It’s May, and the seasons are changing all over the world – but at Agora Gallery, May means ARTisSpectrum! The latest issue is now out, and as always provides a useful and fascinating insight into the world of fine art and artists. If you’re in New York, you can pick up a copy at Barnes and Noble, various other locations around the city, or of course the gallery itself. If you’re not, you can subscribe to receive the magazine to your door or read the magazine online.


In Volume 31, Agora Gallery’s own Angela Di Bello discusses the intricacies of building your own art collection. She discusses the factors that are most crucial to bear in mind and gives essential advice to anyone thinking of collecting contemporary artwork. There is also a Spotlight piece featuring the work of Shokoufeh Malekkiani, a lawyer who discovered that she could contribute more to the world through her brave, moving and thought-provoking photography.

One of the highlights of every edition of ARTisSpectrum is the collection of artist profiles that it provides, which introduce the reader to some of the talented artists emerging onto the global art scene. Their mediums, styles and motivations vary enormously, but the skill and passion behind their work does not, and each profile sheds light on their different, fascinating creative processes and artworks.
