Mélange of Milieu, a new exploration of modern technique and genre, opens this February at Agora Gallery. This group exhibition features eight artists from all over the world who are finding innovative ways to deploy timeless materials: oil, acrylic, bronze, stone, wood, and thread are all represented. There are paintings of elaborate, multi-figure scenes steeped in western mythology; supersaturated, almost confrontational realistic paintings of the human body in close-up; and beautifully detailed bronze statuettes of imaginary animals. All eight of the artists have created works that seem to move with their own life. Each artist approaches his or her work with both care and a concept. The exhibition as a whole is raucous and thoughtful at the same time.
Agora Gallery was established by the late Miki Stiles, MFA, to provide opportunities to artists entering the global art market. Located in the heart of the famous Chelsea art district, the gallery occupies the ground floor of 530 West 25th Street.
