Agora Gallery is pleased to present a collective art exhibition, scheduled to run from June 2, 2009 through June 23, 2009. United in Art, an exhibition of fine art from England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland, celebrating innovation and diversity; United in Art demonstrates the depth and range of work originating from the United Kingdom. Ranging from the figurative to the abstract and enjoying qualities of spontaneity, color and rhythm. The works on display teem with energy as they capture both the form and spirit of their subjects.
The Substance of Abstraction, audiences are presented with a rich kaleidoscope of color, form, and texture that in conjunction breathes life into abstract artworks. Whether employing shimmering brushstrokes or bold fields of color, nonrepresentational art, with its lack of familiar forms, allows the work speak to us on an especially elemental level. Through their deeply personal forms of expression, these artists offer a stunning glimpse into contemporary abstract painting. Unbound Perspectives: by exploring such undiscovered vantage points and often-overlooked inspirations, this collection of artists was selected because they present the world to viewers with an unusual candor. Whether with grit or finesse, the paintings grouped together in Unbound Perspectives display a timeless artistic past time: to unseat the audience from their comfortable and mundane perceptions of reality.
