November 2022 - Agora newsletter - iFrame


With winter at the door, Agora Gallery is pleased to announce Exotic Reveries, a group exhibition of paintings, sculptures, and photographs that explore the contemporary notion of exoticism, on view until November 22.

Our curatorial team presents the works of twelve artists, including William Atkinson and Ronnie Genotti, whose monumental paintings overpower the front space with a dynamic urban punch. You can learn more about their work in our recent feature articles.

In our blog, as usual, we bring you our highlights on what makes headlines in the art world and we also draw attention to the recent acts of protests by climate activists, who threw food at a Monet painting at a German museum.

We are excited to announce that Justin Warner has joined the Agora team as the gallery's Sales Director.

Prior to joining Agora, he worked for a number of high-profile galleries, museums, and art advisory firms in New York and abroad. Justin holds a Master's in Art Criticism & Theory and a B.A. in both Art History and Business. Alongside arts sales, he has a longstanding background in curatorial work and always strives to integrate academic credibility into the marketing and sales of Fine Art.
