A Season of Love and Art: Exhibitions at Agora
Gallery this February
Tuesday February 10 11a.m. – Tuesday
March 3 6 p.m.
The exhibitions coming
to Agora Gallery this February represent a
collection of talent from artists from around
the world. The works in Figuratively Speaking
will elegantly represent unadulterated reality,
and blend representational fact with fiction,
abstracting or rearranging scenes through
manipulation of color, perspective, texture,
and structure. The artists featured in Elemental
Realms each push the envelope when it comes
to texture and technique, using their aesthetic
achievements to entice viewers into their
unattainable realities and redefine reality
on their own terms. A solo exhibition entitled,
Project 13: Ghass Rouzkhosh presents the artwork
of an acclaimed artist whose abstract four-color
paintings draw from a personal history of
war, violence, tragedy, and hope.

of the world as they shine the spotlight on
a unique, universal artistic language, creating
dazzling panoramas of visual delight that
are infused with a divine creative spirit.

Herb Alpert and Richard Mayhew
February 19th through April 4th, 2015
Opening Reception: Thursday, February 19 from
7 to 9 pm
is pleased to announce its upcoming exhibition,
Herb Alpert and Richard Mayhew: Harmonic Rhythms,
on view February 19 through April 4, 2015.
Primarily known for his music, Herb Alpert
has gained a reputation as an accomplished
visual artist. At 91, Richard Mayhew is acknowledged
as one of America’s premier landscape
painters and colorists. Both artists, informed
intensely by music, use improvisation in their
Herb Alpert’s sculptures reveal Alpert’s
growth and influences: the spirituality of
the native American totems of the Pacific
Northwest, the monumentality and modernism
of Rodin, Henry Moore and Alberto Giacometti.
But as these influences passed through Alpert,
they picked up elements of his soul, a soul
informed by the harmonies and rhythms of music,
especially jazz. Thus, his totemic forms are
as effervescent as they are magisterial, as
sensual as they are spiritual.
Alpert’s sculptures, though generally
abstract, nonetheless revel in the fleshy
exuberance of human forms. Sensuality and
sexuality proclaim themselves with eloquent
poise. Alpert treats sensuality not just as
an organic experience, but as emotions that
seem to erupt from the sculptures themselves.
Thus, this interplay between the emotional,
physical and spiritual gives Alpert’s
sculptures and internal power, an energy that
flows from their forms and surrounds the viewer.
