringing enhanced visibility to my efforts, I must thank you, from the depths of my spirit. I commend you so highly, for your untiring efforts to reveal the creative aspirations, of artists all over the planet, through your astute insight, intellect, vision and expertise; you are making a definitive contribution to the human civilization process.
In providing your direction and guiding force, diverse people can become one, through the connecting spirit of the aesthetic, driven, by your unique inspiration. From the moment that I became represented by Agora, my professional art career began to solidify, and never stopped its upward trajectory.
Thank you for believing in me.

L. Vaughn

I received today the document [exhibition packet] so I would like to thank you for everything. New York was a great experience for me and you give me this opportunity. I really want to congratulate your team, they were kind and very professionnal.

S. Hieronimy

I have found that exhibiting at the Agora has proved to be very worthwhile. Partly due to having shown my work with you I have had offers of exhibition space coming in and, in general, a very positive response to my work. Therefore I am very happy with having shown my work with you and may well do so again in the future.

M. Oliver

No sooner then I send a note to you that Maria LaCava sends me everything that I need to know. It is that attention to detail and prompt service that has made working with everyone in the Agora Gallery an amazing experience. Thanks for everything.  

D. Morgan

I am very thankful and grateful to you and all Gallery Management that they encourage and promote my exhibition very well. Your given information and appreciation about my exhibition, I am very happy and satisfied. Madam, I saw your given art related links on sites about my exhibition. These links are very attractive and I like it very much. I am also very thankful to all art lovers and art professionals that they appreciate my work.

N. Ali

I would like once more thank you and your wonderful staff for bringing me to where I am, the exhibition in your gallery was a maturing process which has really helped me get my artistic career off the ground. I even have some solgans " embracing forgotten values" and "escape the stresses of everyday life".


Thanks once again for your kind words. I am very pleased to say the least that my works were received well there in New York. It has been such a pleasure working with you and your staff. You have done such a wonderful job of showing and advertising my work. I cannot express enough how I feel about the true professionalism and care that you have shown, and continue to show, toward me and my work.

C. Griffiths

Thank you for the positive feed-back received! I want to thank again for the way you and your staff encouraged and promoted me as an artist in the fancy, fascinating,  and overwhelming city of New York. It was my first time I  have seen New York, and now, I really miss out that place. I loved the people, the crowded streets, and all the good art displayed there in fantastic galleries. I hope that you are continuing to enjoy a wonderful life and journey in the kingdom of Arts.

N. Liuta

I cannot thank you enough  for your email and your kind consideration.
I appreciate it very much. Once again, I am very happy to work with you and your talented staff.

M. Mansey

It has certainly proved to be a positive experience and feel as though it certainly has helped develop my artistic career.

I look forward to another fruitful year with Agora.

D. Champlin

I have been very happy working with you and your staff this year. I look forward to another great year and exhibition with Agora Gallery!! My best to you,

P. Fabian

To be represented by Agora Gallery is very inspiring. Each time when I participate in an exhibition here I feel very lucky to be given such a great opportunity. I wish that every artist would be so lucky as I am to be represented by Agora Gallery, one of the biggest and most professional galleries in New York City.

Until I started exhibiting my work at Agora Gallery, I had feeling that the "doors" to be accepted in the art world were closed. Now those “doors” have opened. I have received many offers to participate in other galleries in the US and abroad. I have already lost count of how many of my paintings were sold and how many compliments my art has received.

K. Garon

Even the art market, dealing with fantasy, aesthetics and hopes,sometimes seems to be a shark pool. I think every artist has to learn this through his own experiences. Since my first contact(2003 )with Angela DiBello and the Agora Gallery, I appreciate the reliability,warm response,professional advice and encouragement. Me and my artwork – We feel in good hands!

K. Alvarez

I want to thank you and gallery staff for making the group exhibition in New York a very pleasant one. And also, Thank you for the newest information on the web. I am deeply indebted to you. I am looking forward to seeing you again.

Sincerely yours,


I have no words to thank you and your staff. Everyone I dealt with at Agora Gallery has been so efficient and friendly. Pity I couldn't meet you all in Person. I was very pleased to hear a painting of mine was sold during the exhibition and any other reviews and comments are very welcome. I have just been offered a contract of exclusivity with a Gallery in Dubai where I will be suppliying them with Artwork for a year.A lot has to do, I am sure, with the fact that I was exhibiting in New York.Yes,New York certainly has opened doors for me.

M. Harris

Getting the work up is what it's all about and you've done a wonderful job hanging the show. I love my spot as a lead in and a lead out wall and enjoyed talking with some of the visitors at the reception. Most of my creative time is so insular; it is a nice change to emerge briefly to share the works in public. Thanks to everyone involved.

C. Reid

I enjoyed my experience with Agora Gallery, and I thought everyone acted very professional. The art was well presented in the gallery, and the personnel were helpful and friendly. I was sorry that the show coincided with a very depressed economy, and I hope that you are able to survive this extended slow period. I have had three other New York Galleries contact me since the exhibit opened. At least there was some exposure . Several of the visitors to the Agora opening have contacted me about visiting my studio.

B. Watson

I cannot thank you enough for your generosity and all you have done for me, it has been an extremely positive experience with your gallery.
I am hoping to once again be represented by your gallery in the near future.

K. Jarvis

I thank you for your email and the sound advice you've offered. I can tell you I have made good use of the PR and reviews that I have received through my relationship with Agora Gallery through 2006 and 2007. As a result, I now have many private collectors, a corporate client, an internationally positioned architectural firm and an interior design firm all collecting and representing my work. This is just a brief summary of where I find myself and I certainly owe a great deal to the exposure and credibility that Agora Gallery provided. I have also of course worked hard to raise my profile here through media interviews, television programming and advertising. I thank everyone at Agora Gallery for their professional work.

J. Wheeler

Working with you and all the Agora Gallery people has been a very positive experience for me. I loved the way you displayed each person's work and opening night was so much fun.

R. Sloate

My most  memorable moment was when I learnt that my artwork had sold.
I was aware that  it was very hard to sell  in NY, especially as an unknown artist from another country. I have had experience with galleries in Venezuela and Japan but none of them were so efficient and professional.
