Description: This March two group exhibitions of outstanding range come to Agora Gallery. Portals of Perception features a small, select group of painters who create works of fascinating detail. There are cityscapes made of buildings with real personalities, abstract texture-based pieces that turn acrylic paint into physical patterns, beautiful watercolor visions of the seaside, snapshots of modern urban spaces, and portraits of women who refuse to fit into any mold. All are rooted in a particular reality almost clear enough to reach out and touch. The Saturated Palette, by contrast, includes ten artists and offers a far-seeing look at the way color can be used in fine art. Color is used as an accent, as a suggestion, as a main subject, and thrillingly as an exclamation point. It is bold here and subtle there, straightforward in some works and revealed only in contrast in others. For these imaginative artists working in paint, pastel, and encaustic, the possibilities are endless.

Both exhibitions run March 10, 2017 through March 30, 2017 with an opening reception on the night of Thursday, March 16 from 6-8 pm. Entrance is free.
