Miki Stiles, MFA
Agora Founder

Agora Gallery is a spacious, elegant fine art gallery of 8,000 square feet located in the heart of New York City’s Chelsea art galleries district, close to the DIA Center for the Arts (map and directions). The gallery is famous for showcasing a spectacular array of talented artists from around the world and around the corner, and for providing quality and original art to a discerning collector base.

The late Miki Stiles, MFA established Agora Gallery in 1984 to provide an opportunity to artists entering the New York art market. As an artist she faced many hardships while attempting to exhibit her art and wanted to help her fellow artists in their struggle.

Ms. Stiles was a visionary who founded the gallery on the principle that all artists, particularly emerging artists, are in need of enhancing their artist biographies/CV through gallery representation and exhibitions, in order to advance their artistic careers.

Agora Gallery is dedicated to serving both artists and collectors, and offers a wide spectrum of art programs, including:

  • Exhibitions - A dynamic schedule of collective and annual fine art exhibitions, open to the public and featuring the work of our talented artists.

  • The Chelsea International Fine Art Competition – an annual fine art competition with entries from around the world that are juried by experienced prominent art experts and museum curators. The gallery introduces the juror-selected artists to the New York Art scene, through an exhibition promotional activities both online and in print.

  • ARTisSpectrum Magazine – a bi-annual fine art magazine that is distributed to museums, galleries, art institutions and art schools around the world. It provides artists, collectors, museums, galleries, art organizations and enthusiasts with access to the work of internationally talented emerging and mid-level artists as well as feature articles, reviews and interviews.

  • Social Media Initiatives – as part of its commitment to bringing information to artists, Agora Gallery runs an artists' blog, which offers advice for artists, up to date news of Agora Gallery exhibitions and events, and stories from all over the art world.
