World’s Finest Art Gallery Destinations

Australian travel insurance specialists InsureandGo featured a blog post on July 10th about the World’s Finest Art Gallery Destinations. Agora Gallery is listed by name as one of the “key destinations” in New York for art lovers. We can’t help but wonder if they stopped by during one of Agora’s Out From Down Under & Beyond: Fine Art From Australia and New Zealand exhibits!


Contemporary Fine Art That Looks Like Minions

This cute listicle, Contemporary Fine Art That Looks Like Minions, on popular women’s website The Hairpin featured several of Agora’s artists for their so-called resemblance to Minions, the hyper and popular children’s characters, in celebration of the recently released film. The article featured works by Paul Morado, Paul Sonabend, Eduardo Pola (pictured above), and Helga Zumstein, all of whom are featured in the current exhibition, Répartie in Art.
