Description: Agora Gallery is pleased to announce two upcoming group exhibitions: Illumination: An Exhibition of Fine Art Photography and Spring Awakenings: Re-Visioning the Ordinary.

Illumination features recent works by eight photographers including Sam Barrow; Paul Christener; Stacey Dolen; Linda Harding; Shifra Levyathan; Lorella; Alexander Toto; and Wallace. These artists consider the affective possibilities of dynamic light in their compositions, which range from atmospheric landscapes to geometric abstractions. Working with both natural sunlight and dramatic, artificial light, the artists included use luminescence as a painterly medium, the luster of their scenes offering a transportive quality to the works on view. Printed on aluminum or metallic paper, digitally manipulated or traditional analog, the varied photographs embrace the radiant potential of light to convey emotion, attitude, and ambience. Illumination brings together these diverse views, offering a new take on the limits of the photographic medium.

Spring Awakenings is an exhibition offering fresh perspective on traditional subject matter. The exhibition features works by nine emerging artists including Jerry Anderson; Maria Beykirch; Abigail Custis; Lizzy Forrester; Nancy Holleran; Becky Sungja Kim; Maribel Matthews; Margit Enggaard Poulsen; and Jenna Rose Simon. With works ranging from abstracted landscapes and painterly pastoral scenes to playful still lifes and evocative portraits, the artists included create alternative ways of seeing, elevating the everyday and disrupting conventional views. By re-visioning the ordinary, these artists present new worlds, creations in which quotidian scenes are imbued with excitement and wonder. Bright, tender, emotive, and confident, the varied offerings in Spring Awakenings seek new beginnings.

Both Illumination: An Exhibition of Fine Art Photography and Spring Awakenings: Re-Visioning the Ordinary will open April 28, 2018 with a reception Thursday, May 3, 2018 6-8 PM and will remain on view until May 18, 2018. Entrance is free.
