Spring Forward

March 1 - March 22, 2024 | Reception: March 7, 2024, 6-8 PM

Agora Gallery is pleased to announce Spring Forward, an exhibition of paintings by local and international artists marking the unfolding of artistic practices and movements across history. 

With a deliberate focus on the continuum of artistic influence, the show brings together artists who seamlessly bridge the gaps between classical traditions and contemporary styles. Echoes of the past reverberate as far back as antiquity traveling across centuries to the modern era. Vibrant tableaux depicting female figures evoke mythical scenes from Ancient Greek amphoras while stirring recollections of Picasso’s Les Demoiselles d’Avignon. Charming vedute of European cities offer modern spins on 17th and 18th century landscape painting, blending elements of Surrealism, Magical Realism, and Metaphysical art. On the contemporary spectrum, expressionism prevails, with gestural emotion-driven brushstrokes, color fields, and unconventional palettes. Other works are equally eclectic, creating enticing, thought-provoking convos between old and new masters. The show invites viewers to explore art’s enduring dialogue across centuries and the dynamic interplay between tradition and innovation.
