Robert Oelman, whose beautiful nature photography was on display at Agora Gallery last year, has opened a Kickstarter project to fund the amazing project he'd like to do next - a documentary capturing his journey deep into the rainforests of South America to discover the world's most exotic insects.
You can help fund this fascinating and worthwhile endeavor, which aims to increase awareness of the wonder and fragility of the natural world and our responsibility to it, here - but hurry, because the chance to fund it ends on May 11!

This May, Agora Gallery welcomes not one, not two, but three artists back for a returning exhibition at Agora Gallery. Susan Marx will be showing her Abstract Impressionist works, bursting with color, in The Odyssey of Color, while Caroline Josephs PhD will be presenting her thought-provoking, intricate art in Out From Down Under & Beyond: Fine Art From Australia and New Zealand, as will Tanya Marie Reeves, who will display her energetic yet meticulous acrylic creations.
The exhibitions begin on May 11, 2013 and will run until May 31, 2013, with an opening reception on the evening of Thursday, May 16, 2013. Entrance is free and art enthusiasts are warmly welcomed to attend.
Kudos and Accolades
Wendy Carmichael-Bauld has had an exciting time recently. She participated in Degrees of Abstraction at Agora Gallery in February, and since then, it's been all go!
She has just wrapped up a solo show called 'Idiosyncracies' at the Milton Centre for the Arts in Ontario. The show was covered in local paper the Milton Canadian Champion, and over 200 people attended the opening night. Now she's moving straight on to preparing a solo exhibition in the area near Toronto where she grew up. She's recently participated in the Art Gallery of Hamilton's May Sale, May 2-4.
As if this weren't enough, Wendy has been on two TV shows to talk about her work, and was recently accepted, after a grueling juried process, into the Federation of Canadian Artists. Wendy strongly feels that her exhibiton in New York and the representation by Agora has contributed substantially to her success. Congratulations Wendy!
Spring Blossoms in NYC
Nothing says NYC spring like the delicate blossom of the cherry tree. Whether with oil, acrylics or photos from an iPhone, artists have always been inspired to capture the beautiful blossoms of spring.
