Chelsea International Fine Art Competition Exhibition
August 19 - August 30, 2017 | Reception: August 19, 2017, 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
This August Agora Gallery presents the selected artists of the 2017 Chelsea International Fine Art Competition. As in years past, the work on display is of incredible variety and extraordinary skill. There are precise, spare drawings in the same gallery as maximal, playful sculptures. There are monochrome, graphic paintings that explore repetition hung near hyperrealistic still lifes that take inspiration from the classics of centuries past. There are imagined lands and images of human moments that ring with truth. Even two selected landscape photographers defy comparison - some produce stoic, black-and-white views of single trees, while others create expansive vistas in full color. The 2017 jurors' picks share nothing except fearlessness, adroit execution, and unforgettable originality.
